I relate. My brain thought about the technology to even step into this task isn't foreseeable soon. I then thought the time, effort and resources should be spent on renewable energy, solving hunger, reducing/eliminating climate control and establishing universal healthcare. Then I thought about why do I spend time talking about this on a MBTI forum. Then I thought I should finish my last to do item for today.Which could exist perhaps billions of light years away. You know the type of places that would take, 1 million years to travel to. This is why cannot fully dismiss the possibility of intelligent life elsewhere in the known and unknown universe. But the other side of my brain says, in this local cluster of galaxies, maybe we are the only intelligent life forms. Even for super intelligent alien life forms, having to travel for 1 million years to get to us, even with time and space bending, it would still be an amazing accomplishment.
What I'd actually do? I went to the pantry for a snack.
