Are We Alone in the Cosmos, cursed by Fermi's Paradox?

Are We Alone in the Cosmos, cursed by Fermi's Paradox? | fermi paradox | Scoop.it

The Fermi Paradox refers to a question posed by the great physicist Enrico Fermi in the 1940s, demanding: "If it seems so likely the universe may host other life forms, how come we haven't seen any signs?" Not just of radio beacons, but of mighty structures that our own descendants might someday build out there in space. Or leakage from chatty commerce between civilizations. Or indeed, any trace that the Earth was visited during the 2 billion years that it was "prime real estate" with an oxygen atmosphere, but nothing higher than slime molds to defend it.

I don't think I have anything smarter to add than David Brin, who is pretty well versed in this topic.  I just signed up for Scoop it and this is my first post.
