Where are the aliens?

– Explanations for the Fermi Paradox

In my former article „On the Drake equation“ I have shown a way how to reduce the number of 4 completely unknown Variables in the Drake equation to only one by application of a model of an interstellar ecology. The Drake equation was introduced in 1961 and provides a simple model for the estimation of the number of intelligent communicative civilizations in our home galaxy. It is related to the Fermi paradox. The Fermi paradox is the contradiction between the lack of evidence for the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations and the estimates that lead regularly to very high probabilities for existence. Famous physicist Enrico Fermi (1901-1954) once produced the following arguments:

Very carefully (it was not released in the mass media so far. Everybody is waiting for verification. So don’t expect too much):
Our generation might be possibly witnessing in these days the discovery of an interstellar communication system between 234 civilizations in our galactic proximity [1].
Astronomers analyzed the light from 2.5 million stars. They found 234 anomalies that could have 5 possible explanations:
  • instrumental and data reduction effects
  • rotational transitions in molecules
  • the Fourier transform of spectral lines
  • rapid pulsations of the stars
  • laser pulses from extra terrestrial intelligences (ETI)
From these 5 possible explanations of the anomalies astronomers could eleminate 3 so far with high probability. The remaining explanations is an error out of the instrument and data reduction or periodic laser pulses as predicted by physicist Ermanno Borra 2012 [2]. If it can be proven, the spike in the FFT (Fast Fourier Transformation, a standard signal analyzing algorithm) does not come out of the measurement system itself, then it has to be artificial laser sources with a very high probability. Next step would be building huge lasers and sending strong pulse signals into the direction of a few of the nearest of the laser sources to proof Borra’s hypothesis and thereby:
