I Reside in the woods by a large glacier-fed lake,

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Do you think extra-terrestrial life exists?
It would be egocentric to believe that life is limited only to our planet.
Unfortunately, It is human nature to believe that we are the center of all existence.
Before Galileo, It was considered common knowledge all of the heavens,
(the Sun, stars and planets) circled the Earth.
Perhaps, our definition of sentient life is also based on an early viewpoint.
Life outside of Earth may not have evolved in our image physically, mentally,
or technologically. It is possible that communication attempts may exist,
using some method other than audio or radio signals, which we are not
presently set to recognize.
The Seti@home project will be increasing its scope and advancing its technology
as the project continues. It may take a long time before we find anything
at all, or perhaps the monumental signal we are all searching for is being
downloaded to your computer right now.
I have no doubt that Extra-terrestrial life exists and will be found.
So Keep Searching, It is a big sky out there.
Why do you run SETI@home?
Seti is much more then the largest computer ever put to use on one problem.
It is people from all nations working together as a worldwide team, striving
in peace towards a common goal, to grow and to learn.
I enjoy the idea of productively using my computer to unite with the efforts of other
users around the world with Seti@home in this great -voyage- of discovery.
