Well if aliens are really alien. Then we cant guess anything about how they look or how they evolved. By alien, I mean not carbon based.
But our two eyes are steroptic. It for hunting, depth perception. Two limbs is from moving up right. Giving us idle hands and means to make tools.
Meat, is what drove our brian to get bigger. It was hunting that did that.
We evolved to use tools and eat meat. We evolved means to to do both very well. Those means allowed us to have everything we have now.
Its not exactly silly to assume that something similar didnt happen on another planet. From what we can tell, we are a successful species and other
would have developed in similar fashions.
I know this is an incredibly simplified evolution explanation.
The other way to look at it, and has much the similar reasoning. Human like thinking we are awesome. So if another creature exist. They must something
like us to be as successful. We do the same for things that scare us. We give the triats of animals we know that scare us to one ultimate scary
creature. The Greys are combination of both. Things that are like us and things we find scary. The big soulless eyes. Arms legs. Big head. They are
aquanted with things we find undsible in humans to have. Hairless, in spots we like to see hair. No ears, or nose. No lips. Pot Belly. It like a
Its a combination of what we find scary but can accept to be out betters in certians things, as they are like us.
