Enrico Fermi, who built the first nuclear reactor called the Nuclear Age Engineer in a lunch conversation in 1950, posed a question that led to decades of research and hundreds of research journals. “Where is everybody?”
Fermi’s paradox, now called Fermi’s paradox, raises the question: If the universe is sufficiently large to carry enough space to create life other than that on earth, why have not we seen the space creatures yet?
Scientists like Andrew Sandberg, a neuroscientist at Oxford University and the world’s scientist, Milan Cherkowitz of the Belgrade Astronomical Observatory, used the question as their starting point in trying to refute or defend the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations.
Sandberg and Cherkowitz met with Stuart Armstrong, an artificial intelligence expert at the Institute for the Future of Humanity, to write a new paper claiming that space life is dormant. The “hibernation hypothesis” is based on two assumptions: the transformation of developed societies into machine-based life; These machines work faster in colder conditions, so scientists believe that space creatures will emerge from their dormancy when the universe cools, as they will be able to develop at a faster rate.
Sandberg and Cherkowitz explained the hypothesis on their blog, “As a result of the expansion of the universe, the background temperature will drop at an exponential rate.” In general, calculations will be 10 times more efficient if your computer is 10 times colder. So space creatures will emerge from the slumber when the universe Cool.
The two worlds came up with the most likely solution when discussing how to prolong the life of civilizations. The theory was formed after the assays of achromism on the best of civilization, and was not based on Fermi’s question, but added a possible new answer to the question.
Other possible solutions
Fermi’s contradictory solutions are divided into three categories:
The first category; that we are alone and that there is no space life, due to the fact that space creatures have not evolved from the ground or died in an earlier era.
Aditya Chopra of the Australian National University has reached a convincing interpretation of extinction called the “bottleneck of Guyana”, suggesting the fragility of space life as it evolves and that only mankind has demonstrated its ability to survive through the great candidate challenges facing life as it evolves, «Robin Hanson»
The second category is that space creatures are present, but they are not present on Earth because of the inability of human absorption or the limited means of communication and techniques that humans have reached. Michiu Kaku explains this in an interview with The Daily Grill using similarities between ants and the highway, :
Suppose there is an ant village in the middle of the forest, and a 10-lane freeway is set up right next to it. The question is, will the ants understand what the 10-lane highway means?
Category III; space creatures exist but do not interact with humans clearly, and the blame here is not on humanity in the weakness of its connection with space creatures, but on creatures that are vague.
The hibernation hypothesis falls within this classification, which may also explain the puzzling light fluctuations of the star KIC 8462852, which some attributed to the interference of space creatures.
Whatever the explanation, if any, the answer to the question remains surprising, and may be the next question that most people think; What happens when we meet ALIENS ???
