I am interested in seeing how many of you believe in advanced life on other planets
According to my thinking, the best way to explain something that you aren't aware of meticulously, is via similitude.
First of all, let's have a look at our planet. Now, what do you see?
The answer is: a universe. A biodiversity of different species almost everywhere and an advanced civilization showing its presence at every fold of
life (do they look like Gods in contradiction to fenceless animals the way Gods are in contrast to humans?- mere a hypothesis). The terrans.
Let's look deeper and set our eye upon an ant colony (bivouac).
Ants are considered to be civilized and its true. They have ranks with each of them to specialized in several phases of the ant-community:
~Queen: linked to the colony's reproductive cycle
~Majors (soldiers):patroling nearby areas for ant-caravans and garding the nest entrance
This remind us a little bit the human role attribution.
Now, let's give a name to our bivouac and call it ''planet earth''. We scan the area of six-square-miles and we spot the nearest bivouac 2000
metres away from the original one with the given name ''planet earth''. Watching with human eyes its a distance of 2000 metres. Watching from the
''eyes'' of ant (ants do not have eyes) it should shound a distance equivalent to our distant measurments of light years. (mere a hypothesis). The
ants (i am taking the example of Eciton Burchelii) are travelling 50 metres away from the bivouac meaning that there is a distant of:
2000-50-50=1900 metres of ''void. Just imagine the ants saying to themeselves: Are we alone? Of course around there there are other species as well:
birds, bugs, caterpillars,spiders,gazelles, e.t.c.
Is it possible life has evolved on other planets?
As beings we have acclimatized to breath air using our langs and refining oxygen, which is such an important igredient for life. Other species have
adapted to breath using branchia. Let's ake a sci-fi example:
We have Jupiter, an air giant. It is fact, storms and cloud are in a constant turmoil and can't see what is below. What if there is a civilization
hidden and adopted to use in such conditions safe for them, poissonous for us?
Another point is why have they not made contact with us
Let's return at the previous example of bivouac. A human (being from advanced civilization) with many ants around him? Despite we are more advance
tecnologically, can we speak with ants? No. Then, why would aliens do? Firstly, they have to study us, as an ant-scientist do. They have to experiment
upon us, to observe our everyday life (as it might be happening with UFO), to abduct us in order to study us in their laboratories and why not cut us
into pieces to take an idea of our inner body-structure. Or, why not cause some cataclysms to see our reactions, as the ant-scientist do filling the
bivouac with water?
Also is there some kind of coverup concerning what the government know about advanced life on other planets
I think that it is also pending the theory of propaganda. Who know if these UFO are a scientific invention from humans and the responsible government
is trying to cloak its excistence for the reason of ''national security'' and trying to attribute the sightings to Exraterrestials?
Is it just as likely they could be hostile as much as being peaceful?
Well, it depends. See earth around. Hostility is active as long as it serves a purpose. For example, ants are attacking another colony to steal foood
which they cannot find it and want to survive from starvetion. If aliens follow that example, they probably haven't come to earth becouse they do not
need our natural resources yet.
*this is not a reason to deplete our planet from them in the name of industry, economical dynamism and quick profit*
