The Fermi Paradox II — Solutions and Ideas – Where Are All The Aliens?

  • Published: 04 June 2015
  • Where are all the aliens? The universe is too big and too old, why have we not met aliens yet? Do they live in computers? Were they wiped out by an ancient super intelligence? Or are we just to primitive to understand their motives? Whatever the answer is, it is incredibly important for our own future.

    First Fermi Video:

    What is life:

    Videos, explaining things. Like evolution, time, space, global energy or our existence in this strange universe.
    We are a team of designers, journalists and musicians who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

    To Type 3 Aliens we just went from flinging our feces at eachother to tweeting them instead.
    Type 2 Aliens would be baffled at what speed we done it.

    Seriously, we went from the first flight through the sky to landing on the moon in just half a century or so.
    The medical advancements of the last 2 centuries helped us to the point we are our own biggest disease.

    I don't think humans are capable of eradicating all life on earth, unless we really try with that intention. Life has evolved and survived much worse than humans. Our sentience allows us to redirect the great dying of our making. Again only if we intent to.

    In the end nothing matters, everything is finite. The only difference we can make is for how long we allow this and future generations to enjoy the universe.

                                                          I think we've been discovered and killing us off was a very controversial subject. And many other things, such as introducing themselves were also controversial. And so the aliens are just waiting for us to reach their level of intelligence to reveal themselves. Today there could be aliens in hiding studying our customs so when we reach their level they will do 1 of 2 things. 1 they treat us all equal and many species live together, unfortunately crimes are still a thing but for the most part we live and treat eachother as the same. 2 humans are treated as lower levels due to our late start.

                                                          I don't include them killing us off because if they wanted to they would've done it already.

                                                          Or we are the only life out there or we haven't been discovered this. That works too

All I see are you slaughtering each other, mostly for a temporary financial gain. - as if that means anything, as ahort a lives as you have. You are a primattive, paroquial species at best, and the rest of us just make bets on how you will destroy yourselves.Your brains seem unable to see The Bigger Picture. Some of you still have gods to explain what you can't understand rather than accept the reality of this glorious universe in which you live. It's always the same for such egocentric peoples as yourselves. But still, some of you reach for the stars (metaphorically at least, so that's a positive, it is supposed). Enjoy your day in the sun, it's all you have - and it never lasts long o willcome again.

We think since there are billions of planets like our own out there there must be life or say even there "could be", but it could all be a bias from looking at ourselves and projecting, thinking they must be how we imagine them. It could just as easily be nothing out there :(
