Then there's the Rare Earth Hypothesis:
Quote
the Rare Earth Hypothesis argues that the origin of life and the evolution of biological complexity such as sexually reproducing, multicellular organisms on Earth (and, subsequently, human intelligence) required an improbable combination of astrophysical and geological events and circumstances. The hypothesis argues that complex extraterrestrial life is a very improbable phenomenon and likely to be extremely rare.

Then there's The Great Filter, that coincides with the Fermi Paradox, that states that in the possible evolution of intelligent life the likelihood is that something will go wrong along the way, either preventing intelligent life to evolve, or that some catastrophe will occur after intelligent life has evolved, self-created, probably.

Then again, maybe the galaxy is full of Von Neumann self-replicating probes or Bracewell probes. It may be more efficient to send robots into space to seek out intelligent life on other planets. Then there are Berserkers, malfunctioning self-replicating robots, as there will always be errors in replication.

As you infer, ET may be just around the corner, who knows?
