    I wonder what that would sound like, listening to life in space from a headset connected to a disc in a desert – I always thought it might be something like being underwater in the ocean and listening to a coral reef – it has a sound, it's not mechanical – but it almost is, in a random sort of way, something like how popcorn sounds in various stages of cooking – and these discs in the desert look kinda like giant jiffy pop pans without the handle. Everybody likes popcorn right – no matter what planet you're from.

    Hey Miles!
    This is so cool! I am not so vain that I believe we are the only living creation in the whole universe. You describe the possibilities very well Miles. I totally agree.
    Having seen UFO's myself. I have to ponder and wonder about all the possibilities. What is life all about anyway?
    Well, one thing I know. It is too big for my human brain to comprehend but I do believe we are not alone.
    I come in peace. . .
    Thanks for a fasinating report! I hope we discover something cool, like the secret to peace, or the cure for cancer or aids.
    This could be a good thing. And we can all thank the same creator.
    All the best~
