Manhattan looked up at the night sky, staring into the black abyss, absorbed in thought. She wondered if human beings on Earth were the only sophisticated life forms in the universe. There had been “sightings” in the past of UFOs and alien-like happenings, in truth.

Even considering all that, for some reason, Manhattan really felt that somewhere, somehow, there were other life-forms other than the ones that existed on Planet Earth.
