the night sky looks uninhabited very nicely, namely that it IS uninhabited
because we are the first, after all somebody had to be.
John K Clark
What happens when a group of individuals are perfectly adapted to their
environment? No progress, right? Mutations maybe be dealt with like
chickens deal with obviously different chicks - kill them.
Look at the AmerIndians, the sub-Saharan Africans, the South American
Indians, and others. Would they still be living the same life if they
hadn't been disturbed by European explorers? A good bet is "yes". Why
couldn't a culture exist that just keeps doing the same thing for millions
of years because it keeps on working? Humans have a drive to invent and
create and no other species on our planet has it.
Maybe alien cultures are just Type B, laid back, content, no inevitable
population pressure, etc.
