Hi Gals and Guys,
From the time Galileo looked through the telescope at stars in 1610
To the first accurate measurement of distance to those stars in 1838
was a time when all estimates were in error.

Stars are relatively simple atomic machines
compared to intelligent social beings which draw their energy from one of those stars (Our Sun)
via various chemical transformations and create
highly entertaining/entropic sinks for that energy.
Most likely, the tools which enable humans to
"watch" one another at a distance are not conferring any power to comprehend the true meaning of what they see. It will likely be more than 200 years before they do, if the stars are any guide.
With rigor I would defend that thesis, however
fancifully it was posed.

WR,
Mike
