Finding alien life on a distant planet would be amazing news – or would it? If we are not the only intelligent life in the universe, this probably means our days are numbered and doom is certain.

  1. Did anyone else get the neo degrees Tyson add also we would probably die by the aliens they hate senseless aggression especial towards your own kind my friend ●•♡|♤□£♡|◇○♡~♤♡|¥~€£○¥○¿zncje8wjd said that his name means wealth dick

  2. if the filter is ahead of us there's nothing that says we'll be guaranteed to fail. We had to get through the previous filters too.
    Not to mention there being a filter we cant pass doesn't mean we just drop dead. All that means is we won't pass that point. So whether there are aliens or not wouldn't really effect us. Alien life on other planets wouldn't really be too different from other life on our own planet(aside from the part where they evolve to fit their planet). If the filter exist if we find aliens why wouldn't it exist for the other creatures already on our planet?

  3. To attain such step is a sin,

    For Too much of Knowledge is a sin.
    For curiosity is part of knowledge and it is what is destroying life as we know it right now!!!!

    Man creates:
    Plastic-destroys ocean,o zone layer
    Man wants:
    Nice home-destroys animals home
    Man creates:
    Appliances-ends up in the garbage and in the ocean
    Man wants:
    To be the greatest country-creates nuclear bombs

    See curiosity is a sin since adam and eve therefor its not a sin for a single person today but if all of us is curious what would happen to earth.

  4. Maybe the type 3 civilization of the milky way has a policy of not disturbing or interfering with civilizations that haven't discovered them yet.

  5. Evolution is a blind mechanism, there is no goal it tends to, there are just organisms that want to survive and reproduce. Intelligence indeed may be special, but that would mean we should at least find some primitive extraterrestrial single cell life forms.

  6. Excellent video!

    What I did not like to see was the limit of options. What we’re theorizing is so unknown that we must consider more scenarios than a mere two.
    In example, we might be settling into the huge mass of stars alongside other aliens equally slowly.
    Or, some thing or some phenomenon beyond solar systems is lethal to whatever aliens have attempted to travel. (But we might not have to travel through space as we know! We can’t predict futures.)
    Or, aliens are so radically different from what we expect that they don’t live for galactic expansion. Our brains are a result of our specific turn of events, so there may be an extremely different (or similar) thought process in aliens.

    One of my favorite thoughts is that there might be life evolved out of planets, in nebulas or some special clouds of matter.

  7. Humanity like all other forms of life is finite , it changes and eventually evolve into something else OR DIES OUT !!!

  9. And yes we have explored your solar system but left because mars got to much bacteria Europa was to cold and titan was to yellow so we left👽🖖

  10. The great filter is probably ob the speed of light I dunno.

    Kinda hard to become a galaxy wide civilization if it takes hundreds of years just to get to another star.

    Sure scifi has a few ideas but reality may have different ideas.

  11. The great filter is that evolution doesn’t exist and there is a God who made us. This video really doesn’t make sense.

  12. If each planet was colonised by us (each with 7 billion people on them) our population would still be 700 billion if not 7 trillion

  13. The most probable Great Filter: there is only so much harnassable non-renewable energy on any one planet, and all intelligent life must adapt and evolve technology from simple to complex using it. there is a time limit of sorts. Once off world, a life form has unlimited energy to progress technology. if life uses up the non-renewable before getting sustainably off world…..they are F$^%&.
    The Great Filter isnt some lofty thing that will happen to us. It is our own probability of working together to manage our resources and get off world, without killing each other or wasting to much time.
    Also the probability of a species having resources like oil/coal and natural gas, might be a filter itself. perhaps there have been many intelligent life forms throughout the universe. But most simply occur with less extinction events ahead of them. They dominate their planets at bronze age level tech permanently until planetary death.
    We might go out into space and find many peoples, we cant interact with (prime directive, lol)

  14. I can't believe that, even if we get together and put all our collectives efforts in it, we could make our planet permanently inhabitable. Life always finds a way.

  15. i think there is no such thing as a filter it would be great for us to find some living being like us we could trade and work togheter

  16. I might be missing something here but why do we consider conditions for other species the same as ours? Couldn’t it be possible that a planet without liquid water has a different type of living specie that doesn’t depend on water to live? That maybe they depend on another element to survive, or something like that?

  17. Normally I love these videos but this one….this one feels like it's playing some games. We have been searching for extra-terrestrial life for how long? In cosmic time scales it's nothing. Put me firmly in the camp of "It's probably something we can't even comprehend yet"

  18. The real question is what source of information do you trust 100% as fact? even at 99.999% leaves a very small possibility you haven't learned or have access to all their is to know. The points are laid out well here but the sheer statistically improbability of human life and all life on earth being the only life the universe is hard to accept without some punchline or gotcha. There are millions of species of life on earth and once you leave our atmosphere nothing? As for why we don't know about them. There is a far more probable answer. The facts are hidden from us. Or the facts are passed off as fake news. The use of dis and mis information simply needs to cast doubt on the messager or the source of the information. Couple that with a powerful indoctrination platform that surely prevents open and critical thinking as popular and accepted. So that being said, what source of information for or against the idea of life beyond this planet can we accept as fact 100% of the time? again even at 99.999% accurate, what lies in that small percentage could be the important bit that changes your perspective or even your belief in the reality you have been given. I think given any information that invalidates the reality we have been brought up to know would trigger cognitive dissonance, that would force us to accept the lie of the reality we know even in the face of incontrovertible facts and truth. This is how the mind stays sane. So the long and short of it is, the reality of life outside earth is not the issue, your ability to process this information WHEN not IF you come into it will be the true tragedy or triumph.
