The fascinating way of proving something that we can not prove it through actual being or pictures is logic. Examples like ghost, human’s future and extraterrestrial life are unable to directly attest, but with the help of logical power, we can at least have pretty varieties of valid arguments. Because logic itself can’t be wrong, otherwise we are not real, everything we’ve seen and built could be random and inconstant. Without logic, we can not reason, deduce, analysis, argue, persuade, nothing would be done. If we put ourselves in this reasonable fashion, then we are sure to be able to see the truth hidden from common sense.
Now If you are on the same page with me, I am going to justify the very existence of aliens, even the intelligent ones.
1. We, earthlings, are virtually lives
If there is a bunch of living beings far far away from us lives on another galaxy, there would be time for them to wonder if any aliens exist. And guess what? We are the aliens to them metaphysically. The existence of us tells two important messages, one is this world does have lives, another is this universe allow lives to dwell.
2. Think about just how tremendous the universe is
It won’t be hard to find out the diameter of our observable universe, that is 93 billion light years. It literally means one would spend 93 billion years to accomplish the full journey. And think about how many galaxies intersperse within and how many planets a galaxy owns. That’s just googol. With this large distribution, it’s hard to believe there ain’t any alien lives. And according to a 2013 study, habitable earth-like planets are just more common across universe than we thought before.
3. We may 1 billion years late
The current age of universe is 13.8 billion years, and our dear earth is just 4.54 billion years. The majority of stars and galaxies formations started at about one billion years after the big bang, so probably during this duration, other forms of vita have already developed high civilizations, way earlier than us. You know how to draw a graph of technology development from thousands of years ago to now, yeah, it is a curve, and the curvature will be more steep along with time, and one billion years is enough to mark as distinct.
4. Everywhere of our universe shares the same periodic table
So we need hydrogen, oxygen and carbon to support our system, they are the most common materials you can find all over the world, so do other places. We are alive, they can too.
5. Primordial soup is yummy
With that time, that abundant common elements, transformations are easy to happen in primordial soup of planets, organic compounds are no problems to be formed. And once it happened, it wouldn’t easy to be vanished totally, think about all the extinction events earth got caught.
I may go on, but that’s it. I must say, every single argument can not 100 percent guarantee the corollary, but as a matter of logic, with all combined, it is a cinch that a alien does exists. Although science and logicality are all rigorous and serious about all stuff, a rough but reliable sense which caused by logic can give us a right way to validity. Many a time, we do have no downright evidence about something, but we always figure out what to do aright, because many things we can’t prove yet, but deep down our sane heart, we think they are the ones to pursue, thanks to our logic system.
Good prompt, this one, Do or Die, and I am indeed serious about science.
