Very true. I guess what I take away from the universe is that humanity most likely won't ever find a life form that is nearly as advanced as we are unless it comes to us first, and because of the sheer scope of the universe, there is most likely intelligent life else where in its infinite reaches. We may not exist long enough to find out for certain.
