In the recent article ‘Conflict between anthropic reasoning and observation’ (gr-qc/0303070) Ken D. Olum, using some inflation-based ideas and the anthropic premise that we should be typical among all intelligent observers in the Universe, arrives at the puzzling conclusion that ‘we should find ourselves in a large civilization (of galactic size) where most observers should be, while in fact we do not’. In this note we discuss the intriguing possibility whether we could be in fact immersed in a… Expand
Inflation-Theory Implications for Extraterrestrial Visitation
It has recently been argued that anthropic reasoning applied to inflation theory reinforces the prediction that we should find ourselves part of a large, galaxy-sized civilisation, thus strengtheningExpand
A Solution to the Fermi Paradox: The Solar System, part of a Galactic Hypercivilization?
TLDR
The Fermi Paradox is introduced and some of its solutions are presented and two proposals called the Subanthropic Principle and the Undetectability Conjecture are presented which include two hipotesis that denomino the Principio Subantropico and the Conjetura of Indetectabilidad. Expand
The Fermi Paradox in the light of the Inflationary and Brane World Cosmologies
The Fermi Paradox is discussed in the light of the inflationary and brane world cosmologies. We conclude that some brane world cosmologies may be of relevance for the problem of civilizationsExpand
Frameworks of Communication and Exchange
Here we examine some of the basic concepts that are likely to be important in communicating with ETI. Basic concepts such as ‘trade’, ‘peace’, ‘trust’, even ‘war’, which are essential to any form ofExpand
Project for a network of automatic stations for UFO monitoring
After presenting the past history of scientific methodology applied to UFO monitoring operations, a new project for an automatic station is presented and discussed. Some engineering issues are alsoExpand

Conflict between anthropic reasoning and observation
Anthropic reasoning often begins with the premise that we should expect to find ourselves typical among all intelligent observers. However, in the infinite universe predicted by inflation, there areExpand
