Yup, the odds are they are either long dead, not yet evolved, or too far away.

If we're the most advanced life in the cosmos my depression just got a lot worse.

Ok i almost got mad the realised two far away means they are almost for sure out there but the distance we would never know.. I saw some video that basicaly said we will never get to another galaxy it is impossible unless wormholes or some improbable shit was real.. They are just moving to fast away from each other and the distance between them is insane as well.. Shit getting to another star is going to be almost impossible.

or they have always been there and really aren't into contacting the earth niggers

it took at least hundreds of millions of years of evolution, not 100,000 years, after billions of years of stabilization of climate, atmosphere, etc, for life to reach our "intelligent" state.

Here's a more important fact everyone overlooks: the universe is expanding, at an accelerating pace, which means even if there is "intelligent" life somewhere else, the odds are that it is traveling away from us at a faster rate than any technology could bring them towards us. Fairly recent research has found that most of the universe is traveling/expanding away from us. So if there is "intelligent" life out there, the odds, BY FAR, are that they are actually traveling AWAY from us right now faster than they could ever travel towards us

I also like to add that life forms that are able to bend space time and travel great distances in an instant are most likely capable of converting matter to energy, and energy to matter. They most likely have no desire to interact with a war mongering and backwards civilization such as ours, as they can simply go somewhere else far away from our bullshit. Taking our knowledge of nano technology, artificial intelligence, and folks buying into this trans-humanism nonsense into account, it's likely that an advanced starfarring civilization has ascended their intelligence into a machine, or a higher dimension. I would argue that we are like ants to them. An ant colony that exists for a blink of the eye.

Let's also not forget the "nope-factor." Consider all the ODDS are in favor of advanced intelligent light-year traveling alien species; they could take one look at us and just go, "Nope." And stay the fuck away from us, wait for us to either destroy ourselves or evolve into something more hospitable and intelligent.
