32 - Fermi Paradox – Why Have We Not Been Contacted?

The “Fermi Paradox” questions why we have not observed extraterrestrial life given the immense scale of the universe.

-

Put in other words, there is an estimated TWO TRILLION galaxies in the observable universe (this is a “fuck load”). We know life emerged in one galaxy (here on Earth in our Milky Way galaxy). Given this outcome, there is likely a high probability of other intelligent life, if we adhere to the mediocrity principle.

-

Scientists, including Carl Sagan and Frank Drake speculated the Milky Way has between one thousand to one-hundred MILLION civilizations given probable habitable zones. Why have we not been contacted then?

-

Herein we outline the Fermi Paradox and relevant principles or solutions including the mediocrity principle, the zoo hypothesis, the Drake equation, the Transcension Hypothesis, empirical evidence, and other wild shit.
