I dont think he thinks anything except they are like in the movies, have spacesuits, blow in and out of black holes, experience "trauma" for
traveling the way they do according to him, and they prob need spaceships to move through space.*
(*Class B sci-fi movie and/or Playstation interpretation.)
They could be and look like nothing we can even imagine, may not travel at all through space or wormholes...nor by any kind of "ship" using
"propulsion-methods", but in ways and with materials we cant even imagine yet.
So...based on advanced intelligence and on what I can only assume (not from movies or video games) is closer to the truth: I'd accept the given that
they are farther along than us, smarter than us, more advanced than us, have objectives of things we cant imagine...and that we're NOT advanced enough
to understand that they could look or do look any kind of specific way for reasons we Earthling cant understand yet.
So this question, though well-intended, really gives them no credit while ascerting they "appear as they do". And just HOW do they appear? Which time,
and during what incident? In what place in history? Maybe in a few thousand years after catching up to them at their level we'll get a pretty good
idea...certainly not now.
Appearing in many ways, shapes, no shapes, sizes, types, intelligences, attitudes, etc....so much so that Ill say they dont appear in any standard way
to eveyone at the same time and in the same places, for the same reasons.
So as to the OP's "Why do aliens appear as they do?". They dont. There ISNT any one-way they appear. And they can even look like you or I....or that
ant...or my dog...or an orb...or a light in the sky...etc, etc, etc.
