Episode Description

Could it be that humanity hasn't found evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence because it's too advanced for us to recognize? This is the essence of the Transcension Hypothesis. Based in part on the idea of exponential growth and the "technological singularity", this hypothesis argues that advanced intelligence will eventually "transcend" and become undetectable. Examining human history and the nature of exponential growth, it is possible that extraterrestrials have "transcended" to an entirely new state of existence (and someday, we may too!).
