I appreciate that Redfern tackles the long-standing assumption that extraterrestrials would necessarily be more advanced. I have had similar feelings on the matter and (not to be too self-referential here) wrote about my quibbles with Stephen Hawking's disbelief that anything more complex than a microbe could exist elsewhere in the universe. http://strangestate.blogspot.com/2008/04/does-stephen-hawking-lack-imagination.html Perhaps these other civilizations (be they from other planets or other dimensions) simply had at their disposal a resource or phenomenon that allowed them to travel in this fashion far easier than it would be for us. Early Americans didn't have the wheel, but were the cliff palaces of the Southwest or the great Central and South American cities any less marvelous than those of the old world? Didn't the Maya have a more accurate calendar than that used by most of the old world? One difference, really. A wheel. A spaceship. Such a minor thing.

Just recorded a show with Nick last night - this is the kinda guy you could talk hours with. He's a terrific interview.

No argument from me there RR - he' a great guy and spent far longer with us than he was supposed to. A genuine person in this can be a rare thing. Nick is one of them.Jeff Ritzmann
