I would never want to do it myself but is being alone in the universe not terrifying at all. I mean, we already know how to change genes and ****. If we just wait until we can terraform and we can spread any form of life we want anywhere. We'd be the same as those we worship as Gods now. Even more importantly, if all life would be created by us it means there will be no more intelligent or brutal species who will kill us except if we created them.

Do you know where a larger, background sized version is?

It's the opening screen of XCOM: Enemy Unknown when you start a new game, I just took a screenshot.

Yeah, it's also one of the possible quotes when you start X2 or X3.
But that's just boring white text with a black background.

Speaking of which, is that a good game?

I enjoyed it quite a bit, yes, but as anon said, it does lack the depth of the older XCOM games, especially in the equipment department, you only have like 4 types of "main" weapons: Assault Rifles, Shotguns, LMG's, and Snipers (not counting pistols or rocket launchers), and each type only has 3 versions: Ballistic, Laser, and Plasma. It's fun and all, but content-wise, it pales in comparison to the previous games.

enjoyable turn based game, yes. but nowhere near as good as it's prequels, because it was casualized to hell.

That's what impossible difficulty is for.

the problem isn't with the difficutly. when i say casualized i mean the one button action on rails. but i can see that the new xcom focused on combat (and ignored everything else...)

the new XCOM had like 20% of the content the first xcom had... but it's just the way firaxis rolls.... look at CIV series.
i mean sure, the combat is better. but that's the only thing. that's why i said "enjoyable". and with all the second wave and ironman options it makes the game much better on any difficulty, but doesn't bring back any of the content missing. whats with the only 10 maps and 3 guns/class. around 17 weapons in total including pistols? fck that... seriously

also check the upcoming XCOM... an fps...

The upcoming XCOM's a squad-based 3rd person shooter you pleb, not an FPS. It uses squad mechanics similar to the old Freedom Fighter games. It USED to be an FPS (It was presented as one when it first revealed 3 years ago), but they rebuilt it from scratch because the original concept made it look too much like Doom game than anything else.

i saw a documentation about the universe a few days ago and they explained that there is somethign called a habitable zone, a zone in a galaxy or solar system that supports life. chances seem pretty low for a planet to be in such a zone.

Actually, the amount of planet's with earth-like properties orbiting habitable zones in the Milky Way galaxy has been estimated to be anywhere between 150-500 million. And that's just in our galaxy, plus new discoveries are being made all the time. I'd say the chances of the Earth being the only inhabited planet in the universe are ridiculously slim.

also we seem to be assuming that just because that zone is where we live it means that planets outside of that zone aren't capable of supporting life. if there's one thing that we know about life from this planet it's that it adapts. why couldn't life exist in hotter or colder areas. there could be types of life out there that are so completely different from anything we have seen on earth that we might not even realize that it is life. there could be beings composed of gases living in stars for all we know.

That and if the universe is as big as we think, there is a somewhat high probability that there HAS to be existence of life other then us in some form, be in intelligent beings, or bacteria.

but do you have evidence about their existence? Your conclusion was just based on optimism (billions stars and we are the only one = bullsyit). Scientific method is based on evidence, what we observed etc. I learnt this from Harvard. My point is to make people understand the line between logical assumption and scientific method.

According to data from Kepler, it's estimated that there are over 100 Earth-like planets withing 10 parsecs from Earth. You need to login to view this link

Just want to point out that I know that just because a planet is in the habitable zone of it's star does not mean it will automatically have life.

Now, estimates are not facts, but they're very educated guesses I suppose. I can't prove there's aliens out there just little as you can disprove it, and there we just end up in a classic "God vs No God"-type argument. All I'm saying is that with our current understanding of the universe the odds for aliens not to exist are pretty low.

There is actually a relatively few number of planets with potential life sustaining properties.

I agree with you but people say that the mathematical probability of intelligent life evolving like it did on earth was so slim it seems almost impossible for it to occur again somewhere else.

Yes, some of the things that have to occur have a chance of occurring that are so miniscule that when compounded with the other things like it, it makes it unlikely that life developed anywhere else. But then the universe is a big place, so it kinda cancels out.

If the universe is as huge as we think, infinite, or just...HUGE as heck. There is a high change of any number of possibilities replicating, be in life, or something else. What could happen is the universe is just so vast, we may NEVER find any other form of life in the universe because we'll never fully check, as there are billions of planets, stars, and etc, in a theoretical infinite universe, with all these probabilities, if there is any life, we may never ever, find it.

You know, one plausible theory to explain why we haven't made contact yet is because everyone else is too busy hiding from each other.

Think about it like this: you're walking home, at night, through a park, and in said park are numerous rapists, murderers, and muggers, cops, and of course there are other people like you simply trying to get home.

Now to get out alive you have 2 options: either cry out for help, which is much too risky because you'll likely attract the attention of every ruffian out there. The second option, and the safest, is to simply remain as quiet as possible, stay hidden, and move silently.

Galactic Space is like that park, only you can't leave it ever, and there are no cops. So that leaves everyone to remain hidden, rather than risk being detected by a hostile race who would seek to genocide their asses in a manner most heinous.

However, the Earth has already screamed many times. We've sent countless messages into space, as far as our technology would let us. Really, us humans have been in this park and screaming the whole time, it's just that our scream isn't loud enough for anyone to hear it.

Also, if earth acts like this, I am sure that at least some percentage of other sentient races in the space act like this too. But they could be simply too far away for us to hear their scream.

there are around septilion stars in observable universe. Observable universe is NOT entire universe, its only amount of universe we can observe because that's how long light from big bang took to reach us.
there is definately life in the universe. Almost certainly there is sentient life.
But because of literally unimaginable SIZE of the universe, there is a question if we will ever meet another race.
Sooner we start to spread around the universe and stop being chained to earth, bigger our chances for long term survival as a species, and for finiding another sentient life.
