New Fermi Paradox Proposal - Vaktus - 10-19-2017

Interestingly, Anders Sandberg helped come up with the idea.

An interesting idea, thank you for sharing. I bet someone, somewhere in the OA setting is doing this. Still, both there and in real life, it seems unlikely that all members of every species would do this. All it takes is one exception and - galaxy colonized.

Yes; thanks for reminding me. I intend to add this possibility as a major strategy for the Diamond Network ahuman AIs; at least some of them are establishing small but defensible long-term storage structures around red dwarfs so that they can persist into the deep future, when computation is more efficient. The Eternal may also be doing the same thing.

We discussed this on a thread a month or two ago, then I promptly forgot about it.
