Welcome to Fermi's ParadoxIt's weird.
Fermi’s Paradox is the apparent contradiction between the high probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations and the lack of contact with such civilizations.
Fermi’s Paradox, or just the Fermi Paradox, is named after Enrico Fermi. Enrico Fermi is an Italian physicist who created the world’s first nuclear reactor.
Fermi was born on September 29, 1901 and passed away on November 28, 1954.

We should be very afraid
I believe that finding the answer should be humanity’s top priority. That’s because there is obviously something, common to ALL planets, that makes the emergence and survival of life like us so very rare. Asteroid strikes? Planetary core solidification and loss of magnetic field (a la Mars)? Pandemic? Something is snuffing out complicated life forms everywhere. We are a fluke living on borrowed time.
They run on machine time and don't last long enough
It has been suggested that civilisations based on biological life eventually migrate into intelligent computing hardware. Since hardware runs much faster than wetware, a few of our centuries would appear as millions of years to such civilisations. They may therefore run their course in a very short amount of objective time, drastically shortening the L parameter in Drake’s equation. This would make these civilisations almost impossible to detect, even if their appearance is relatively common. I have written a paper that examines this possibility in some detail. A pre publication draft of it is available on Research Gate at www.researchgate.net/publication/331261382.
Thoughts of a Engineer
I think it is possible for life in another place because of the vastness of space. We don't know where space ends. It is impossible to think we are all there is when you look a the heavens. I am a Christian and can't believe that God would just pick earth. The other worlds are so far away we will never know for sure.
Fermi's paradox solution
"Where are they?" Here is the answer. The time between the first detection of astronomical radio waves in 1932 and the technological singularity in 2045 is only 113 years. Each civilization capable of detecting astronomical radio waves will have a singularity. After a singularity a civilization would not bother to send out signals because it would be like communicating to dumb creatures and it would be a loss of energy (as carried away by photons). 113 years is nothing on galactic or cosmic time scales. The window of time for seeing alien life that is approximately at our stage of technological development is thus way too short. We should expect to not see them and vice versa.
