A scientist has put forward the extraordinary idea that one of the reasons we haven’t found alien life yet is because the universe is, in fact, an alien.

Caleb Scharf, Director of Astrobiology at Columbia University has postured the theory that perhaps the universe is in fact the ‘brain’ of a hyper-advanced alien race.

Writing in Nautilus, Scharf puts forward the astonishing idea that an alien species could become so advanced that it would be indistinguishable from physics itself.

Now if, like us, this is making your brain hurt just trying to work it out then don’t panic.

Scharf admits that this idea is probably best consumed through the “warped bottom of a beer glass”, and frankly we’re inclined to agree.

Aliens: Hidden in plain sight

In his article Scharf points out that just five per cent of the universe is actually made out of the matter that we know and understand.

A much larger 27 per cent is made from just mysterious completely unseen ‘stuff’.

While the generally agreed idea is that this ‘dark matter’ is made of nothing but weak subatomic particles we still have no conclusive way of describing what it actually is.

Scharf has a different view however:

“Dark matter could contain real complexity, and perhaps it is where all technologically advanced life ends up or where most life has always been. What better way to escape the nasty vagaries of supernova and gamma-ray bursts than to adopt a form that is immune to electromagnetic radiation?” he writes.

How would aliens do this? Oh it’s quite simple really they’d just build themselves a “a dark-matter 3D printer.”

He explains his theory further saying: “The universe does other funky and unexpected stuff. Notably, it began to expand at an accelerated rate about 5 billion years ago. This acceleration is conventionally chalked up to dark energy. But cosmologists don’t know why the cosmic acceleration began when it did.”

Scharf admits that in its current form his theory, and indeed many others surrounding the origins of dark matter are completely unprovable.

Of course humanity being humanity that certainly hasn’t stopped us trying to come up with new ideas no matter how crazy they might seem.

  1. Well… that is actually very f**d up if you think about it!!! What if our solar system is an Atom and we are part of a big massive organism that doesn’t even know we exist!!!
    Holly F***k!!

  2. The only truth i believe in is that we don’t and will never be able to understand the universe, simply because we can’t comprehend it. What we are, to the core, is based on what we see and how our mind process things. The universe, aliens, life, death are words we invented to suit our vision of the world as we see it, and have come to be accepted as a common truth. Yet it is more likely that we will always be the slaves of our own mind, doomed to find answers that are limited not only by our intelligence, but by how biased and far from the truth our reality is from the reality. That is, if such a thing as reality even exists…

  3. they have found life, what do you think all the ufos in our skies are piloted bye, us airforce lol. I seen a giant mother ship with my dad 40 years ago, so if i know they are here, so does the government. The only person who hasnt caught on is this clown who wrote the article.
