I agree with Matt here. They would be invisible and subtle. If they were to advance a civilization then they would do so incrementally without the obvious perception of change and dynamics.

No. If an alien intelligence is smarter than us, then they will find us
first, and we will not be aware of their presence. It would be as if we were
Martian bacteria discovered by Earthlings.
