I can't agree with you.

Even if *they* prefer staying home and compute heavily - what I would also endorse - there is no reason for them, not to send out and army of "stupid robots", to acquire more of the computing substrate. For the (future) use.

Not doing that, would be too risky, somebody else might do (just) that.

If they are that altruistic, then there is no sense, to live others in misery.

In any case - they must go out with the near light speed.

The answer to the Fermi paradox is the simple one.

No doubt, that was too early for a civilization (and even life) 10 billion years ago.

Is it that hard to understand, that still is? For some reason we can imagine. Like the RARE EARTHs.
