Ok, folks, if Mike is right, then this is *important*, if star lifting
or stellar husbandry cannot be done, then it definately constrains
some of the paths that civilizations may take, impacts the Fermi

the next time you are having a beer with them, mention this to them
and see if it jogs their memories.

Is or is not Star Lifting/Stellar Husbandry possible?
That is the question.
