Do you really think humans would be the most superior  creatures in the universe?
Isn't it equally possible that We may not be good enough to perceive more superior creatures?

I don't think it's a question of 'good' and it depends what you mean by 'superior'. IF there are/have been/will be more 'superior' beings some where/when/how, being able to perceive them MAY or may not use other senses than we use/have. To a certain extent it depends on what you actually mean by your question.

YAYYYYYYYYY! Welcome back Gaia...!!! Welcome to you too Nature Boy!

 I agree with Gaia... You do need to be more specific with your question.

 By Good enough do you really mean intellectual enough to know that there is a superior life form or just intellectually comfortable enough to admit it, and accept it?

To give a generalisational (new word) answer to nature Boy...I think it's really unlikely that we are the most superior creatures and yes I agree that we may not be superior enough to be able to detect other lifeforms which are either out of our capability to detect , because of the nature of their existence.......or that they utilize a cloaking technology that we can not see !..in that it works very well !!.

The thing about the Universe..is that it's...well....it's well big.......even bigger that the local train station car park and that can hold  about 500 cars  !!

You made me think about it when you said,

 "The thing about the Universe..is that it's...well....it's well big.......even bigger that the local train station car park and that can hold  about 500 cars  !!"

I just thought it might be good food for thought right about then... LOL
