00:00
there are probably 10,000 stars for
00:02
every grain of sand on earth in the
00:04
observable universe we know that there
00:06
might be trillions of planets so where
00:08
are all the aliens this is the family
00:11
paradox if you want to know more about
00:13
it watch part 1 here we look at possible
00:16
solutions to the Fermi paradox so will
00:20
we be destroyed or does a glorious
00:22
future await us space travel is hard
00:31
although possible it’s an enormous
00:33
challenge to travel to other stars
00:35
massive amounts of material have to be
00:37
put into orbit and assembled the journey
00:40
of maybe thousands of years needs to be
00:42
survived by a population big enough to
00:45
start from scratch and the planet might
00:47
not be as hospitable as it seemed from
00:49
afar it was already extremely hard to
00:52
set up a spaceship that could survive
00:54
the trip an interstellar invasion might
00:56
be impossible to put off also consider
01:00
time the universe is very old on earth
01:02
there’s been life at least 3.6 billion
01:05
years intelligent human life for about
01:09
250,000 years but only for about a
01:11
century have we had the technology to
01:13
communicate over great distances there
01:16
might have been grand alien empires that
01:18
stretched across thousands of systems
01:20
and existed for millions of years
01:23
and we might just have missed them there
01:25
might be grandiose ruins rotting away on
01:28
distant worlds 99% of all species on
01:32
earth have died out it’s easy to argue
01:34
that this will be our fate sooner or
01:36
later intelligent life may develop
01:39
spread over a few systems and die off
01:42
over and over again but the Galactic
01:45
Civilizations might never meet so maybe
01:48
it’s a unifying experience for life in
01:50
the universe to look at the Stars and
01:52
wonder where is everyone but there is no
01:55
reason to assume aliens are like us or
01:57
that our logic applies to them it might
02:01
just be that our means of communication
02:02
are extremely primitive and outdated
02:05
imagine sitting in a house with a Morse
02:07
code
02:08
you’d keep sending messages but nobody
02:11
would answer and you’d feel pretty
02:13
lonely maybe we’re still undetectable
02:16
for intelligent species and will remain
02:18
so until we learn to communicate
02:20
properly and even if we met aliens we
02:23
might be too different to be able to
02:25
communicate with them in a meaningful
02:27
way
02:27
imagine the smartest squirrel you can no
02:30
matter how hard you try you won’t be
02:32
able to explain our society to it after
02:35
all from the squirrels perspective a
02:37
tree is all that a sophisticated
02:39
intelligence like itself needs to
02:42
survive so humans cutting down whole
02:45
forests is madness but we don’t destroy
02:48
forests because we hate squirrels we
02:50
just want the resources the squirrels
02:52
wishes and the squirrel survival are of
02:54
no concern to us a type 3 civilization
02:57
in need of resources may treat us in a
03:00
similar way they might just evaporate
03:02
our oceans to make collecting whatever
03:04
they need easier one of the aliens might
03:06
think for a second
03:07
boom tiny little Apes they build really
03:09
cute concrete structures oh well now
03:12
they’re dead before activating warp
03:14
speed but if there is a civilization out
03:17
there that wants to eliminate other
03:18
species it’s far more likely that it
03:20
will be motivated by culture rather than
03:22
by economics and anyway it will be more
03:25
effective to automate the process by
03:27
constructing the perfect weapon a
03:29
self-replicating space probe made from
03:31
nano machines they operate on a
03:33
molecular level incredibly fast and
03:35
deadly with the power to attack and
03:37
dismantle anything in an instant you
03:40
only need to give them four instructions
03:43
one find a planet with life to
03:45
disassemble everything on this planet
03:47
into its component parts 3 use the
03:50
resources to build new space probes 4
03:53
repeat a doomsday machine like this
03:55
could render a galaxy sterile in a few
03:58
million years but why would you fly
04:00
light-years to gather resources or
04:01
commit genocide the speed of light is
04:04
actually not very fast
04:05
if someone could
04:06
travel at the speed of light it would
04:08
still take 100,000 years to cross the
04:10
Milky Way once and you’ll probably
04:12
travel way slower there might be way
04:14
more enjoyable things than destroying
04:16
civilizations and building empires an
04:19
interesting concept is the matryoshka
04:21
brain a mega structure surrounding a
04:23
star a computer of such computing power
04:26
that an entire species could upload
04:29
their consciousness and exist in a
04:31
simulated universe potentially one could
04:33
experience an eternity of pure ecstasy’s
04:36
without ever being bored or sad a
04:38
perfect life if built around at Red
04:41
Dwarf this computer could be powered for
04:43
up to 10 trillion years who would want
04:45
to conquer the galaxy or make contact
04:47
with other life-forms if this were an
04:49
option all these solutions to the Fermi
04:51
paradox have one problem we don’t know
04:54
where the borders of technology are we
04:57
could be close to the limit or nowhere
04:59
near it and super technology awaits us
05:02
granting us immortality transporting us
05:04
to other galaxies elevating us to the
05:07
level of God’s one thing we do have to
05:09
acknowledge is that we really don’t know
05:11
anything
05:12
shirin’s have spent more than 90% of
05:15
their existence as hunter-gatherers 500
05:17
years ago we thought we were the center
05:19
of the universe
05:20
200 years ago we’ve stopped using human
05:22
neighbor as the main source of energy 30
05:25
years ago we had apocalyptic weapons
05:27
pointed at each other because of
05:28
political disagreements in the Galactic
05:30
time scale we are embryos we’ve come far
05:33
but still have a long way to go the
05:36
mindset that we ready are the center of
05:38
the universe is still strong in humans
05:40
so it’s easy to make arrogant
05:42
assumptions about life in the universe
05:44
but in the end there’s only
05:46
one way to find out right
05:51
hey everybody we finally have our own
05:54
subreddit come by for surveys
05:56
discussions about future videos fa Q’s
05:59
and stuff like that this video was made
06:03
possible by your support on patreon if
06:05
you want us to make more videos and
06:07
maybe get your own bird avatar in return
