### Every single one of them? Untold trillions of superminds, over billions
of years, always and inevitably getting bored? Not even one of them
deciding to send out even a single self-replicating probe designed to
self-replicate for ever, just for the heck of it?
Nah, the only explanation I have is that we may have a chance of becoming

of the cosmic endowment for the next 10 trillion years or so. Assuming not
everybody gets bored.
