Narcissism

I was flipping through my copy of One Taste: The Journals of Ken Wilbur and randomly stopping at various passages and I came across this:

The comedian Dennis Miller nailed it: "Only man is a narcissistic enough species to think that a highly evolved alien life force would travel across billions and billions of light years--a group of aliens so intelligent, so insouciant, so utterly above it all, they feel no need to equip their spacecraft with windows so that they can gaze out on all that celestial beauty--but then immediately upon landing, their first impulse is to get in some hick's ass with a flashlight."
