This is something I have wondered for some time. What is the solution to Fermi’s Paradox? In case you don’t know, this is the seeming paradox that there are probably other advanced alien extraterrestrial races. But none of them have tried to contact us thus far.
Actually, I must insert my opinion as I start this discussion. I contend that considering how much older some planets are than ours (I think some of them are billions of years older than us), clearly some of the more advanced ones have to be at least aware of us. So why don’t they contact us? So I guess my question is two-part then.
BTW, I am familiar with the Wikipedia article on Fermi’s Paradox. But I am looking for some fresh ideas here perhaps not included in the Wiki article. (But if you must bring up the Wiki article, may I start by saying I find the “Zoo Hypothesis” very interesting–although it doesn’t make much sense to me really .)
Thank you in advance to all who reply:)
