On the SETI, the Fermi Paradox and God is Love.

It is not so that there is no god nor is it so that there is no self but rather that there is only god or that there is only oneself. Now self may call itself cosmic consciousness or whatnot but truth remains the same. The purpose of god is love. The purpose of self is love. It is this why there is biodiversity. The purpose of biodiversity it is companionship, it is friendship, it is love. We are indeed not as divided as it appears.
