I was really responding to the title of the thread, where you said "solving the Fermi paradox." I assume you meant that you intended to solve it, which to me implies that you were offering "the solution," not just another possible solution like so many others. If you only mean to say "if what I propose is true, then this would solve the Fermi paradox," then that goes for anything. I can make up my own, "if all aliens have a shielding mechanism that stops us from seeing them, then the Fermi paradox is solved." But I thought that you intended to prove that your solution could actually be demonstrated to be true.
