The fact that we now have a confirmed Earth-like planet in the habitable zone is one thing, but the fact that there are a few hundred more options under consideration just goes to show how NOT unique we really are in the grand scheme of things.
I hope in time people come to understand that, and that it's actually a positive thing, because that means there are countless universal 'brothers and sisters' out there for us to eventually meet and learn from. Of course, we gotta get this house in order pretty quick, like ditching archaic modes of global operation in favor of something a bit more...suitable to our present day knowledge and capabilities. :)
