It could be as tiny as a cell or in a form we can’t even imagine, but people around the world from Australia to Brazil told The Epoch Times they believe there is other life in the universe.

Do you believe there is other life in the universe?

It would be really selfish to believe that we are the only life in the universe. In my opinion, considering the inconceivable meaning of the universe, some other form of life does exist, yet it is challenging to discover whether it’s similar to our ecosystem. Personally, I hope it is found soon because our planet seems to be quite in despair.

Yes I do, because the universe is so large that there has to be something else out there. Even if it means that life is just tiny organisms or plants, there has to be something.

I think it is definitely possible; it’s not a 100 percent sure because we haven’t proved it yet. I always find it a little funny when scientists only look for life on planets like earth. Who is to say that some form of life couldn’t exist on the sun? I suppose it makes sense to look for what we know, but when they make formulas on speculative information, I find it a little comical. Religion aside, with the utter incomprehensible vastness of the universe, it’s nonsense to believe life doesn’t exist elsewhere in some form.

Yes, I believe [there is other life in the universe], because when we know the spiritual world, we understand the different forms of life in other bodies. For example, when a child is born, I understand that the spirit came reincarnated, to improve this planet earth, and develop the divine moral.

I do believe there is life in the universe. One day we’ll find it, but I won’t be alive to see it. But I am very interested in what is happening out there at the moment and the robot that got on Mars. I read a lot on that and see what I can catch out on it. It was only a week or so ago I was reading about it finding a rock. They could have had water on Mars. Yes, I quite believe there is something out there in the universe.

I believe that there is [other] life, at least advanced, in the universe. And it is not limited, but that it is difficult to define its scope.
