Where Some ETs Might Be Hiding

Subject: Where Some ETs Might Be Hiding

Hello List,

Just mentioned, in a mail exchange, that at least one good
scientist - Lee Smolin - had suggested that advanced ET
societies might 'retire' to the sub-microscopic range to find
unlimited living space - and also maybe to avoid noisy emergent
primitive folk like us?

Yet there's another suggestion for where advanced species might
'disappear' to.

It had occurred to me before, in a general way, but was recently
re-presented in sharper focus in Iain M Banks' latest book - and
sadly probably his last - 'The Hydrogen Sonata'. Continuing the
theme of evolutionary 'progress' he wrote that many races
eventually become capable of entering 'The Sublime' and leaving
physical reality altogether.

It's sad and ironic that he was thinking along those lines
before he announced his own imminent departure.
