Re: Whee are the aliens?

The Fermi Paradox expects alien life to contact us or that we discover it.. as i already said what if the Aliens just don't want to contact us for whatever reason (we know also nothing about alien psychology so it's useless to apply our psychology and in extension our feeling of curiosity to aliens) and given the vast space and our limited technology we just may missed it or didn't discover it yet.

We discover planets by mathematical methods and we draw conclusions based on the data we receive. If aliens do the same and looked at our system all they would be able to deduct (given the same methods) is the number of planets and that one or two of them are in the habitable zone.. one might actually carry water.

That's all so the Fermi Paradox, as interesting as it is, is really a flawed assumption.
