A valid position.....assuming that aliens want to be found and or want to make contact.

Aestivation? I had to look that up!


"AESTIVATION" see "ESTIVATION", "ESTIVATE: to spend the summer in a dormant condition." How is this different than hibernation? Must they estivate in the summer and hibernate in the winter? What if they don't have a summer or a winter?

Hey Mr. Physicist, how's come we ain't found any aliens?

That is not dead which can eternal lie: the aestivation hypothesis for resolving Fermi's paradox

Anders Sandberg, Stuart Armstrong, Milan M. Cirkovic
(Submitted on 27 Apr 2017)

If a civilization wants to maximize computation it appears rational to aestivate until the far future in order to exploit the low temperature environment: this can produce a 1030 multiplier of achievable computation. We hence suggest the "aestivation hypothesis": the reason we are not observing manifestations of alien civilizations is that they are currently (mostly) inactive, patiently waiting for future cosmic eras. This paper analyzes the assumptions going into the hypothesis and how physical law and observational evidence constrain the motivations of aliens compatible with the hypothesis.

Wow! Physicists are WEIRD!
