Hi Everyone!

You and I, including NRC scientists, brought up watching Star
Trek on TV where the crew of the Enterprise would encounter
different forms of life, often non-organic in nature, know
better than to restrict their search for life outside our own
physical world by limiting to our current knowledge and
understanding (or science) that is based strictly on input from
our five senses and is restricted to our three dimensional of
reality which is actually multidimensional.

The biology labs is not the only place where I work that we
study living things. In our physics and computer science labs we
are studying non-biological "living" things such as plasmas and
even our theologists talk about our ongoing encounters with
intelligent energies which we they call God, angels and demons.

There are many examples of such weird living things (at least
according to our current definition of what is living and what
is not) here on Earth. A flame is one such example. It grows,
consumes, reproduces, moves and responds to its surroundings and
even dies. Like humans, flames also kill other living things,
including fellow humans. A flame is a "life form" that we and
other ETs would certainly want to monitor and guard against.

The current world religion of "environmentalism" in fact treats
our entire planet Earth as a single living entity, known to some
as Gaia or Mother Earth.

Only by examining things fresh with an unbiased mind will we,
and NRC, make important discoveries of new life forms out there
and within that will surprise us all and answer some of sciences
biggest questions, such as who we are and are we alone in the
