<snipped interesting and, I'll bet, likely embellishment on the Drake
equation>

I'm not surprised you never heard from anyone. Your idea
regarding the equation points in the shadows of the other 98%
that science refuses to consider or quantify because it doesn't
predictably repeat, isn't observable, or is not in line with a
comfortable theory or conveniently conceived paradigm <g>.
