Somewhere in this vast universe, billions of light years from here, there may or may not be intelligent life. Not always is it “talked about” as being more advance than us. I’m sure somewhere it is. We’ll never know for sure, however. The speed of light has a rather pokey speed when it comes to the entire universe, and the speed of light is the absolute speed limit. We’ll only ever be able to wonder. We’ll never know for sure.
