Brane Worlds, the Subanthropic Principle and the Undetectability Conjecture
Besides, Olum’s arguments implying that inflation must necessarily aggravate the (very serious) ‘missing-alien’ problem do not seem very convincing and it is some brane world scenarios, in our opinion, what could in fact aggravate dramatically this problem.
