    When I read the article I imagined a spacecraft that orbits the star which is ever changing in shape.

    that would be probably a little more difficult to explain than a dyson ring/swarm/bubble/net/etc.

    Bah, they don't know anything and are only making educated guesses with very limited data
    to make sensational headlines.

    What we know now is massive compared to 100 or 1000 tears ago, but we haven't even began
    to scratch the surface of what is out there or what there is to know. I can only hope we get there
    someday assuming don't blow ourselves up or die off before we get to that point.

    Also let's hope that whatever is out there, is friendly and more wise.

    If they have reached a stage where they can chart the cosmos they are most probably friendly, although whether or not they are friendly to -other- forms of life is still to be confirmed.
