The Search for Intra-Terrestrial Intelligence

Some people take a dim view of the SETI project, considering it to be a waste of time and effort. I have come to realise, however, that it is actually a very worthwhile activity. Searching for intelligent life out there, that is. I mean, it’s not like we have any here on this planet… If we are ever going to find any intelligent life anywhere, it is going to have to be out there in deep space somewhere.

Yet, in line with more realistic views regarding ever detecting life out there (and they are out there, they just want nothing to do with us, trust me) I have decided it to be a more worthwhile effort trying to find intelligent life here on Earth. And hence the SITI project.

Feel welcome to join in the project, via the SITI@home client software. With all of our combined resources we may yet achieve our goal in our own lifetime!
