Don’t get me wrong -each of us, all of us – are vitally unique and important. This planet and what we are all doing here are vitally important. It’s just not the center of everything happening in the Universe.
400 years ago astronomers were able to demonstrate, against incredible resistance, that the Earth was not the physical center of the Universe or even the solar system. In the last century, we learned that there is nothing particularly unique or special about our placement in the cosmos. We circle a pedestrian star in pedestrian galaxy that seems to be one among billions and billions in the detectable Universe.
While science has demonstrated our lack significance, it’s need for proof in the existence of other life in our Universe has allowed science to keep humanity at the center of its paradigm.
Our spiritual conceptions of the Universe and our place in it are an interesting mix. Some of our largest spiritual traditions are very Earth-centric, human-centric. Others are more nebulous, but stop short of really claiming that the other worlds discussed represent other physical worlds in our known Universe. A few minority traditions believe directly that human beings come directly from “the stars” or were placed here by “star people”.
The fact is we innately know that we cannot be alone in this vast cosmos. Even though we haven’t met the other members of the chorus, we know we must not be singing alone.
If Earth or humanity met their ends tomorrow, most of the Universe would go on without hiccup. More than likely, there are other civilizations out there like ours that have reached a level of technical competence and are on the same quest we are – the search for others. The notion that their civilization is not the center of the Universe is as hard to overcome as it is for us.
Yet, at the end of the day, it is an arrogance that will fall before events, evidence, or a releasing of our ancient, embedded mindsets will.
Are we alone? For me the answer is a clear “no”. Does it serve us to continue believing that we are until that breakthrough moment? I don’t believe so. What do you think?
