The search for extraterrestrial intelligence seems to focus on boring, unintelligible signals resulting from some emotionally unstable star guffing off for no good reason. It doesn’t matter if you’re tracking deer, humans, aliens or a discount cheeseburger at 2 in the morning; the best way to hunt something is to look for signs of its existence and follow them.When an advanced civilization burns itself out it will do so with a bang, quite literally in most cases. Terraforming a planet is one thing, but if a civilization is capable of manipulating the very stars themselves this indicates the presence of a highly advanced race whose actions will be noticeable from thousands of light years away.
