What if the galaxy is filled with other intelligent life, and they know all about Earth, but it is quarantined until we straighten ourselves out?

  1. “Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.”

    – Calvin (*Calvin and Hobbes*)

  2. What if we are alone and our world with all its flaws and bullshit represents the best that this universe can ever hope to produce? Big yikes.

  3. What if they were here once, contracted a deadly virus which they took back home — the virus almost wiped their whole race. Thus the quarantine…

  4. That’s definitely a possibility. That means we’re just like those indigenous people form pacific I think that attacked other people when they got close to their island

  5. Given that the Milky Way Galaxy is 100,000ish lightyears across, other intelligent life would likely see Earth as it was thousands of years ago instead of as it is today because information takes time to travel. Therefore, most of these civilizations would see hunter/gather tribes who hadn’t even invented the wheel. Considering this, we would need to straighten out and then wait thousands to tens of thousands of years before they even realized we straightened ourselves out.

  6. This actually makes tons of sense look at the n sentinel islanders math mathematically is supdr low we are alone the vast distance is the most likley culprit but theres many suggestions for the fermi paradox

  7. I have always felt that aliens won’t let us know they are here because they see how we(humans) treat each other, why would they subject themselves to us?

  8. I think Noah was an alien space traveler his ship was called the ark. All the species of life that are on our planet. Originally came from all the other planets as they died out. Noah would pick them up and bring them to the only inhabitable planet left in all the known universes. That’s why we see alien craft from time to time. It’s Noah checking on us and dropping off a new species. Pass me another doobie.
