### I take the observation at Tabby's star and calculate the expected
number of finished Dyson spheres in our neighborhood, without making any
specific assumptions about the aliens. If you see a Dyson sphere being
built close to Earth as soon as you build a telescope, it implies that
Dyson spheres are common as dirt, regardless of whether the aliens
responsible are expansionist or not.
