Life in the Universe. The philosophic aspects of the problem of searching

M.V. Prokopenko


We want to know – does extraterrestrial life exist or not? This problem is very complex. Modern science is a very powerful instrument for exploration of space phenomena, but for adequate decision and even for understanding the problem of life origin and evolution we need philosophy. Is a scientific method good enough for making decision alone without philosophy, religion and mythology? Let’s consider fundamental features of science and basic principles of life as we know it. Since we don’t know any forms of life but terrestrial, our understanding of what life is is defi-nitely narrow. In historical perspective men looked at the Universe as a living organ-ism. There were many kinds of different conscious but invisible creatures. A modern view is different. We think that life is a tiny island in an inanimate endless space. Where can we find some places appropriate for life inside the Solar System or out-side it? Today we know nothing about extraterrestrial life. Our radiotelescopes can’t get signals from the “little green men”. But does UFO really exist? This question touches not only our mind but our heart as well. And if we wish to investigate a problem of life we really need to switch on not only our rational intellect but also other abilities of a human being.
