The Great Filter discussion is an interesting one. When I read articles like that one I think that they commingle two separate concepts too easily. Staying on your homework and building transmitters and receivers is totally separate from colonizing other worlds. The first one is "easy" the second one is damn hard.

The easiest part of the second one is to colonize another planet in your solar system, if there is one worth colonizing. I do not think we have one worth colonizing. Without some stupendous breakthroughs in physics I do not see us colonizing planets in other solar systems; it is just too ****ing far to go.
