We soon will discover that the universe does not just consist of the world we inhabit, but many parallel worlds, all existing on top of one another, but unaware. These pass through each other, inhabiting the same space, sharing the same timeline, but are radically different from each other, and utterly alien to each other.

It will take centuries for us to understand these worlds, and to connect with them, but we will discover the most extraordinary thing: There is also life there, although not life as we know it, and intelligence, although not intelligence as we know it.

It will confirm what we have long suspected: That the universe teems with life, although life beyond our imagination, beyond our understanding.
