On Being: Jill Tarter
Over the weekend, I was up early and returning a ton of cement to Menard’s. In the car, I was listening to NPR and caught a show I don’t normally listen to: On Being with Krista Tippett.
There were several moments that captured my attention, but this is what really got me:
So I think that part of the lesson there is, we need to stop projecting what we think onto what we don’t yet know.
Tarter talked about how our tools were only designed to look for life as we knew it, and once we expanded that… we began to find life in unexpected places.
I sat in the car/parking lot for a while, on arriving. And it was difficult to pull away, once I arrived. This is an episode worth listening to, and just terribly, terribly fascinating.
