Old Chemically Mature Galaxies and the Fermi Paradox

An interesting spin on the Fermi Paradox - 12 billion years ago

there were whole galaxies more chemically mature than our sun.

A year or two ago I recall a discussion somewhere about

how we are alone because it has only been recently that sufficient

chemicals for life were available - according to the Big Bang theory.

The "big bang" has undergone several modifications since it was first proposed by Le Maittre (he called it the "cosmic atom" theory).

I have no doubt that it will be modified or rejected as we learn more.

Theories are at best provisional since the Last Fact has yet to be observed and probably never will be observed by our kind. We will be gone and dust long before that happens.

There is a Lot More Out There than has been accounted for. Baryonic matter (the stuff of atoms and quarks) only accounts for five percent of the mass-energy of the cosmos. That means there is ninety five percent to be accounted for properly.
