If we don't find aliens in the next few hundred years, then is that proof that we live in a simulation?
If the Fermi Paradox persists into the intermediate future, that in the entire unfathomable universe there is no other intelligent life in it, then is that proof that we're living in a video game, and we're the only players?

Ronald 7 say: You can count me in
You are a Slave of my Keyboard

Elaine say: Even though Proxima Centauri is about 5 light years away do you have any idea of how long it would take to travel there or what the actual distance in Km is?. Then think about stars like Rigel, Deneb which are further away. It has taken both Voyagers 1/2 a human lifetime to reach the Kuiper Belt. Then you have to consider the number of stars which could have planets that sustain life and narrow that number down to those which have technological civilisations than enable interstellar travel. The chances of finding aliens or them finding us are pretty remote.
As for wormholes the math suggests that they are temporary, not permanent structures. Even if we develop a warp drive it would be essentially a one way trip for both the terrestrial and alien the astronauts as thousands of years would have passed on the home planet.
If we are living in a simulation there is no way that we can prove it since the proof requires that we step outside the simulation. This is similar to the characters in video games. They don't know they live in a simulation. .

John say: It's like people just don't even GO to school anymore.....
-
thomas f say: I think the proof of whether we are living in a computer simulation will come only if we choose to take the red pill, rather than the blue pill.
-
Clive say: Don't be silly.
-
Starrysky say: Drake equation may be very optimistic even with very damaging numbers inserted.
Finding signals from another civilization more than a few thousand light years distant might be very difficult.
No visitors here ever may be just the hard task to transport anything physical over light years. Even Carl Sagan told me face to face in 1976 that he did not believe humans would ever go to another star system--just too darned far. He said radio messages were the only possible contact.
-
Jeffrey K say: Certainly not!
Space is big. There could be lots of planets with aliens but we might not find any for millions of years.
And even if earth is the only planet with life, why would that be evidence of a simulation? Maybe life is so unlikely to start from non living molecules that it only happened once in the whole universe. That is definitely possible.
-
rustbucket say: As long as there are people that believe there are aliens there will be aliens whether there are any or not.
-
choko_canyon say: No, but it might be proof that you need to work on your critical thinking skills.
-
G. Whilikers say: A simulation could easily incorporate aliens into the illusion. So a lack of alien contact means nothing either way.
-
Who say: No

And Fermi's paradox is only a paradox cos it ignores a number of significant limitations on its basic arguments
-
Celia say: I wont know cuz will b dead by then
-
say: thats a movie theme, not a sound theory
-
Tom say: Check out "holographic Universe Theory."---Not a simulation, but the odd way reality is set up.
-
Poseidon say: Maybe you are living in a simulation but I sure as heck am not.
-
Elyse Rose say: It means Lay off the Vodka.

Nah. It just means they're pretty hard to find. And, really - time-wise, we've only just *begun* to look.

>>If the Fermi Paradox persists into the intermediate future, that in the entire

Maybe. But, it *could* mean we're just the only creatures around able to ponder about their own existence - and, we're actually flesh & bone.

az_lender say: Technological civilizations may tend to exhaust the resources of their home planets rather quickly (in geologic time), so it could be that many civilizations have existed, but the chance that two of them will come into contact might be vanishingly small, as the signals from one civilization may not reach the planet of another civilization during the time when that second civilization is able to receive and interpret them.

-
Damien say: no, we wont find aliens cause we dont have the capability to travel long distances in space, we havent even sent a human to mars,the closest planet, forget the rest of the universe
-
PhotonX say: No. Don't you think beings capable of programming an entire universe would be capable of writing a few aliens into the script?

CarolOklaNola say: No. Tell that to your self the next time you stub your toe. Or cut yourself shaving. You are just a simulation and don't really exist.
-
skeptik say: How would it be that?
