From a philosophical, metaphysical perspective it certainly does. Many prominent theories have been based on the idea of human particularism. So proving existence/possibility of existences of extraterrestrial, sentient, and complex beings would require a reflection on past conceptions on the nature of reality, an eradication and reconstruction of metaphysics so to speak.

A few users said that it would matter only in the future, but, for the reasons argued above, I think it would matter right on the spot. Arriving at a definitive answer will remove so many ambiguities plaguing intellectual discussions. It may even lead to revolutionary overhaul of the generalized conceptions and structures of the human world.

It is a coincidence that human beings appeared on the earth, and it is only a moment in the universe.

Wow never heard of that one, very interesting and terrifying.

It’s one of the main topic of pretty good sci-fi series (well first two books are good). I don’t think it is real though. Fermi paradox is real, but most of deliberations on it ignore the time and space (which is pretty normal, human brains do tend to have huge trouble with those on a space scale). Human civilization is barely noticeable in tiniest of ranges in merely a century or so, and we are already on the brink of exctinction because capitalists and imperialist warmongers just can’t stop.
