Rezension bezieht sich auf: Are We Alone?: Philosophical Implications Of The Discovery Of Extraterrestrial Life (Taschenbuch)It says a lot about the hubris of mankind that we look for "intelligent life" in the stars instead of right here on earth.
Did we eliminate cetaceans, higher primates and elephants from the running simply because they don't build cities? Because they don't dominate their environments like we do? Because they don't look like us? Because they don't speak English?
What does that say about our response to an extra-terrestrial intelligence should we ever find one? Would we even recognize it?
If even 1% of the SETI budget was redirected to animal language studies, I suspect we'd be able to talk to "alien" intelligences right now.
