Hey all, I was just flicking through some old material when this notion occured to me.
It seems that the predominate reason for the aliens of various races to be here is to conquer us in their own individual ways, It also would seem the
primary reason for this is that they need either DNA to sustain their race, or they need the planet itself as their own is desolate.
Now what seems odd about the later issue, is if such an advanced species that can cross the galaxy so fast seems to think that this planet is the only
place they can survive, then what chance do we stand of colonising other worlds without massivly futuristic terraforming technology?
We currently spend millions on searching for planets around other stars, and to work out their compositions and if they could sustain life, but if
these super advanced races have to turn to this planet then surely no (class M) planets exist in this corner of the galaxy?
Which brings me to wonder if even if we survive this "alien threat" are we still doomed to the same fate as them, by overpopulating ourselves in a
universe that has no place for us to live?
On the other hand, mere percentage would dictate that there has to be thousands of planets capable of sustaining life, and that coinsidence that this
is the only one is just mathematicly wrong. So what is so special about our rock, for a species to go to so much time and effort to take it over?
Hmm it seems i've gone and let my mind wander a little too much.
