    Id say, yes. We humans have too high an opinion of ourselves; a good E.T. encounter would certainly knock the chip off our shoulders.

    I imagine our lack of confirmation of this lies with the current state of our technology and the vast distances between stars. That's probably a blessing seeing that we can't get along with each other, we'd be hard pressed to maintain good relations with another advanced race.

    The ship will never reach such a point (actually, I think it starts from there). This is gibberish and you, maxorator, have been defined by me as a clown and you should careful consider the repercussions of this.
    It will never reach the light itself, but I was talking about the current position of that light.

    Nothing to do with aliens, or time, but one of the things I enjoy doing each evening is standing amongst my fruit trees in the yard, and looking at the stars.

    You better watch it, you don't want that to happen again, do you?

    @happyclown: and he smoked what???

    ps. the multiverse was also a product of future alien super-computers, of course.

    Code:
    typedef struct culture {
           char meme_tropeX[]="please don't do this..."
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Ultimately it depends on whether said things can interact with or be interacted with by things in this universe. If they can, then they are really just another part of this universe, albeit that interaction may not be in a 'visible' manner. If they cannot then they would be a classic parallel dimension, but we could never prove the existed, for such proof would itself require some form of interaction.

    I think that by saying that your definition of "universe" includes those things outside of the universe, you are effectively saying that there is nothing that is outside the universe. This seems just as "narrow minded" as saying that there is nothing that is outside the multiverse.
