Yeah, but what would it mean to live that way? It would feel like “Humanity’s Best Days were in the Past”.
If planets such as Proxima-B are inhabited by intelligent life, and here we come… Visitors from Space.
And yeah… what if it’s happening because our own system is going down the tubes?
Of course… I guess in the probability of things depending on how long Proxima-B has existed and how intelligent the lifeforms are, we would have received visitors from that planet first.
Oh well… endless possibilities.
It takes me back to 1996. I walked into a fake TV telecast of an attempt to communicate with aliens using a helicopter with lights (It was actually a disguised promo for the film INDEPENDENCE DAY) and the shock I felt when the helicopter was destroyed by the UFO. I was like: “Crap! What do we do now?!? Sh*t! We’re at war!”… It’s like you can’t believe what you’ve just seen/read but then you also start thinking about how many things have changed just because of aliens/UFO’s.
