Video Repost: The Dark Forest Theory Says We Should Leave the Aliens Alone! (Hint: They Don't Want Us to Contact Them)

Hello, astrobiologists! I assemble some interesting facts about the Dark Forest Theory in this blog post.
The Dark Forest Theory is distinct from the Fermi Paradox in that it posits that any advanced civilization will be so intent on its survival that it will keep itself hidden to avoid detection by possible hostile civilizations. This theory argues that whatever evidence exists of intelligent life will likely remain hidden and unknown due to a collective decision of self-preservation among civilizations.
