LIFE OUTSIDE OF PLANET EARTH:
When working on my screenplay, The Cogency, I ran into many in military who back my assertions that the universe is teaming with life, that the US has diplomatic relations with at least one species outside of our world, that the earth has been visited since the dawn of man, and we are not ready yet as a species to have all of this revealed to the public.
Just watching an episode of COSMOS should convince thinking people that life is not a fluke and that the technology to move from star to star is not just a science fiction concept. After all, many moons ago, people were SURE the Earth was flat, were SURE that we were the center of the universe, were SURE that there was only 7 planets in the Solar System, etc., etc.
Keep an open mind...but not too open, or your brain might fall out. =O)
