minor sacrifice to make to ensure the longer existance of a species as the dyson sphere model is highly unlikely due to the resource requirement and the smaller stable sequence stella body's will outlast any other type of star in the galaxy some for litterally trillion's of years as opposed to G2 star yellow dwarf 7 to 11 billion year life where SOL is a main sequence with a projected life of 8 to 9 billion year's where a year is based as a division of time equal to the duration of one complete orbit of sol 3 (Earth) around SOL (though if vulcan had not broken (and assuming it was a planetoid not a asteroid or commetary fragment) up it would be SOL 4), Given that SOL's nearest neighbour is Proxima in the Centaur constellation at about 4.35 LY or distant, a point worth noting is that almost all single brown and red dwarf stars are unlikely to have a complex plantary accretion discs during formation so the most likely planets are asteroid class and any colonisation would be at first in the form of station's or later artificial world's.
The Pleiades are also another very young star group that are also unlikely to host advanced life at of yet though given time they may one day host your descendant's - descendant's whom may find a way to visit there ancestors and be shocked at there savagery and brutality as well as there greedy petty nature's.
In 2.5 billion Years approximate estimate the galaxy in which you dwell and call the milky way will consume the andromda galaxy and during these galactic merging's violent collisions and tidal gravitational forces will tear the galaxy apart before it reform's into it's new form.
Anyway since hubble knocked triangulum of it's pedestal we know the universe is at least hundred's of time's bigger than previously thought.
Beside's Epsilon Eridani is more interesting.
And if you are looking for extremely long lived intelligent species then look to stable brown dward or small red dwarf star's were they may have relocated too if they ever evolved and developed the abillity to.
Epsilon Eridani; 800 million year old "K2" star 10 ly from Earth. Perhaps colonized, but no life of it's own yet.
Brown dwarf, and red dwarf stars are cold and dim; why would anyone want to live in the cold and dim?
Hint when you observe a photon or any other point of observation according to Schroedinger you change it's nature (cat and cyanide in a box) so therefor you are a quantum being with undefined potential.

My faith in ATS is restored! Thank you. My feelings at the time of the message were good, I wasn't stressed, or feeling any sort of negative emotion.
This is the first time I have got a clear message like this whilst I was wide awake and not even contemplating the subject matter. I had heard of Lyra, but not Vega.
I will go there if I can find the way and report back.
Thank you again for all your responses. Peace and Love.
