I have no idea. Nobody else does, either. This includes the hypothetical aliens.

All I know is that if we ever want to come anywhere close to solving that mystery, we need to invest more in space efforts. When are we going to colonize the moon? Mars? Until we can at least make it that far, there's no point in even asking this question because we lack the technology to figure it out even if they are there. If you really want to know the answer, donate some time or money to NASA or your local space program and write to your political representatives asking them to invest more in space.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]
