Do we have any evidence, such as extremely odd star formations; that might indicate intelligence? A hexagon of stars, might prove to be more efficient mathematically, in moving mater, energy, and information then a randon scattering; as we appear to have currently. Unless we gain positve evidence, Fermi and Tipler are right. We have met 'intelligent-life' and they is us.
