Fermi's "paradox" -- we don't see ETIs because they're in hyperspace. Does any of this speculation require analog computing?

Well, remember this was Lee Smolin at Tufts responding Dyson's notion that life was necessary to be analog. Smolin contends that there has to be a mix (if I undertand his premise). It might make it invisible to us, however at this point in astronomy, unless we have some phenomena to indicate star mining, or what not, we must just that there is no evidence for these dues living in another cosmic realm. Rather, its Smolin's contention that life will evolve into this direction, and inhabit spaces, nearly unimaginable to the likes of me.
