Perhaps they have been living there inside the Sun since the Universe was born, and have climbed to peaks of wisdom which we shall never scale. [. . .] One day they may discover us, by whatever strange senses they possess, as we circle round their mighty, ancient home, proud of our knowledge and thinking ourselves lords of creation. They may not like what they .nd, for to them we should be no more than maggots, crawling upon worlds too cold to cleanse themselves from the corruption of organic life. - Arthur C. Clarke, ‘‘Out of the Sun’’ (1958)
