I believe that extraterrestrial intelligent life exists. And I am confident that we will soon establish a contact with an advanced extraterrestrial civilization. I want to help this and therefore I have been participating in the SETI@Home project since 2001. BTW, for the first time I have found out about SETI in the early 1980s, having read the book "Universe. Life. Intelligence" by I.S. Shklovsky.
