it could be there as aspects of reality that are beyond the capacity of
our brains.” 
to the shear numbers, there are almost certainly other planets capable
of supporting at least some form of life. If that is so, then for
Earthlings to be the very first species ever to make a noticeable mark
on the universe, from a statistical perspective, is incredibly unlikely.

Biologically Constituted Realities: An Anti-Anthropocentric (Species-Relative) and New-Paradigm Perspective at http://bit.ly/biolreal:

ABSTRACT: Our particular biological set creates our human world, which
sets it apart from that of all other known living organisms. Our
sciences are extensions of our senses, but only that, since we are
predetermined to extend ourselves in only the ways conforming to our
biological paradigm— i.e., we cannot “see” in “areas” that we could not
think even to “look.”

and datum, or some arrogant presumption of preeminent status for our
species (unfortunately encouraged by our Judeo-Christian conceptual
baggage) —either of which are incompatible with a truly scientific
attitude and with the manner of endeavor into knowledge that has proven
useful to us, we must conclude that our “brute facts” of reality are
species-specific, that reality is species-relative, and that our
reliance on our species-specific “discoveries” of “reality” for
anything other than a limited and “species-relative” truth is evidence
of a species arrogance and an anthropocentrism that we need to strive
to overcome for any true understanding to be possible….
