    1. **Three-Body Problem**:
    The three-body problem is a classic issue in physics and celestial mechanics that involves predicting the motion of three massive bodies (such as stars, planets, or moons) interacting through gravitational forces. In simple terms, it's about calculating the trajectories of three objects under their mutual gravitational attraction. While the two-body problem (like Earth orbiting the Sun) is relatively straightforward to solve, the addition of a third body significantly complicates the mathematical equations, making it notoriously difficult to find exact solutions. This problem has implications in understanding the dynamics of celestial systems, such as planetary orbits, moon orbits, and the interactions between stars in a galaxy.

    2. **Fermi Paradox**:
    The Fermi Paradox is a perplexing contradiction between the high probability of extraterrestrial life existing in the universe and the lack of evidence or contact with such civilizations. Named after the physicist Enrico Fermi, who first raised the question, it essentially asks: if there are so many stars and planets in the universe, and if the conditions for life are not exceptionally rare, then where are all the aliens? Various hypotheses attempt to explain this paradox, including the possibility that intelligent life is rare, that civilizations tend to self-destruct, that communication is difficult, or that we simply haven't been looking in the right way or for long enough.

    3. **Dark Forest Theory**:
    The Dark Forest Theory is a concept introduced in Liu Cixin's science fiction novel "The Dark Forest," which is the second book in the "Remembrance of Earth's Past" trilogy. In this theory, the universe is portrayed as a dark forest where every civilization is likened to a hunter. Each civilization is fearful of others and aware that revealing their existence could make them a target for destruction. The analogy suggests that in such a scenario, it's safer for civilizations to remain silent and hidden, rather than broadcasting their presence. This theory offers a chilling explanation for the Fermi Paradox: the reason we haven't encountered extraterrestrial civilizations is that they are deliberately keeping quiet to avoid detection by potentially hostile neighbors.

    I think jiggaboo johnson is wrong and aliens/UFOs are real
