It's harder still to even comprehend how little we know and the biases in the way we can percieve the world, because such biases and limited understanding block us from comprehending it. Strange stuff. I like being an animal too. Maybe us animals will see something in our lifetimes.>>8990
Ah yes, the Fermi Paradox. I was actually thinking about that when I made this thread. I think we mostly haven't seen them because space is gigantic, bigger than we can know. It stretches on limitless. Intelligenet life could be hundreds or thousands or millions of light years away, and we may never be able to see them.
It does seem fairly unlikely they would've found us if we haven't found them yet, but there's a lot we don't know. What trips me out is that the aliens could be a kind of lifeform we don't see in our realm of what is seeable, so they would be technically invisible to us. Groovy and spooky, frankly.
