and why would 'they' send 'probes'? And what makes you think anyone can 'send probes' all over an infinite universe?
the explanation for the alleged 'fermi paradox' looks kinda clear to me. Imperialist western assholes who have raped the whole world take for granted that 'aliens' would do the same thing with the whole universe...
however, I'd assume that intelligent beings wouldn't bother 'colonizing the universe'. So there isn't any 'paradox'. Just a self centered assumption made by some ppl.
