It's fun to speculate but you can always narrow down motiviation
to something or a group of somethings trying to survive. How
they survive is interpretive via their actions but us applying a
'good' or 'evil' title is entertaining to me.

It was 10 years ago when a pal of mine, a professor at a top
university in Asia made us all laugh during a visit back home to
the east coast where we grew up. We've known each other since
Jr. high school and he's reknown for his quick wit and sarcastic
bite. We were all piled into the living room like when we were
teenagers watching tv. He was out voted as to the movie we were
watching which was a sci-fi flick. Of course there was a battle
in outer space and a villain and while we all, save he, were
enthralled by the action he blurted out,

" Why is there 'Evil' in outer space? What's wrong with these
writers that they just have to have 'Evil' in outer space? "

All of us were then rolling on the floor laughing as the
absurdity hit us.

He was right. We humans have to put that 'Evil' into something.

Any new environment, somehow, some way we'll toss in that
cliche'd villain with the henchmen and wide collar and menacing
pet perched either on his shoulder or close to heel.

My fried had us at his mercy as he went on cracking jokes about
'Evil' in outer space until another friend rose to her feet and
retorted,

" There's got to be 'Evil' in outer space or nobody would watch
the damned movie or want to explore it! "

He replied, " Ah! 'Evil' as motivation! That's western history
for you!"

We could barely get through the movie with these two going at
it.

Not to say there isn't 'Evil' in outer space, but shouldn't we
wait before putting it there? We don't want to repeat the errors
of our ancestors who found everyone 'Evil' and used it as
justification for conquest and slavery.

I'm sure there are civilizations where ex wives, mothers in law,
lawyers, bad hair days, and beuracracy exist so I guess we can
say 'Evil' would then exist.

I guess the other guy's always 'Evil' cause his grass is
greener.


Best,

Greg
