I am a professional musician and teacher who dabbles in computer networking (I was once a tech support specialist for a major communications company), and who believes that it would be an arrogant assumption that we are alone in the universe. And yes, I am a rabid X-Files fan who owns every single episode---the truth is out there! Please support live music and the arts!

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. Yes, I do believe we are not alone. And I sincerely hope in my lifetime I will see proof, especially if it links and bonds the world's cultures, religions and civilizations together.
2. Yes and No; Yes as long as it benefits mankind and not anyone else's ideology or political agenda.
3. Total fascination with the belief that we will bear witness to tangible proof of the existence of extra-terrestrial intelligence.
