one hundred per cent different from assuming that it *does* exist. It further
makes the assertion that it is worth trying to find this out, and therefore
searches for it. This is testing a hypothesis, ie "there is intelligent life on
planets other than the earth." And, so far it has not found any such signals, so
there is no cause to assume.
