Brian Cox Explains Why We Haven't Seen Aliens Yet – And It Is Pretty Terrifying

Famous physicist Prof. Brian Cox has made an entry in one of astronomy's most inquisitive and vital questions: Given the high possibility of intelligent alien life prevailing in the ceaselessly massive universe, why haven't we discovered any clear indication of it?






This question is very old and it was Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, who put forward this question in the 1950s, in what’s now known as the Fermi paradox. He debated there’s inconsistency between the high possibility of alien life existing and the total absence of hard indication that intelligent life has ever developed outside of Earth.

So he famously asked:
 “Where is everybody?”
So, Professor Cox considers that he might finally have the answer. But you will probably not like it.

According to the article published on Sunday Times, Professor Brian Cox said:
“One solution to the Fermi paradox is that it is not possible to run a world that has the power to destroy itself and that needs global collaborative solutions to prevent that.” 
Yup, basically there's a strong possibility aliens wipe themselves out via political chaos before they ever become advanced enough to start an interstellar exploration.

He went on to warn:
“It may be that the growth of science and engineering inevitably outstrips the development of political expertise, leading to disaster. We could be approaching that position.”

  1. Brian Cox is correct. Most planetary civilizations will destroy themselves with Natures toys before they ever progress to explore other worlds, much less, the Stars.
    Speaking for myself. We frankly find Earthlings to be hateful and dangerous. Too involved in Global control and have no real imagination.
    If you can't take care of a world that has the envy of the rest of the cosmos, why oh why would you thinkk that we would allow you cock-roaches to invade another pristine World and destroy it as you are destined to destroy the only home you have. Earth. Jewel of the Universe and totaaally undeserving of what you have done to it.

  2. We are explaining the morality of the universe through our own "moral" lenses. If every world evolved exactly like Earth, then I would expect the entire universe to have Earth's moral paradigms and outcomes. However, i really think the universe is more "morally" diverse than that.
