Why we will never see intelligent life out in the cosmos.

I think I know where everyone is hiding. It is just a theory but hear me out. Brian Greene in his amazing book, The Hidden Reality, (2011) page 170, suggests it is happenstance that, “We find ourselves on one such planet situated 93 million miles from our sun because that’s a planet on which our form of life could evolve.”

We know that our universe is finely tuned for life to occur and sensitive to fundamental physical constants with values that cannot differ even slightly or we would not exist. It does seem beyond mere chance that our universal home is programed for intelligent life. But among the millions of trillions of found planets, we haven’t as of yet seen or even heard from other intelligent extraterrestrials.

In order to be like us, our alien friends would need to live on a earth exactly like ours, the same 93 million miles from a sun exactly like ours, and a similar solar system exactly the same distance from a galactic center like ours–all with the same momentum and spacetime. I am sure other intelligent life-containing planets would not be clones, would be in their own space, with their own personality, but with the same momentum and position as our earth from their sun and from their galaxy center. This would put all intelligent life planets on the same timeline, some probably in our own neighborhood.

Thus there could be billions of solar systems containing a Goldilocks earth like ours in a same timeline even in our own Milky Way Galaxy. So why can we not see their past or for that matter, our own past light left behind? I would suggest we cannot see them, nor they us, because of the speed of light. Let me explain…..

When we look out into the cosmos all we can see is the past, not the present, not the future. Beyond solar systems, the distances to the other stars are measured in past light years. If we could pinpoint where our earth was in the past with respect to its position now and our galactic center, the light that came from the earth then has long since travelled beyond where the earth is now. The light reflected from our earth moves much more quickly than our earth itself moves. When we point a telescope to a position where the earth was it won’t show us the earth because the light coming from the earth at that time is already gone. It is because of the speed of light and our slower momentum that we cannot see ourselves or all other earths in the same momentum and position timeline. Nor can they see us or their own past because we are all in the same ‘now’ timeline.

Perhaps billions upon billions of fellow human beings are looking for us and wondering where we are and here we are just living next door looking for them.

Tyson’s interview “If you could live forever would you?” explains need for faith, not proof.

You have probably seen the Larry King interview when Neil deGrasse Tyson eloquently explains why he would not want to live forever. He said, “If you could live forever would you?” Then he added, “The way I look at it is the knowledge that I am going to die is what creates the FOCUS I bring to being ALIVE. The urgency of ACCOMPLISHMENT. The need to express LOVE now not later. If we live forever why ever even get out of bed in the morning because you always have tomorrow. That is not the kind of life I want to live.”

If we knew for sure we will live forever, I think Neil deGrasse Tyson might have a good point. Instead it seems to me Tyson has explained why God’s plan requires faith and not a full knowledge.

The question I have ask myself is– why, if there is a God, do we need to live a mortal life in the first place? The pain, the fear, the unknowns of physical life are sometimes overwhelming. For what purpose must we experience joy and happiness mixed with a healthy dose of tribulation? Why not just skip the travail and go straight to the eternal happiness.

To have that sought after everlasting happiness made me realize there will have to first be a sorting. The purpose of mortal existence is somehow tied to gaining a resurrected immortal body by first experiencing temporary physical law at the same time learning eternal moral law from the good and the bad of physical choices.

In life we learn as Tyson says, to FOCUS on being ALIVE, to ACCOMPLISH, and to express LOVE. When we FOCUS on motivating faith that there is an everlasting ALIVE, we will not procrastinate because we know there will be an accounting. We will want to ACCOMPLISH great and wonderful things. We will want the ability to LOVE and be kind so we can live with kind and loving people. The Savior told us the number one most important commandment is in Matthew 22:37-40, “Love the Lord thy God with all they heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

Why would I want to be ALIVE forever? Why? To live without fear. To be separated from those who do not want to LOVE or be kind. To compensate those who died young or had their lives wrongfully taken. To allow joy to those who had none on this earth. To ACOMPLISH things we cannot even imagine. To FOCUS on progress and helping others progress. To be with those we LOVE for eternity.

“On M. Kasey, Author above read about the novel, Marty’s Dark Matter. To order this very unusual fictional story about Marty in paperback allows you to return and mull over the mystery, intrigue, and concepts. It also helps if you have an interest in the cosmos and are open to there being a Creator.”
