Actually, I disagree with my above statement. Firstly, I've not had an alien encounter...not even illegal aliens. Secondly, even if I did, my first hand experience does not automatically mean that it's true...much less scientific.
In the essay I wrote entitled, "The Reality of Our Reality," I used the concept of Schrodinger's cat-in-the-box as a metaphor for our minds. Everything outside of our minds is in a state of all-possibilities.
Since alien beings are an unverifiable concept, it is in a state of all-possibilities. Therefore, aliens both exist and don't exist.
To tie that in with the above statement you quoted, we should not discard the idea until it is verified...and even then, that conclusion is subject to change.
