Steve,

I don't think they would need to be hiding. They would only need to be unrealized by us, undetected. We don't see things at the atomic level naturally, but we know they're there, and not because we were happy in our knowledge before being able to do that.


But all members of an alien civilization would have to feel like that all the time.


Well, how many residents of London go to live permanently with a village in Africa each year? I don't think exploration has to equate to colonization.
