Are we the first civilization to reach this level? Not judging by the observation, cause light is too slow
I remember from the KIC threads that we were possibly one of the earlier civilizations that came into existence that we can see in our observable universe. Otherwise we could have detected the EM signals from their energy usage coming from other planets
Dr. John Brandenburg: Of all the pictures I've seen from the moon that show possible structures, the most impressive is a picture of a miles wide rectilinear structure. This looked unmistakably artificial, and it shouldn't be there. As somebody in the space defence community, I look on any such structure on the moon with great concern because it isn't ours, there's no way we could have built such a thing. It means someone else is up there.
We're currently at about 0.73 on the Kardashev Scale. It is presumed we'll reach type I in about 100 years, give or take, depending on how fast our technology advances.. 500 million earth-like planets in the galaxy.

I wonder what's most plausible
1) They suspect an 'alien superstructure' may be the reason a sun is DIMMING, so your question is flawed in the sense of light being too low, considering they suspect there might be aliens BECAUSE light is LOW.
2) We have only mapped/looked at a very small party of the OBSERVABLE universe, so we've seen a SMALL bit of a SMALL bit of a possibly infinite universe.
3) You are assuming that other aliens have the same need for a light source that we do, whereas they may have VERY different biology.
4) [See 2], the actual universe is FAR LARGER than the area we see, meaning there be other civilizations elsewhere out there.
I've been on FORUMS where people will HIGHLIGHT, UNDERLINE, BOLD, INCREASE SIZE, and COLOR what they perceive as Important and Relevant INFORMATION.
And I too HATE it. It is ANNOYING. And I wish they would STOP.
