Contact? They lost me when they mentioned the big bang, though, lol.

This is intriguing: Matter and anti-matter were created in equal amounts and based on recent measurements it seems there is perfect symmetry between the two which implies that our universe should not exist. :) "By rights, we should not exist.... By *rights* we should have been disintegrated at the moment of 'the big bang"!" It seems there was an *excess* of matter for a moment and it caused US! :mrgreen:

There should have been equal amounts of matter and anti-matter. Nobody has an answer to the question, "why should we be here?"

Another phrase that caught my attention was that we can now see that there are as many planets out there as there are "grains of sand on the earth".

But back to the subject at hand, this thing comes from "outside our solar system" - it's the first time ever that something like this has been observed. They call it a "small space rock called A-2017" that is traveling so fast they'll only have a few days to observe it. It's about a quarter of a mile long.

But then they show a headline of "NGTS-1b: Monster planet that 'should not be there' is found". Now, that isn't the same as the A-2017. Why is that thrown in there? This "MONSTER" planet that should be too big for its star is forcing astronomers to rethink their theories." Another says "it's not clear whether it's time to completely rewrite the story of planet formation, or just add an addendum" - hehehe.

We *will* get there, in OUR lifetimes, - "there" being knowing pretty much whether there is or is not intelligent life elsewhere. And then they say that aliens should look pretty much like us. Now i find that really bizarre!

And THEN they jump to the intelligence of computers being equal to the human brain (???) in our lifetime. "Little is known about Way of the Future... the mission of the new religion is to 'develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence". And that these computers will be so intelligent just a few years later that some will think them "divine" and worship them. :? (Another example of making a golden calf?)

"Most of the intelligence in the universe is not soft and squishy like you are it's some sort of machine intelligence. It's no longer clear where do you look."

"...humans can transcend the 'creator/demiurge,' though 'even then, we have the potential to reunite with that source from which we stem." ??? HUH???

"Yet the absence of observed evidence to the contrary is not necessarily the evidence of absence." "Just because we have not observed something does not mean that it cannot exist." - Well, we know that to be true!

It is difficult to watch, imho. It started out with the news of this A-2017 rock and then went to matter and anti-matter, then to the giant planet (where does that fit in?) and AI and .... this video is all over the place, isn't it?
