Science Says: We're alone, but not forever. We're the first!

While some theories might have us at the end of the universe’s life party, this suggests we’re at the very beginning and occupies the entertaining possibility we’re the first organic life to occupy this level of development; and that discovering alien life and interacting with it will likely be our mission; intended or not.

The formal report – with Forbes jokes aside – is here and one of the points raised is that we currently live in the 0.14% beginning stretch of the universes’ probable trillion-year life-span. We have another 99.86% of the universe’s life to go. There’s some other super-fancy math that I’m not going to pretend to know completely, so if you think you can understand it then feel free to read and regurgitate.


Equestria may exist, but we may be the ones to have to make it.

Have fun.

This has been a scientific hypothesis sought to be one possible answer to the Fermi Paradox.
 

 

 

Another hypothesis create to solve the Fermi Paradox is the Gamma-Ray Burst Hypothesis:
https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.113.231102

Basically this ^

 

However, unless we actually start going Out there these hypothesis will remain unproven.

Until then we'll be sitting on our own little chunk of rock and water, whizzing about around an average star and looking out into the night's sky, theorizing if somewhere some other beings are doing the same thing.

Well, we'd better get to work on our advanced super weapons so that when we mysteriously vanish into the mists if time they can become plot McGuffins in the tales of the future.

I've figured for some time that the universe is too young for us to be the last. Things are just now (cosmologically speaking) stable and ripe enough to support life. There are now billions and billions *cough* of years for life to develop and flourish. We may be among the first signs of that life, though it does sadden me to think we will be long gone and forgotten before another intelligent species seeks out life of their own.
