Integration Immaturity: A Possible Solution of the Fermi Paradox
by Open Science Repository Astronomy
This paper describes a possible solution of the Fermi paradox. It explains the Great Silence as an artificial situation under which underdeveloped, morally immature isolated civilizations are kept within because they are considered not ready for integration with more advanced civilizations. Those immature civilizations, of which humanity is just one of probably millions of other cases, if integrated could use the scientific knowledge shared by advanced civilizations to harm themselves, other civilizations or the spatial environment, so they are kept isolated until they reach enough moral development to permit the integration without such dangers. If humankind wants to qualify for integration as soon as possible, to benefit from advanced science and technology, it should make moral progress a priority.Keywords:
