The Universe is incredibly big and seems full of potential for life, with billions of habitable planets. If an advanced civilization had the technology to travel between the stars, at just 0.1% of the speed of light, It could colonize our galaxy in roughly 100 million years. Which is not that long given the billions of years the milky way has existed – so in principle any spacefaring civilization should be able to spread rapidly over huge sectors of the galaxy. And yet we see nothing, hear nothing, the universe seems empty. Devoid of others. This is the Fermi Paradox, which we have discussed in more detail in other videos.

Confronted with the seemingly empty universe, humanity faces a dilemma. We desperately want to know if we are alone in the Milky Way. We want to call out and reveal ourselves to anyone watching but that could be the last thing we ever do. Because maybe the universe is not empty. Maybe it’s full of civilizations but they are hiding from each other. Maybe the civilizations that attracted attention in the past were wiped away by invisible arrows. This is the Dark Forest solution to the Fermi paradox.

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell 15/12/2021 - 4:42 Chiều

If this video made you curious and you like reading great and long sci fi books, check out the three body problem by Liu Cixin, who formulated the dark forest idea for the first time. And with that, we say good bye to the year 12,021. It truly was a wild time, and passed so, so quickly. For us at the Kurzgesagt team it was full of changes and achievements and we learned so much and tried so many new things. And we have so many exciting ideas and projects that we can’t wait to share with you next year! I know I say this often but doing Kurzgesagt really is just such a joy. We only can do this because of you, so thank you so, so much. We appreciate it more than you might imagine. Have wonderful holidays and get safely into the year 12,022. We’ll see you on the other side! – Philipp

For the time being, it seems the best we can do is to carefully listen. That comment was so true

So it's another opinion presented as fact through a cynical lense. Same old kurzgesagt…

Shooting first to avoid being destroyed only makes sense for civilisations relatively close in technological development. Considering the age of the universe though, it's very likely that two civilizations that meet will have vastly different tech levels, wider than cavemen Vs current tech on Earth. Meaning that the war is already won by the most developed civilization. It doesn't make sense for the superior civilization to strike first because the other doesn't pose a threat at all. And it doesn't make sense for the inferior civilization to strike first because they have no chance of winning.

That's basically projecting the logic of capitalism onto nature to pretend it's natural, and then project it onto other what other civilizations would be. The way I see it, it's western imagination being haunted by colonialism, and creating a dystopia by asking "what if it had happened to us?". At 2:39 this is made almost explicit by the animation, but the text stays in the abstract and the general. The video might also reflect the effect of the Cold War onto our political imagination, which might have recently been reactivated by the Russian hypersonic missiles, as 7:00 could indicate.

What I learn from this video is the URGENCY of better communication.
please develop more translators for different species on our own planet so the chances for peaceful encounters in space will be higher!
And also it would help us on our own planet if we could understand plants and fungi
