Мифы о внеземных цивилизациях и онтологическое решение парадокса Ферми

Философские науки. 2016. № 6. С. 69-76.
Данько С. В., Марков А. В.

The paper discusses modeling of possible worlds, centered on the non-human mind, which in different forms of culture tends to be called "extraterrestrial." It is proved that construction of such models in the art (literature, cinema) is always a genre convention, but in fact these worlds completely unthinkable for a person, and this condition is primary not only for arts and everyday thinking, but also for science (astrobiology). Discussing the boundaries of language and thought the paper offers radical solution of the "Fermi Paradox", consisting in the fact that the main idea of extraterrestrial intelligence is meaningless, that allows to give a simple answer to the question by Enrico Fermi "Well, where are they?" (representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations).
