The question remains open: How long will it take a new civilisation to have three dimensional laser technology on a micro scale to read out that data again ?
How much of complexity does this civilisation require and with what kind of surplus energy do they want to achieve this ?
As I read it a microscope and a plarisation filter is enough to read out the data ? I am not confinced, but might be possible.
