Estimates by astronomers indicate that there could be more than 100 BILLION Earth-like worlds in the Milky Way that could be home to life. Think that’s a big number? According to astronomers, there are roughly 500 billion galaxies in the known universe, which means there are around 50,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (5×1022) habitable planets. That’s of course if there’s just ONE universe.

In fact, just inside our own Milky Way Galaxy experts now believe are some 400 BILLION STARS, but this number may seem small as some astrophysicists believe that stars in our galaxy could figure the TRILLION. This means that the Milky Way alone could be home to more than 100 BILLION planets.

The universe is indeed a spectacular place jammed full of lifeforms. There will be biologicals like us and AI's that have out lived their flesh and blood creators. There will also be pure energy beings living outside of space-time that can dip in and out of the physical realm. There are places too where thoughts reside that form yet another aspect of reality. Thoughts are the oddest thing as they are the only thing that us humans can understand that have neither mass or a location - and yet they are REAL (and so must exist somewhere). When contact with ET's ( friendly) happens - that's when our questions will begin to find answers.
