THE FERMI PARADOX
Where are they ?
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Where are they ?

There's been hundreds of thousands of spacecraft sightings just in recent times, and the recorded history of older cultures provides hundreds, if not thousands, more. Many speak in no uncertain terms about visitors from other planets, like the Dogon tribe and their visitors from Sirius B.
All those people know we're being visited by them, and so do the governments of the world, because they've psychologically conditioned everyone to think something so plausible is ridiculous. The only people who don't are those who look to the media for what to believe.

My take on this is this. If the human race is to survive in the future we must and I mean must occupy other planetary systems. That is it we just must.
Why have we not heard them? Simply the speed of light is too slow. If a race of hi tech beings occupy two star systems they have found a quicker means of communication.

I do believe there is other life out there. If you look at all the life that has existed on earth. Only one has become intelligent enough to begin to fathom the idea of talking to other intelligent beings.
That does not play well for there being lots of intelligent life out there.
Life may indeed be abundant in the universe but intelligent life may be an aberration.

Great work tauristercus.
Here is my own poorly formed
andwer to the Fermi paradox and aliens.
(12) Due to the limitations of light speed the only
way aliens can visit us is to beam energy signatures
to our planet. Which they have done for thousands of
years, even millions. They are called plants. In the future
when we can do it, we will be able to experience other planets
as plants ourselves. The problem is that we don't treat our
visitors very well and the word has gotten out about us.
So even our very close cousins won't come visit us
in person. "All they do is eat or burn us."
Can't blame them really.
