What if they have found us?
Pardon me, dear one (again, peace to you!); I should have been more clear and said "manifested having found us TO us." Somehow let us know that they know we're here.
From this point on, I need to ask your patience and to bear with me. Because I did do my usual bump-by-bump... and then I came to the conclusion (which may be wrong, but makes sense to ME) that if what you say is true, no two of such life forms will likely ever cross one another's path/make contact. Too many variables and so "star-crossed" would always be the result. I mean, based on the EVIDENCE... there is NO other life "out there"... nor will there EVER be... because we will never be able to perceive it. Yet, your earlier comments indicate that there COULD be... even though we cannot "behold" such life forms. Yes?
If that's the case, though, how can we SAY there is NO other life "out there"... of ANY "kind"... physical OR spiritual (the first occurring after the "bang", the latter occurring before)... if the ONLY "evidence" is what WE can perceive? That we HAVE no physical evidence of other life... does not mean there IS no other life, does it? Rather, doesn't it simply mean we are not able, yet... if we ever are... to perceive it?
I don't think I'm getting this "evidence" thing so many put out there. It seems to me that folks are saying that unless THEY see it... it doesn't exist. Or, if science hasn't PROVEN it... it doesn't exist. But so MANY things existed... long before man perceived them... or science proved them.
Is the thinking that unless "we" SAY it exists... it does not? And if so... isn't that kind of like the WTBTS' "light" (i.e., truth is what we perceive at a given time... versus what truly IS)?
Do planets and galaxies... and other things... truly NOT exist... until we "discover" them? Is THAT when we're supposed to believe that they actually come INTO existence... when WE see/discover them... or have formulated some way to "test" them? If so, where were they BEFORE we discovered/saw/tested them?
I am sorry if this gives you a bit of brain freeze... but "our" (human) manner of stating what is... and what is NOT... just confuzzles me. It's like the England/France/Spain trinity saying the New World didn't exist... until THEY discovered it (which justified their laying claim to... and virtually slaughtering all those residing UPON... it).
What makes something EXIST? Sight? What if you cannot see? Realizations by one of the other empirical senses? But we not only could not see that little planet called Kepler 16b... we STILL can't. Nor can we taste, touch, smell, or hear it. We only know it's there by observing other celestrial phenomena. But it was THERE, was it not... even before we could even make such observations, yes? Did it not exist before?
What MAKES something exist?
Sorry, but I don't get what I perceive to be a double-standard, dear one, so any further clarification you are willing to indulge me with will be greatly appreciated.
Again, peace to you... and I hope my thoughts here aren't too much for you (or anyone else who would respond).
