There are billions of galaxies in the universe, billions of stars, billions of planets… Do you want there to be no other kind of life? The problem is another: with the knowledge we have, especially in physics, which puts us under the constraints of the speed of light, we will never be able to contact one of these intelligent civilizations, because they are so far away.”.
