Dear readers, if such exist, I have quite a question for you today.

Now, it may seem silly to you that I bring up this subject, but I think it is an important question. But it is something that I believe every human being has pondered at least once: Are we – the inhabitants of this planet, both humans and animals – the only being beings capable of intelligent thought in the entirety of the universe? (And don’t argue with me over the idea of animals being capable of intelligent thought. Observe them for a while and tell me they do not form the same kind of familial and social patterns as we do.)

In simpler terms, are there aliens, or are we alone?
