I dont think the idea is that far off, however I think the Alien movies are the most plausible.
MY THOUGHTS ON THE MOVIE ALIENS:
This is my favorite movie, however not for the plot or characters or special effect but for the concept of the Aliens themselves.
When evolution is allowed to run it's course without interruption a dominant species emerges. That species is usually a culmination of every genetic
advantage available in their environment. A species this advanced would be unlike any we have ever seen. If evolution is allowed to go uninterrupted
it can and will produce near perfect creatures. The movie Aliens opens the door to some very broad subjects for those who look into the movie as more
then a simple action flick. The creatures depicted in those movies originally conceived in Gigers Necronomicon series depict an example of perfect
evolution. The creatures are used to show us what may be possible through evolution. It is also to show us that without evolution we can quickly fall
behind and be forcibly removed from our spot at the top of the food chain. I believe these creatures represent what the evolutionary process strives
I believe our intellectual development has halted our own evolution. Rather then adapt to our environment we adapt our environment to ourselves. I
believe that somewhere down the line we will pay a price for not following the path set forth be the process of natural selection.
This may come from outsiders or from within but I strongly believe it will happen. Not only that but I hope it does, all the overweight people who
care more about money then science and are more interested in reality TV then their own physical form will finally have to answer for their actions. I
know it may sound sick but I would grin like never before to see this happen. Many will find this to be a horrible thought but I can't help it I
would love to see terror in the faces of those who have usurped the authority of nature.
The game primal used a great modo, one of the best ones i have ever heard: "civilization is only skin deep"
And I for one would love to watch it topple down. I would love to see people have to rely on their instincts rather then their paychecks to survive.
When you look at a riot that is what we are finally getting out. I am not suggesting complete violence and anarchy simply that instincts should govern
over actions. Our instincts are what make us what we are. We may call ourselves humans and separate ourselves from the animals but deep down inside
that is all we are. We are not special and we are not above the likes of other creatures. We are born of this earth and return to it the same way as
any other living thing.
I do not expect to get support for my views but I do believe strongly in them and appreciate being allowed to express then here for all of you. On a
side note this little rant perfectly articulates my name here at ATS! Thanks for letting me rant a little sorry it was so long.
