This is the best reasoning yet I've seen on why we may be looking for the wrong thing entirely. Interestingly, Michael Shermer just posted on UFO/UAP likelihoods, but I found his reasoning much less compelling:


I do agree that organic matter is impractical for cross-galaxy travel, but I do imagine intelligent machines (maybe with our uploaded consciousness) could also traverse the Universe, though not nearly as fast as just a pure energy form. Maybe time does not matter for machines in the way it would for organic beings? If a species became post-human a billion years ago, it's not impossible we could be visited by their machine descendants by now.
