Using Fermi's Paradox to inform our understanding of physics
The lack of evidence for the existence of starfaring intelligent life in the universe is perplexing. It becomes even more perplexing when we search the heavens for evidence of ships traveling near the speed of light. They should show up like candles in the dark. But they're not there. Should we take this as a half-empty view of the evidence that no one is building and using fast STL starships? Or should we take this as a half-full view and conclude that there is a way around the apparent physical limit of the speed of light?
