Fairies are adorable.
If I think about other beings who possibly live near us but are invisible to most of us, it always gets me thinking about things like - how do they
live their everyday lives, what do they do? If they have ability to play with their appearence, how do they look like in their natural form? (If they
are like male and female humans with small differences, then we must be closely related as spicies.) How long could be their life span? What kind of
different personalities they have? And so on.
I wonder along those lines too. Sometimes I get treated to an insight.
Appearance is a odd thing. One of the wood-nymphs with the wicked sense of humour was a lot if dragonfly in her appearance. I was wondering once why
she had three pairs of wings, she turned and looked at me and I could see her countenance was very much a dragonfly's face.
Her mannerisms, especially how she flitters about over water looking into another world throght the surface "reflection"; nose down bum up is just
like the dragonflys.
It is fairly obvious that she loves the little insects very much and spends a lot of time with them. She seems to have inverted her appearance in a
way between human girl and dragonfly. The three pairs of wings correspond to the three pairs of legs that insects have.
I don't know if she has an " original" form, I doubt it and it is not important.
So, the stories of fairy-folk getting people lost in the woods and some frightening "apparitions" scaring people might just be these folk protecting
something they love from "destructive humans".
Life span? They may not have a limited " span".
It is in the way they reproduce themselves. When they become weary of life, they divide their consciousness into six or so replicas of themselves and
then "mom" steps back and her "daughters" begin life.
The little ones are full of innocence yet still have all their ancestor's memories stretching back to before the earth was even here.
Six little identical sextuplets who from that moment experience living as individuals and gain an individuality as they live.
They don't ordinarily die.
Compared to the sexual reproduction of humans and earth life in general, where evolution flashes past in the blink of a 100,00 years, change is very
slow in the fairy folk in comparison. One could say sexual reproduction is super fast change.
I´ve read a lot of encounters with ET or other beings who usually seem to be not from our visible world and I usually always want to learn about
their experience as living beings, their relationships and things like that. To me it´s more interesting than knowing how their technology works.
Because I think that social aspects of beings and groups show their level of development much more than technlogy.
I think you have expressed the perfect sentiment foir learning about those Beings . . . .
