I was borned in Tromsø, a cold february night in the year 1977. Tromsø is in the far north of Norway, and Norway is in the faar north of Europe... yes it is quite a cold and desolate place. This is why I have constantly tried to move to warmer and more central places of the earth. First I moved south to Lillehammer, I stayed there for 3 years. Then I moved further south towards the sun, and ended up in Budapest (Hungary). I stayed there for two years. Then I took a step backwards and lived in Oslo for a few years, before I finaly found the climate I have always wanted. I moved to "The Sunshine state", yes Queensland, Australia. Brisbane to be more precise. I have lived there for 3 years soon, and only time can tell where I will go next.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I defiently think that we are not alone in the Universe. I think that a meeting with a new entity might bring both dangers and salvations. But I think that no mather what we will find, it is better if we find them, rather then them finding us. so should we send a beacon? I think that we already are. All the noise that we create with our telecomunications etc should be enough. The problem is that the space is so large, (and getting bigger), and the speed of light is only that fast... will our signal ever reach another race? Maybe we should try to get a signal to travel faster? or maybe we should send vessels trought black holes or something ?
I support Seti at home, because I have a computer that is not in use 100% of the time, and I want to do my part! Who knows! maybe I will find inteligent signals out there!
