Red Dwarfs and Artificial Life
December 6, 2013
As we expand our search to include planetary systems orbiting red dwarf stars, we may find planets in far older, more stable environments than ours, yet capable of supporting life. If these life forms evolved into intelligent, self aware beings, and then further evolved into artificial life forms, the planets may host a highly advanced race of machine-like intelligence. If so, we may find indications of enormous-scale energy conversions in anomalous infrared readings. We may even discover a Dyson Sphere surrounding a red dwarf. What might such a system look like? Would such a culture have any interest in us?
