My answer to How would you react if one day we found out that we were the only ones in the universe?
Answer by Vijayendra Mohanty:
To the best of our knowledge, we ARE the only ones in the universe. And we are reacting to this awareness on a daily basis by… well… being ourselves.
Any change in our pattern of reactions will probably only come if we actually find that we AREN’T the only ones in the universe. That would be something.
We don’t live in a universe where the existence of life on other planets is currently a factor that weighs on our minds on a daily basis.
