Common Intelligent Life
What is going to happen when we discover that life and intelligent life, are common both in our galaxy and in the universe?

- We might re-evaluate how precious we consider life. It is super abundant, so perhaps not so sacred.
- The Christian notions of the universe being created solely for their delectation will look pretty silly.
- The notion that Christianity is some privileged religion will look preposterous.
- The notion that humans are the most important animals on the planet may be shaken.
- We may change our attitude to preserving the planet and protecting endangered species as we pick up on the galactic ethic.
- We may have to get used being treated like children by a galactic bureaucracy.
