My personal hypothesis regarding this inevitable culmination of infinite technological progress humanity is approaching is that all
intelligent species reaching 'singularity
' actually gain the ability to leave the
3-Dimensional universe. This would explain why the visible universe is not already teaming with life. They've gone to higher (or simply other
states of being.
The first logical once given the opportunity would be to leave this cold, dark death-trap called 'reality.' Assuming we can actually guess what a
super intelligent race would do, it's likely post-singularity societies opt to leave this 'intelligence breeding ground' (called the Cosmos) rather
than taking on the mammoth task of colonizing it. It's possibly much simpler (and would require less energy) to slide into a parallel reality.
It's my opinion that life's purpose is to evolve back to a god-like state, not to stagnate in a cooling cosmos where entropy reigns supreme.
Intelligence fights entropy by building upon itself and creating new states of connectedness, which is actually opposite to what the rest of the
physical universe has been doing for billions of years. This would explain why we're all stuck here wondering where everybody is - they're all far,
far away (or possibly only inches away - in another reality), but they're there. We're actually in a cosmic womb right now, waiting to be
M-Theory allows many levels of existence. Quantum Theory allows many possible realities/timelines to coexist. Imagine if there was indeed any level of
truth in either theory - then imagine choosing to remain within one's dimension of origin. A truly intelligent race would move on, as we will also do
sometime this century.
This perspective leads one to believe that there is no
intergalactic community, only scattered eggs of intelligence hatching throughout the
universe, awaiting transcendence towards new states of being.
