Looks like Isaac Arthur uploaded a video on the same subject

its also remind me of matrix.but in the matrix they just stayed on earth.
the one question i have in mind is: will they will really define as alive?
we are living by biochimestry process etc. the machines will be alive by computer (math, formulas)
so basically a machines could define alive if they will do the same process our bodies do but in different way.
but its hard to think of a machines as living beings.
but maybe that how we can imagine exotic, lets say iron or metal based life forms.

There could be thousands of probes in our solar system without us knowing. How could we know that the probes haven't been here for millions of years?

Maybe we are the probes. Sufficiently advanced self-replicating machines could be indistinguishable from life.

Or maybe life itself on this planet is a self-replicating machine, made by a technologically-advanced civility four billions of years ago.

Maybe the civilization that created Earth's self replicating machines is in itself a self-replicating machine made by another civilization.

Might be just my own view but biological systems seem like a bad idea for a probe.

Even if you do something like what Genomic SETI is looking for you run a huge risk of your message being corrupted. It is also highly inefficient and takes millions or billions of years, if ever, to evolve an intelligent species capable of making more probes.

It is highly unlikely we are anyone's creation.

Don't have a link but it was some animation or video that was cut and edited from Cosmos. Simply took a few frames from before he points, duplicated, and reversed them.

Very patient aliens, then.

The probes could easily seed planets with primitive life, though. So if such probes have been made, life could be very common in the galaxy.
