I am a 41 year old married man with a lovely wife named Carolyn and 5 beautiful children, from oldest to youngest they are; Travis- 21, Jessica- 19, Shannon- 16, Kristina- 15, & Jennifer- 13, of which only the last 2 still live with me and my wife at home. I was totally disabled in an accident on March 5th 1994, which caused severe spinal and nerve damage thereby severely limiting my ability to live a normal life. So, with my physical body limited I decided to take advantage of the blossoming computer age to further develope my mind and enhance my life in other ways than the physical by furthering my education in the computer sciences. To my great satisfaction, this decision has turned out to be much more rewarding than I could have ever have hoped for. I thank you for your time in reading this small segment of my life and I will add to this statement at a later date, as time allows, hopefully it will not bore you too badly!
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. I beleive that E.T. life is as plentiful in the Galaxy as it is on earth, but on a vaster scale. I think that it will be quite some time before we discover life that is on or above our own evolutionary level and I beleive that there are inherent benefits and dangers that go along with all new discovery's and that only by carefully monitoring and controlling the knowledge attained can the benefits far out weight the dangers.
2. Yes, Universal language of peace and friendship.
3. I hope to be a part of something far greater than myself...something that can help direct mankind to a brighter future than we could otherwise attain simply by relying on our own evolutionary scale. I think that this project is a good first step, but that it needs to eventually expand.
