Random quote of the day:

 

“Let’s say that a ten-lane superhighway is being built next to [an] anthill. The question is: would the ants even know what a ten-lane superhighway is, or what it’s used for, or how to communicate with the workers who are just feet away? And the answer is no….If there is [another] civilization in our backyard, in the Milky Way galaxy, would we even known its presence?…There’s a good chance that we, like ants in an anthill, would not understand or be able to make sense of a ten-lane superhighway next door.”

—Dr. Michio Kaku, “Parallel Universes, the Matrix, and Superintelligence”
