Frankly, the Drake Equation tells us nothing about how many
aliens there are. It totally ignores interstellar travel,
migration, colonization, terraforming. It ignores all the
evidence that aliens are visiting.

A key term is the time a civilization lasts. We have no data
whatsoever on how long any civilization lasts...

It ignores the simple fact that technological progress comes
from doing things differently whether travel or communication.

One would think the fast rate of change over the past 100 years
in energy production, travel, communications would have taught
us something..Admittedly asronomers have had little to do with
any of these developments.
