So I was reading up on why, if the Universe has so many stars/planets why have we not detected any other form of life, Femmi states it's because there is no other life, or if there is/was - it extinguishes itself almost immediately. And then I read about just how young the Universe, and even the Earth really is - according to https://www.universetoday.com/11430/the-end-of-everything/ the Universe wont officially end (stars wont die out) until 100 trillion years from now... Considering that the Universe is only 13.7 billion years old, and the Earth itself is only 4.5 billion years old compared to the potential 'end age' of the Universe - I wonder are we looking at things from the completely wrong angle? I mean lets say in 50 trillion years from not we have not found other intelligent life... that sounds pretty reasonable - but it seems to me like scientists are expecting us to find the 'kettle boiled' as soon as they switched the kettle on. Could it be that we are just incredibly lucky to be one of the first forms of life to evolve in the Universe, rather then the more negative outlook that we are the first and the last - given that the Universe has barely inhaled/exhaled its first breath with how long it could stick around?
