Monday Spotlight: Fermi Paradox

Time for this week's Monday Spotlight, highlighting one of the 530 articles on my website at

I've always been fascinated by the Fermi Paradox (and offer one fanciful solution to it in my Sherlock Holmes pastiche "You See But You Do Not Observer", which is available through Fictionwise). Here, in today's spotlighted article entitled "Where are the Aliens?", I provide a more chilling answer.

There is also the possibility that there are 'aliens' on other worlds out there, but that they are so mind-boggingly different that we can't even fathom how they would communicate. Everything we base our search for life other than ours on is inherently from our own perspective, and therefore we apply our own rules and understandings of 'everything' to it. Which then assumes that this other life evolved essentially exactly like us. I find this highly unlikely. I think there is plenty of other life out there, we just don't know what we're looking for or how to understand what we don't know.

Robert, i just read Where are the Aliens. Moving piece but I prescribe to the noninterference directive. I would expect that the free will of man extends beyond planet earth.
