Why are we searching for evidence of life on other planets?

If we already know that we are not alone in the universe, then why are we searching for evidence of life on other planets?

We are NOT alone.

We know pretty well that we are not alone. Everyone might perceive this fact, but still may not totally believe because seeing is believing.

In the past, or even today, many Yogis have visited other planets and declared that there are infinite number of stars and planets, yet we tend to count them because we have been brought up to count anything and quantify.

Quantify our thinking and thoughts!

We know we can't quantify our thinking and thoughts, yet we like to quantify.

For example, I know well that I am not new as a soul among the infinite souls that exist, yet I would like to count my previous births though I cannot remember them but I know I had been through many births.

When I close my eyes and sit contemplating about my inner self, I could see the same infinite space within me as I can imagine seeing outwardly beyond the solar system as far as my thought could see.

Yet we always tend to measure and quantify, though we know well that certain aspects of this Creation are not measurable and quantifiable.

Age of my soul is not measurable

The age of my soul is not measurable, so is the expanse of this Universe.

People may argue that space scientists are trying to measure the size of this universe, and at the same time we hear that there are many universes around our home universe.

Its true that there are infinite universes containing infinite number of stars, planets and many more heavenly bodies which humans would name in future as they come across.

As a whole there is one INFINITE Universe of which we are a speck as everyone agrees.

God has made an amazing universe my friend ....but He is mindful of us ... specks on a speck in the vastness of it all.
Bless you

Thank you dear friend Stella,

Yes, God is totally mindful of us and every creature as well.
And I agree that it is more right to say our planet is a tiny speck on another small speck of the vastness and its quite amazing to realize this fact.

Blessings.

Thanks Carolina for your comments.

In fact, the entire text of this page was posted as a comment to an article that posed the same question I discussed here.

And the comment was deleted I don't know why, so I thought it can be posted here as an article.

It is general tendency to search to search for life on other planets forgetting that many of these lives don't want to be searched for and term human intrusion as invasion.

With regard to the Universe, Nasa is no God but just a hint showing the fact that there is life beyond Planet Earth and humans and their gadgets are not welcome inside.
While the soul is immeasurable and unquantifiable in the human realm, the evidence of its age is seen in the palms of your hand and feet wherein every line adds knowledge and age to the energy source that it is.
The mortal frame is just a shell of who and what the soul is and what you learn in this life and about the Universe is all part of the learning process that progresses you into various stages as defined by the One Above.
The Stages of Progression for the Soul are:
1) New Souls which are very primitive
2) The Baby Soul which is very rule based and concentrates of religions
3) The Young Soul which is experimental in nature and tries permutation and combination of experiences but not totally religiously oriented as the Baby.
4) The Mature Soul which is the reiteration of all the knowledge together and are known to be resourceful and may be destructive to their own body self depending on their experience.
5) The Old Soul: The One of experience and life who has the sage style of experimenting in life and extremely knowledgeable.

All soul ages can be determined by the shape of the eyes and the faces and they type of being or soul being that you really are. While I am not going to delve into dept of this, the knowledge is extensive and they baffle many.

The energy sources are not quantifiable to anyone on this planet only for the fact that the tools are under-developed and many humans like the SIN, Cortez, Rania and Reni try to play God in this area which could be absolutely displeasing to the Heavens above. It may be a game for many but they are thoughts that could harm and destroy lives as the world is not that of religion but that of dearness and love which is sadly lacking in this world around in many just because they ALL want to play God on Planet Earth who finally revolts and sends them back crying because of the quakes and tremors showing ALL life on the planet that we are all going to die unless we assist in saving the Planet not by sending destructive warships using Commander James and his troop.
Leave life the way it is on this Planet as Creation gives you what is needed not what you desire but the fact remains that it is very wary of the fact that we are destroying all the resources by pollutants that are killing many well-meaning lifeforms and sending all to an early grave only to find they are taking their own lives too.

That was so nice of you dear Lady Aiyanna, I agree with you ... NASA is no God, but the efforts of NASA are needed for us to know physically where we are in the Universe, and we are indebted to NASA for their research and findings.

I admire your multi-faceted wisdom.

Life is all about energy forms not the shell we see to call ourselves the advanced form of life with zero tolerance to all other lifeforms and their planetary enclosures. Humans are not be all and end all of life who have the right to invade other Planets and lives to show there is life out there. They can be destroyed in a heartbeat if the need be be but creation is very tolerant with them including their behaviour and life in general.

Just a thought, what if we took our body and wondered what and how many universes we would find in it? I have often wondered as we seem to go from macro space to micro space. Oh and the life forms...what if the life forms were made up of different things besides carbon, like gas? Just a few things I have been wondering and your beautifully written page set me off on another one of my diverse thoughts. :)

Thought provoking, Rathna. We keep learning, unlearning and relearning! It is an exciting journey for mankind. What we see and feel is limited to what is out there - just beyond our comprehension. We are like ants whose territory is limited - okay for us a lot more, but still limited! siva
