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.

    If you think about it, if there is intelligent life out there, its billions of light years away. Humans have developed completely separate from this species and vice versa. So what if they developed another way of communication? What if they used something else other than radio waves? We havent discovered this new way of communication and they havent discovered radio waves. We would have no way of detecting each other

    Short answer: Aliens don't visit us because they fear us, we're a super deadly alien species that breathes a toxic gas and drinks one of the most potent solvents, and we're extremely durable, we can break multiple bones and can lose half of our blood, not to mention we would be seen as a very violent species with a warrior culture.

    If you travel back in time and tell Jesus that you are God, he’ll tell everyone that God spoke to him. But it was really you who spoke to him, not God. He won’t know that, though, and neither will anyone else. So, by traveling back and telling Jesus that you were God, you effectively become the God that everyone knows and comes to worship. Has nothing to do with the video but I jus thought of it and wanted to post lol

    i think "time" is very limited area because look at us we are just improved our technology last century years. and very close the destroy our selves. who knows in the future which possiblities block us to our evolotion, intelligence is very dangerous thing when its not enough.
