  What’s more important than the human mind
  In all the universe, for all we know?
  Perhaps with more exploring we shall find
  That occult cosmic forces may bestow
  Intelligence and even greater powers
  On other beings in the vasts of space,
  Some heavenly place where tranquil wisdom flowers
  Rebuking our wild history of disgrace.
  It’s better, though, if we do not assume
  That life exists in any place but here,
  Then if we fail we’ll absolutely doom
  Our hopes, and all of life will disappear.
       Consider us the most miraculous chance
       The universal void has to advance.
