68. Particularly if one accepts the full implications of the theories of
natural selection and evolution, the idea that 'homo sapiens' represents the height of evolutionary development strikes me as arrogance of the first order.

My own personal feeling is that if there are alien species who have figured out ways to do interstellar travel, they will look at life on earth pretty much as an interesting exhibit, much like we look at aquariums or other closed animal colonies on earth.
