"How Stars May Have Just Solved the Fermi Paradox" -- it's common sense, too
Second Thought proposes “How Stars May Have Just Solved the Fermi Paradox”. That’s been around since 1950.
It’s relatively simple. Stars revolve around the center of the galaxy. At times they get relatively closer just as planets in a solar system do. So an advanced civilization could wait for a “good time”, to quote a good friend from the past on how “bumping frequency” in a large city helps people build relationships. (Or it leads to glances).
The short also maintains that If a civilization had visited us before the comet/asteroid strike that destroyed the dinosaurs, all traces of it might have been wiped out.
