Science: Where is Everyone?

I've just about completed reading Ray Durzweil's book "The Age of Spiritual Machines".

Assuming he is mostly correct then I beleive he's answered the question as to where all the Extra Terrestrials are. Theyre in cyberspace.

I beleive he described the singularity.

He mentions using bucky tubes as a possible building material for very future powerful comuputers. This would appear to indicate that carbon would be a very useful material for a post singularity culture.

What type of Stellar engineering would be required to alter a star generate excessive carbon? What might it look like from earth?
