LISTEN [read] HERE: I'm so old my background would take a few books.
Perhaps - and the only thing that comes to mind [at this moment] is to direct you to my personal 'site' http://www.poetsailor.net/author/sailor/

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
That's simple - the real 'Super Computer' is the World Wide Web, and so, if there did (does) exist an intelligence who, thousands of years ago, transmitted data where and in the form that we are looking for - I for one do want to know.
I do believe, and logic dictates, if 'Life' began first via nuclear fusion, then followed by the combining of those Elements so as to form 'DNA' on this Planet - then 'Life' must exist elsewhere in the Universe.
Since 'Life' must exist elsewhere in the Universe within one or more of the billions of Galaxies, would not logic also tell us 'Life' has a good probability of existing elsewhere within our Galaxy?
