The Fermi Paradox — Where Are All The Aliens?

Post by chelle » Tue May 26, 2015 9:36 am

Here's a cool video explaining the Fermi Paradox, one idea fit's right in with very smart people doing something stupid:

I've heard of that and I'm not worried, I have a theory, they can't understand any of our languages

You have a theory from Bill Nye, well he's a sales guy selling 'science' and of course telling us to invest more in science and space exploration ... there's nothing wrong with that, who knows?!

I as a preacher of doom, I myself, I have to sell my product, and tell that we're in some sort of computer simulation and all the other planets civilisations failed at this level as mentioned in the video link I posted, ending up in a Supernova, and that it's up to us to be clever enough to survive this stage and pass the Donkey Kong that the LHC is. Probably there are even some more difficult levels after this one ... tricky stuff. :mrgreen:

At least that's one of the things that motivates me to finish the theory that I'm working on, hope to finish it soon because time is ticking, oh! oh!

So you guys have the same theory, is that it ... or is yours slightly different, who's first? What, where have you written about it? I presume you are probably also too lazy for writing it out ... and what is your purpose of hanging around here?

It was my theory first, after I watched the video link you provided, it was interesting

... and what drives you to hang around on an LHC forum?
