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.

    The easiest and most optimistic solution to the Fermi paradox is that we're either the first or one of the first. In comparison to the projected lifespan of the universe in regards to star and planet formation, it's just getting started

    I think you just answered your own question in the last video. "What is the Great Filter? Is it behind us, or in front of us?" I think the great filter is the Matrioshka Brain, or basically the plot of "Ready Player One". There are aliens, but they don't have the motivation to discover us because they have their "eternal" computer pleasure. That's what our filter is: we ain't going to want to do anything else when we get that "Ready Player One" technology, & we're going to die out.

    What if we are the one sent by the aliens, dismantling every resources imaginable, until life on earth is impossible and jump to another livable planet only to repeat the process?

    What if our intelligence is so low that no matter what we do, our species is not made for something bigger, what if the universe as we know it is not even close to the REAL universe, we just can't see it because our species is not advanced enough, i mean what about dark matter? too much thinking staaahp

    2:03 I actually think it's more likely that our communications technology is ahead of the curve compared to other species that might have evolved; I doubt that other sapient beings are as emo and codependent as us. We almost certainly won't turn out to be the strongest, smartest, weakest, or stupidest creatures in the universe, but we might very well turn out to be the most talkative.
