@prophet_goddess see i disagree in that i think it takes a massive degree of social cohesion and technological advancement to master interstellar travel and why would such an advanced society be like "hey theres a planet full of dumbass paranoid screeching apes over there lets check it out lmao"
@dankwraith oh no what I mean by that is definitely nobody has developed interstellar travel
@prophet_goddess oh. plausible
@dankwraith the way I see it the resolution to the Fermi paradox is that either everyone is precisely as stupid as we are, discovers the awesome power of hydrocarbons, then promptly destroys itself via global warming, or that intelligent life has a rarity of one per galaxy
