Fermi’s paradox ponders that since the universe is so vast, and our civilization is a relatively young one compared to the age of the universe, where are all the aliens? Are we truly alone? Some scientists believe that Earth is under watch; the aliens know about us, but don’t wish to interfere with our progress as a society. “Hard to be a God” imagines a situation in which humans interfere with an alien civilization that’s centuries behind in progress, and the complex situations that arise when you mess with natural development.
