 For the purpose of explaining the Fermi Paradox, it shouldn't matter
how much below 1 it is.
 My "slightly" conclusion was based on the assumption (hardly proven) that
parameter changes which make intelligent life less probable also reduce
black hole production. They both seem to be connected to something that
can roughly be described as the complexity of the matter distribution in
the universe.
