Brian Cox’s Explanation For WHY We Haven’t Seen Aliens Yet Is Frightening

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s a popular question: why haven’t intelligent other-world lifeforms (aka aliens) made contact with people of Earth if, statistically, they more than likely exist? Well, an answer has been presented by physicist Brian Cox, but it’s not one you were probably expecting…

When the physicist was asked to elaborate on the Fermi paradox – the contradiction between the high probability of alien life existing and the total lack of hard evidence that intelligence life has ever evolved outside of Earth, he 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.”

Essentially, he’s saying that there’s a chance intelligent off world life wipes itself out via political turmoil before the possibility of interstellar exploration is realized.

“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,” Cox continued.

It seems the best chance of meeting extraterrestrial species may be in bacterial or microbial life forms. According to Futurism, it’s possible that we’re incredibly close to discovering single-celled organisms hiding in nearby planets – such as Saturn’s moon Dione and Proxima b, located in a nearby galaxy.
And, if certain content in recent WikiLeaks proves to be true, it’s possible extraterrestrial species have already made contact with humans on Earth, but the masses remain ignorant of it.

      If anybody believes this you are idiot. So-called Alien life and contact was established long a go by Nikola Testla. The first being contacted lived on Venus, yes Venus. In-fact all the planets in our Solar system have intelligent life living on them. I don’t mean just bacteria, I mean advance life who apparently have been here long before us. In addition, this so-called Alien life exist right here on this planet. Go read about Admiral Byrd and his expedition to the Arctic. In-fact alien offered all of us, advance technology cure to all diseases and ever lasting life, only to have our government turn that down. Just like Nikola Testla offer, of free energy from the ether all turned down. This would have created a society of really free people, free to leave this planet and go anywhere of our choosing, but why have that, they wanted slaves they could control. So, they gave their version of science and basically brain wash scientist in what to believe and what not to believe. Thus, keeping us from ever leaving this planet because the science they offer us, says we can never travel faster than the speed of light. No warp energy of space time warping etc. so space travel away from earth would seem impossible. There have been many civilizations (including the giants) who have all lived here and disappeared, we are just another set. But if we could open our eyes to the deception, maybe we can break the cycle.

        It doesn’t hurt to step away from ones self on occasion and re examine our perspectives. After all most of what we think is based on what some one else published or said. Even an event involving you personally could be characterized by another differently. It’s smart to base the building blocks and foundation of your philosophy in life based on your own personal involvement and experience. Anything else is fluid, a moving target so to speak and the wise learn not to bet their credibility on a target that was here today and could just as easily be gone tomorrow.

          … even though we are only able to see 2% of the entire light spectrum, hear a minuscule amount of sound vibration range, and smell 1/200th of what our dogs can smell? If you base everything you believe on the direct experience of your severally crippled bio-organism, you are literally missing the entire elephant. Everything else is not “fluid,” it’s just beyond our capabilities… and this whole article is complete nonsense, BTW.

        At this point, if anyone is still wondering if there’s other intelligent life out there or if they are already here/been here in the past it’s too late for them. they should just stay asleep and not even bother waking up to any of this. it really says a lot abut humanity as a whole that there are still so many aggressively denying anything outside their programmed belief systems. It’s like watching a movie. A very bad one. Wondering what the hell is wrong with some people. Wondering why the hell anyone is still getting vaccines. Is it not strange that vaccine safety has become such a politically correct topic? You’re supposed to respect other’s beliefs and not talk about being anti vax to a pro vax mom? Vaccine safety is not a “belief.” Should not be considered to be offensive when people are just stating facts that have been proven time and time again. I have had so many of my friends/family get upset with me when I tell them not to let anyone stick them or their children with another needle as it will probably forever alter their DNA. People get upset when you warn them and try to stop them from poisoning themselves? This really is the zombie apocalypse. It’s like you can see your friends/family standing on a train track and they do not see the train that’s coming at them full speed ahead. Are we supposed to not warn them in case they get offended? I mean really this is what it boils down to. I have withdrawn from society because I just cannot tolerate anymore bullshit or being around a bunch of people who pretend nothing is going on and live in ignorant bliss. I can’t stomach to be in the matrix anymore. I want out NOW!

          Good comment and i think most of us feel exactly the same as you do. What we have to know though is that we are all one, we are all connected and the power of our minds is such that we can change everything with a little co-operation from those of us who are awake. Just like Jesus said, when one or more are gathered together, there i will be also.
          We only have to ‘intend’ for what we want. Do this everyday, say ‘i intend for sunny weather today with chemtrail free blue skies’ and see what happens. I have been doing this for a while now (here in the UK) and it does work, not all the time, but certainly i would say 7 or 8 times out of 10. If more of us were doing this, we could have this everyday, everywhere on our planet. We could intend it to rain between 1am and 4am each day, and then we would never get low on water. All i ask is that you open your minds a bit and try it. When you realise that we CAN do this, we should get together to discuss what we want next.

      Suppose humans aren’t considered very intelligent by ‘other’ intelligent beings? I would be surprised if anyone wanting to establish communication with humans beyond what is necessary.

      No one has seen an extraterrestial because they do not exist.

      Lack of evidence? Hahahahaha That prick is the Poster boy for the NWO deception. He is a Fraud.

      The main reason why Aliens are never materially seen/perceiveable is not because of some Enthusiastic Kibbutzim’s Mostest, Bestest & Greatest explanation of This, That & The Other, but because “Aliens” and other “Belief-Systems” are Spiritual Manifestations in reality. If true, how will any materially-driven entity be able to realise their Materialistcally Fuelled Belief-System? Just like this Mumbo-Jumbo comment about “The Spiritual Realm”? How? Certainly not because The Skye is Soo High !
