You nailed it right on the head...
It's not that nothing is impossible, it's that it's just improbable.
To say life even advanced life would even be using radio signals is a bit hard to ponder, but then again, they might have a very networked setup and
maybe their equivalent to dishwashers still use such signals.
I'd beg to argue that if an advanced civilization was out there, they would be using the laws of quantum entanglement to communicate via interstellar
means, not radio signals, which would be like us using Morse code alongside 4g phones.
That's always been my issue with seti.
Then you have the talks about life and it being not carbon based and so forth, then it's equally plausible that other life could have developed or
even grown other means of communication, kinda how ants use chemicals to talk and dolphins use whistles + echolocation.
It's such an open ended concept as to what life COULD be, that trying to detect their communications using what we deem to be a possible common deal,
is rather presumptuous.
There are better odds that these class 5+ civilizations are scouting the multiverses with autonomous machines than biological entities, because of the
shelf life and lack of dynamic distractions.
