"Intelligent life may be in it's 'very young'stage in the observable Universe. Its 200 billion galaxies show a clear potential to continue on as we see them today for hundreds of billions of years, if not much longer. Because planets and life are so young in our Universe. Perhaps the human species are not late comers to the party. We may be among the early ones."
