Fermi Paradox May Limit Humanities Exponential Growth

I'm back with the answer! You may ask what is the question?
Well, the question is my fellow human, How does humanity survive long enough to go to the stars?
Advanced Civilizations can function within limited resources for exponential growth. The Fermi Paradox makes one other assumption which may not be true. This assumption is that humans as they expand will consume more resources. What if they could expand without consuming so many resources, as well as travel outward among the stars in a virtual way?
Hypothetical "science" fiction like proposal would be to digitize humanity (we already are going in that direction) upload our consciousness and physical bodies into cyberspace, hence Second Life, social networks, digital broadcasts, genome project, group intelligence through Internet.
Then afterward, expand outward and only instantiate a physical presence when necessary, mostly using robot remotes, shielding for our digital environs and expand outward to the stars. Populate a planet only when it has advantages for survival and move onward, eventually maybe mastering instantaneous travel through high energy wormhole physics, if possible. Unless this takes us to alternate realities, which we are always selecting in the now through our very actions (if you ready on in the blog you'll get me).
Somewhat simple really, once we acquire the technology, whole races could travel on viral expanding "microstarships" to the stars, time dilation could be used to slow down the cpu cycles on the starship so that the perceived journey for consciousness would be short.
