The Nerds discuss the work of director, writer, and undersea explorer James Cameron.
Hey there dear readers, Kevin Sutorius here. I come to you today with a new series, entitled Best o’ Boxes, covering some of my favorite and well-made box sets of movies and tv shows. Since there are a lot of box sets, I want to share with you the ones that make a difference.
For this first edition, I’m covering the Alien Anthology (which does not include Prometheus) on Blu ray. Although this set came out in 2010, this is a box set worth talking about, even today.
The planet Earth is a noisy and active place. Full of radio transmissions, pollution, bustling cities, and billions of people making it all happen. Assuming that in our universe, we are accompanied by other highly developed intelligent life forms, they most likely would be doing something similar on their worlds. If that is the case, then we should have a very clear picture of what to look for during our search. Last time we looked at humanity’s willingness to accept the concept of alien life. Now we examine our efforts to find it.
Part 1 – Laying the Foundation
The concept of intelligent life forming outside of our planet has been around for quite some time. Most people throughout history have conceptualized this idea as a powerful supreme being, a god-like intelligence that determines the fates of the very people that believe in it. That is not what this blog is about. While the search for a higher power is a worthy cause for any theologian or spiritual enthusiast, I’m looking to discuss something a little more down to earth… or at least earth like.
