So what exactly is wrong with what we're doing ?

I never stated there is anything wrong in what
we are doing. I am all in favour of pushing ourselves
to discover as much as we can about the Universe. I am
just merely suggesting that we need to realise that there are
limitations. Specifically two : time and intelligence. We only have
five billion years left before the Sun implodes and that will be the end
of human civilisation unless we develop advanced space travel and discover
alternative compatible worlds. And we have a limited brain capacity too. We are
after all nothing more than advanced bacteria. So I am all for learning much as we can
Just realise that one day all this will cease to be. Nothing lasts for ever. Everything eventually dies
