Default The Fermi Paradox

The thread about UFO sightings reminded me of something I stumbled across on the internet a few months ago...

Kind of long, but worth the read. There are a lot of fascinating points and ideas here.

Some people stick with the traditional, feeling struck by the epic beauty or blown away by the insane scale of the universe. Personally, I go for the old “existential meltdown followed by acting weird for the next half hour.” But everyone feels something.

Physicist Enrico Fermi felt something too—”Where is everybody?”
