This thread could be separated into two separate threads. One about websites and another about space aliens in the off-topic section. I absolutely believe there are many civilizations in the universe, even many in our own galaxy. Why haven’t we had official contact with any ETs? How to resolve Fermi’s paradox? That’s easy because all advanced civilizations will have reached and gone beyond a technological singularity. And this means artificial intelligence with godlike powers. Type IV civilizations on the Kardashev scale. And the extremely advanced AI makes sure “young” civilizations like our own can develop on our own until we have become mature enough to make official ET contact. It’s a kind of fully effective “prime directive” enforced by the AI for all civilizations.
Interesting and I agree with a lot of what you say. My questions would focus around feasibility of time-travel, manipulating worm-holes etc and to what extent we can think of these things as “doable”. I totally agree that there is a good chance other civilisations exist, other life forms cetainly. My objections enter into the picture when a “belief system” is created with no evidence for it, yet is linked to science in a dishonest way - pseudo science - not the existence of aliens. I would like to have this discussion in off-topic, so will start a thread. Cheers
