i apologize in advance for my non-blackberry internet cell phone connection which does not format well here. why must we think that intelligent alien races would either self -destruct from civil war or if not that, give up expansionism to become virtual lotus eaters? Lol  The great powers out there may frown on macro-engineering projects as being a scar on the natural beauty of the universe and that is why we don't see it.  Or they may have technology so advanced that they simply do not need dyson sphere sized solar collectors, etc..  Perhaps they have gone post-singularity and have bored into other planes of existance so young races like ours have room to develop.  They may be cosmic ecologists at heart.  I believe intelligent alien life is out there and may even be aware of us and have our location marked down on their maps as being off limits for now.  Humanity may be voracious in its appetite to devour and reshape nature but that may not be the
 case out there.  I suspect for ages to come sentients will find it amusing that we dared to think humanity could be alone in such a vast universe.                     John grigg
