2858 : The Great Filter

The more I  read, the more I learn.

It's only in recent months that I have been exposed to "The Great Filter".
Essentially this means - (and this is me surmising my understanding) - that as we progress further and further (as an intellectual race) - at some point we turn on ourselves. Which means our own smartness will obliterate us.

This is the basis used to demonstrate that there are so few (nil as far as we know) smart races across the known universe. The belief is that each of the races, raced ahead and then shot themselves "proverbial".

And that is the definition of "The Great Filter".

Thats the post :-).
