The simplest resolution to the Fermi Paradox is that aliens are present

I’m sure everyone is familiar, but the Fermi Paradox, formulated by famed Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, states:

There are billions of stars in the Milky Way similar to the Sun. With high probability, some of these stars have Earth-like planets in a circumstellar habitable zone. Many of these stars, and hence their planets, are much older than the Sun. If Earth-like planets are typical, some may have developed intelligent life long ago. Some of these civilizations may have developed interstellar travel, a step humans are investigating now. Even at the slow pace of currently envisioned interstellar travel, the Milky Way galaxy could be completely traversed in a few million years. Since many of the Sun-like stars are billions of years older than the Sun, the Earth should have already been visited by extraterrestrial civilizations, or at least their probes. However, there is no convincing evidence that this has happened.

However, there is increasingly good reason to think this has happened. Given the current state of affairs, it is most probable that NHI are here, as this presents the most logical resolution to the paradox. There is no paradox.

Hypothesizing the existence of NHIs on earth is not, as skeptics claim, unreasonable. In fact, it’s the most reasonable hypothesis at this point.
