Why haven't we heard from aliens or found any evidence of their existence? That question is known as
The Fermi Paradox. Assume other life. ... Why no contact? So please give your opinion. Maybe we already had contact but .... ????
Even if we assume aliens exist (a big assumption in itself), several other factors remain regarding interactions with them:
1) Are they close enough to receive transmissions we send anytime soon? If not, it could take millions of years to hear back.
2) Are they technologically advanced enough to reply?
3) Could they understand/decipher our message? Are they even intelligent enough to do so?
4) Even if they could, would they want to contact us? Heck, are we sure we'd want to them?
5) If we received communications, would our government let us know?
Basically, even if they're out there, many obstacles (physical and psychological) could prevent communications.
All those Q's and more are addressed at this link - http://www.businessinsider.com/climate- … ens-2017-7
"The mass extinction we are now living through has only just begun; so much more dying is coming."
Yes, it addresses some, and basically says similar things: there may be a "Great Filter" of sorts preventing communication with potentially intelligent life. Definitely an interesting subject.
I use to follow as best as I could alien life stuff. But, that was long before the internet, so was limited to books I read and magazines. Of course a lot of it was the thinking in the context of Area 51 and similar tales. And, I was enthralled with some movies like Close Encounters of the Third Kind while getting a kick out of E.T. I think the movie that got me thinking beyond the typical perception of aliens from out there was K-Pax. That opened wide doors to my imagination that maybe visitors do not appear in humanoid form, but is closer to an essence. Mind boggling to me.
Maybe because it touches on thoughts of concepts of Angels. Thus, is an Angel an alien being. They are normally referred to as celestial beings, but extraterrestrial life is also considered a celestial being. There has been a lot written about Angels and their interactions as humanoid form with humans as seen with the Bible. BTW . . . is a person transported through time from the future an alien being?
Intrigued I looked into the Fermi Paradox. There is an extensive article at Wiki I perused and I viewed a short article at the SETI Institute. Seems the paradox is based on probability taking into the context the number of stars (Suns) in the universe while the Milky Way galaxy is a starting point and them having planets similar to earth. It was contested saying the logic was wrong, therefore there is no probability of life. Seems that would support the creationist point of view. Anyway, we have a difference that relies on belief of correctness. IMHO, we are left with beliefs we have as an individual being just as valid. So, perhaps evidence is not needed as it is based on faith and trust one develops with a belief. I dun'no . . .
The question I wonder about is why would a civilization capable of interplanetary exploration have more than a passing interest in us,like a variation of an ant colony?We're not even a level 'one' civilization yet;They would have to be at least a level 'three' to have achieved space travel in terms of light years.
Another point is the tendency for technology to spread through out a civilization from field to field.If they had the technology to cross light years of space,they wouldn't still be using 'space ships' to do it...that would be akin to us going from LA to New York in a covered wagon...
'They' May have dropped by...'They' May be here...but if 'They' are,you can bet 'They' are Bored as hell...
