About this Video:
Italian Physicist Enrico Fermi determined that any intelligent species would require only a billion years to fully colonize the galaxy. “The Great Silence” is therefore a reality that cannot be ignored. Mr. Fermi famously asked, “Where is Everybody??”. When he did, “The Fermi Paradox” was born. In answer to the paradox, “The Great Filter” suggests that intelligent life tends to destroy itself, as it navigates the rigors of technological childhood. Noēsis gently warns that Humanity is now in contact with “The Great Filter”. Will we survive it, or will we be typical, and succumb to it? This video introduces “Cosmic Rarity”.
