Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
SETI@home is not about you or me, it's about listening to the universe and to the world around us. The universe is a big place and it's always speaking to us, whether we're listening to it or not. The notion that an extraterrestrial culture may have sent us a radio message is not really the big picture. It's our willingness to be part of a bigger community that makes us special enough to receive one.
Knowledge is always being shared for our benefit. And if we're smart enough and brave enough and quiet enough we'll always learn something. And the best thing about learning something new is sharing it with others.
It's true. Listening to the stars is more fun than just looking at them.
