The Indomitable Urge to Search for Life Among The Reaches of Space
It would seem that this urge to discover life forms on other planetoids parallels the one appetite we humans as a species have that is unquenchable: the intellectual. Now we are approaching a stage in our development of biophysical technology where we could envision a capability of deliberately seeding, in a manner of speaking, the cosmos with life. The pessimistic and oligarchic Manichaen worldview shudders in abhorrence at the prospect. Yet somehow there is an ineluctable fascination that captures the imagination that spreading life throughout this universe might just so happen to be written in the very composition of the stars.
