"Chas. Krauthammer: "Are we alone in the universe?""

........ That silence is maddening. Not just because it compounds our feeling of cosmic isolation, but because it makes no sense. As we inevitably find more and more exo-planets where intelligent life can exist, why have we found no evidence ‹ no signals, no radio waves ‹ that intelligent life does exist?

It¹s called the Fermi Paradox, after the great physicist who once asked, ³Where
is everybody?² Or as was once elaborated: ³All our logic, all our anti- isocentrism, assures us that we are not unique ‹ that they must be there. And yet we do not see them.²
