Are we looking for aliens in all the wrong ways?
Ethan Siegel

We are already predicting the advent of Super AI within the next 40 years, an intelligence level that will surpass that of humans and very quickly decide the future of the human race; to be caged, exterminated, or made semi immortal in blissful luxury.

Why then, would aliens with sufficient intelligence to have identified that there is another intelligent planet out there, not have also developed a Super AI, and either been caged, exterminated, or made semi immortal?

Perhaps the truth is that even if they are out there, they can’t be bothered to look, and their Super AI god already knows about us, and is just waiting for our Super AI god to get in touch.
