    Taylor then gets a little spacey in Thursday's message, speculating about the possibility that other distant worlds in the cosmos might support life.

    The 68-year-old musician, who lives in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, ends by saying: "To have been born in human form and consciousness aboard this unbelievably beneficent planet is an incredible stroke of luck. Dig it."
