Interesting read. What's your opinion?

I think it's possible that it's both. Maybe not "The Great Filter," but I don't see why there can't be multiple filters that kill 99.9% of life each time they are approached.

I always think that is weird too. Life could develop anywhere. Why does it have to have water and moderate temperatures?

It would be cool to make a poll of every single scenario including God Put Us Here and see how CP would vote.

Its a trap. We lure them here, beat them up, and take their stuff.

It is impossible to know everything there is to know. If you wanted to store all the information on all the galaxies out there-it would take a super computer-so big and so heavy-it would actually sink down into the fabric of space and create a black hole. This black hole would be so huge it would suck everything into it and stretch it into particles. Thus making it impossible to harness all the knowledge out there.

Tell that to Stephen Hawking.

And really it is not. Some of the computers trying to do Quantum Physics calculations could fill a mall. Look how big the computers use to be a few decades ago- and that was just to balance your checkbook. When you are talking about problems involving numbers that will circle the earth 100,000 times-you are talking about giant computers- now times that by the entire knowledge in All universes. Impossible.

A point made by Cosmos in a recent episode is that we're not only dealing with a challenge of space, but also of time. In other words, the math says that there should be a ton of other planets with life on them, but what's to say that life hasn't already come and gone on most of them? If it turns out that there just isn't a way to go faster than the speed of light, it's entirely plausible that we just won't have anyone else close enough and at the right point in time to find anything out there.

yea we should probably stop doing that
Even if we did-the signals we sent are still going. We will probably blow ourselves up before it reaches another species that would want to come investigate the origin.

Wormholes? These would actually bend the fabric of the universe-thus suspending time would it not?

I wish we (as a species) would put as much effort into exploring beyond Earth as we do trying to be as rich and powerful as possible.
