Nick: When I heard the news, I went to my star charts to figure out when Omega Centaurus will be visible on my southern horizon. I will have to wait until March and April. Then, I will train my telescope in that area and dream what life is like on at least one of those planets. I already had an altered state visit. The planet, in my imagination, was inhabited by some very strange creatures. They were worm like, moved through the liquid surface in a corkscrew fashion and communicated telepathically. Nothing like the humanoids of The Event, but truly alien. I suppose a TV show like The Event doesn't have the budget to create really alien looking entities with other world technology such as my imagination created. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
