I decided to make this thread yesterday after watching a Science vídeo on vision of human eyes I saw some interesting info on how eyes actually
worked. That info also gave me an idea not only how humans could have better vision but how the so famous alien Grey vision worked. Let’ not take
SummarY: If you are lazy to read, The greys in terms of evolutionary process, are much more complex and better than humans.
The eyes on an animal first appeared on the Nemathelminthes, as a form of capting the refraction of light trough special designed photosynthetic cells
called rods. If the aliens possess Eyes this means that the place where they come from possess a star very simillar to Earth. Not necessarily a bright
The eyes work by capting light on the rentina and sending the information torugh the brain. Whomever the eyes work just like a camera. The more
potent camera the better you can actually see. We can see this on the athropods . But why booth have bigger eyes. Well, it'`s really simple, to detect
food. Insects need bigger eyes to hunt and protect themselfs. There's a number of reasons to so, one of them is because during their growth they are
This makes sense with the Grey aliens, they seem to be very fragile.
Some insects evolved to possess thousands more rod cells than humans do. That caused their eyes to grow larger, in a human being, rod cells like of an
insect would look something like this:
Grey alien eyes
Reminds you of something? Yep, but what this actually means? It means that in evolutionary terms, Greys are more superior than humans. Possessing eyes
that large would make them able to see objects miles away with no blur on the image processed by the brain, and also give them the ability see the
tiniest particles around them, spoting mosquitoes was never a problem to them.
The Brain on the Greys wouldn’t make sense if included an arthropod morphology on it, because they would be completely dumb. A larger brain
doesn’t mean more intelligence on any animal. But instead more functions for the body to do. What this means? Like the increased eyes, it would
mean that every part of the grey body is way more complex an advanced than our own, possessing much more functionalities and capabilities. So in order
to the body to be able to do those functions it would require a bigger brain.
This process was observed when the animals started to evolve. A nervous system turned animals to become more complex. Thanks to a nervous system
animals like the sea star are able to walk, worms are able to feel pain and escape from danger and allowed humans became humans.
The brain size like I said wouldn’t necessarily mean that the Greys would be smarter. The brain is the equivalent of the processor of our brain, the
bigger and more powerful more complex functions the computer is able to do. This is no different from the human brain, which possess many dedicated
brain areas just to do many of these functions: Dreaming, motion capture, organs information, center of motion etc . etc
That comes with consequences trough. The ability of a brain/computer to make more functions and complex ones would increase a lot the chances of some
problem happening, you can observe that on nowdays computers, how many times you had problems with some program not running properly?. Therefore, Grey
organs are more suggestive to have problems. It’s a shame we don’t have their technology.
Anyway, their brains are bigger; in consequence they are probably smarter. I would say they are smart as humans, since they never proven really to
have a genius level intellect to win easily on dialogues against people.
We can't really know how that even works. They don't have genintalia like most of animals. Even worms have visible genintals. So my bet is that they
similar to serpulids in that manner. That we knos is that they posses the alternace of generation, making possible to have a genetic variability,
otherwise they would be doomed to extinction just like bananas are today.
By giving away gamets trough an invisible structure, just like the serpulids, to other Grey (this would make them to have femeales and males) they
could generate a zygote which would later become another Grey of any sex.
What about the other body parts? Outside the arms, lex and torax, we can'`t really know how the rest of their body worked.
