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

  • Published on: 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.

    We only think aliens would destroy us if they could, because we would do it to them if we are the ones who are ahead

    OMG so many gaming and anime and pop culture references in their videos. Fucking love it. I saw FTL, MASS EFFECT, Dragonball Z, Pokémon, so many. And probably others I didn’t recognize at first

    What if we're actually encased in a simulation now and our 'creators' forgot that their 'machine' is still running?

    Not hearing much in the way of solutions or ideas, just reasons why humans are destined to fail because we're not technologically advanced enough.

    Here is one for you, our leaders in the 60s met with intelligent life and they offered us immortality and peace and the politicians said no thank you and they left. Making a decision for all of us because they are greedy selfish assholes. Enough is enough with those people. They dont care about us at all and we need to wake up.

    I think the secret to breaking the great filter is a collective consciousness, imagine that a few galaxies next door that there's sentient animal/plant/fungus creatures living in vast symbiotic colonies across star-systems. Another galaxy has sentient hive-minds of swarming insects similar to The Zerg from StarCraft or Tyranids from Warhammer 40k.

    You could be distroyed or you can evolve there is no choice. Humanity as a whole is at a crossroads. As for the aliens y'all wouldnt know but they down here with you. Some got here through time travle some through what I call planet hopping. I myself prefer planet hopping. So many lives so, many light years and most of all so much knolage.

    Note that an advanced civilization can also rearrange and or make multiple sun's and place in an array with a storage setup at a distance and colonize all around that area virtually extinction for such a civilization is highly unlikely

    What if alien life is much smarter than us and have been looking at us for a while now! They do not consider us worthy to visit or introduce themselves to us! Look at what other animals would think of us! We're openly destroying our planet and their homes as well as families! We even destroy ourselves over B.S. which actually isn't worth too much! Why would alien life consider us peaceful if it seems like destruction is all we want!
