AH! I found a way
AH! I found a way to prove or disprove the existence of intelligent life outside of earth! It's based on one assumption, an assumption I feel pretty good about, but I have yet to encounter it proved fully. Check this space within like 48 hours, and we'll see.
2:00 AM - UPDATE: Okay, hold the guns, I get really excited when I think I'm onto something special. My excitement is exponentially decreasing as time passes away from my first acumen. I still feel it's valid. Just wait, I'm doing some research. Here's a pretty well-rounded article on the existence (or lack) of aliens. My theory is based on different underpinnings, but it's still worth reading while you're anxiously waiting for my post.
