Prometheus: Extended Preview
I promised to review this when it came out, but the movie made no sense to me (read some of the reviews and the trailer), but I think its point is that cosmic life is on the level of a technology for advanced civilizations. That’s an important variant of, or response, to the ‘design argument’ which only sci-fi writers seem to make, but it may be true, gee whiz! In fact, whole universes may be superadvanced technologies of entities taking meta-life forms we don’t yet understand.
Moral: the civilizatin you live in may be a primitve ‘early early’ phase of ‘high barbarism’.
