there had better not be life out there!


I thoroughly enjoyed re-reading an essay on why we better hope we don't discover extra-terrestrial life. It's 8 pages of superb writing and is pretty thorough (check how he explains the myriad possibilities, and how he challenges even those), and nearly as exciting as the 1st time I read Richard Feynman's "There's Plenty of Room At the Bottom". I consider this essential reading for any enquiring mind.
