E.T's, do they have 'fun'?

So while I've been reading and watching several different theories on E.T.'s, something I've always wondered is whether they have fun together? Like we have music, dancing, games, snowboarding, cinema's etc.

Everything 'written' about alien societies seems so serious and all for achieving some sort of enlightenment. Is having fun futile once you progress up the spiritual ladder? Seeing what energy boosts people get from having fun, that seems hard to believe...

I have long thought that maybe ET's having "fun" was the whole explanation for the rash of abductions, sightings, cattle mutilations, etc... We don't really know anything about any alien culture. I feel that it is entirely possible that these things that are (allegedly) happening could be the product of "bored teenager" aliens. Sneaking out, stealing dad's UFO on a friday night, cruising to some backwater planet, picking up a few of the locals and prodding at them for fun, then cruising back home hoping that dad didn't notice the dent in the hyperdrive relay flux capacitor.

Now, I don't subscribe to this belief personally, but I do see it as a definite possibility.

In regards to the direct question by the OP, I personally think fun is an essential part of any meaningful existence. So unless these aliens have progressed or evolved to be almost completely mechanical and soullessly logical, then I would assume that "back home" they must surely have their own version of parties, dance halls, etc.

I don't see why aliens can't have fun. It would depend on what type of alien though. If it's some sort of artificial intelligence from another world, then it might not be programmed to understand fun. Also, some aliens might find different things fun.

Sounds a lot like Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy....
with maybe some added nastyness.

Guessing whether aliens can have fun from a human perspective it in my opinion is almost impossible. Aliens are alien after all, an unknown quantity.

But if we look at animals, they have the capacity for fun, not just smart animals like dogs or primates, but smaller less intelligent animals which we don't really consider close to humans emotionally can exhibit enjoyment from activities (fun) as well. So it's probable that all beings which are capable of feeling stress must be capable of having fun to counterbalance this.

It could just be that in this instance that aliens do indeed have fun, but their fun is derived from completely different things. I've heard people who claim to have been around alien greys, say that they do indeed have a sense of humour, albeit a strange and perverse one, that finds humour in our distress.

Of course they have a sense of humor:

1. They keep us confused & dumb founded all of the time. Constantly re-guessing & repressing our own thoughts, causing anxiety.
2. They make entire governments & minions lie out their bleeding noses in order to deny their very existence!
3. They make fools of NASA in front of our eyes. We watch replays & are later convinced by others that it was a glitch or lens flare.
4. Look a cow in the face when something as small as a humming bumble bee whizes by...yep, aliens use fear as humor. All be it twisted nonetheless.
5. They must play games & set wagers to see which one can cause the worst human psychological damage. Giggling, laughing & snickering all the way across a bent time continuum. So we are left in a jar much like a glow bug caught by a blithering 9 year old.
6. And then it's our own pet cats & dogs that depend upon us who fare far worse than ourselves. Afterwards, they fear their own shadows & hide under the bed for life, while we humans reason it all away as "heat inversion or reflective swamp plasma or the like."

The list is virtually endless...

In the end we are over medicated, overcooked egg nogs that are talked about at employee Christmas parties as not fitting in. We get Obsessive Compulsive Disorder from being on the net as ATSrs. Then paranoid anti-everything's that are so dysfunctional that the government's secret security program agencies have to monitor our every keystroke on line.

So the aliens are toasting marshmallows in our interdimensional backyards & laughing their little narrow @&&3& purple.

We just as well pass the tin foil hats out to our imaginary friends & have a make believe party. Then we'll all gather around & LOL at ourselves!

first off, what is the "spirutual ladder" thats such a defintionless term that it makes no sense and depending on which new age type you ask there is different standards and alleged abilities one gains when they make it to the top.As far as the fun question why not??


This is another problem in the UFO research arena and I dont get why people do this, If, and I repeat IF UFOs are indeed alien space craft, why do some make out that alleged aliens to be some sort of unheard of above us sort of concept, as if he aliens were beings above the rest of the universe almost as Gods or just under. They wouldnt be

If UFOs are alien craft, the alien pilots are just people, who come from a different planet. They look and function differently but they are people no less, it would be no different then if us as humans had interstellar flight technology and visited some inhabited planets.

Aliens are just people, from somewhere other then Earth. They arent these quasi elite beings that people make them out to be.

With respect, you're guessing the nature of an alien species based on the human paradigm. We can not say anything with certainty about a supposed alien species til we meet them and find out about them.

I have read in quite a few abduction stories, that one of the aspects of humans that they are interested in is our emotions including humour. It has come up a number of times that it is our emotional capability that stand us apart in the universe. I have no evdience for this except that it has been reported numerous times and seems to be a consistant theme. I have even heard it siad that the seek to "listen into" our emotions as it is like a "buzz" for them....

I hate to be a killjoy but this tacky vox pop stuff is really for BTS. We should be using Aliens & UFO's for serious matters that advance the research.

Good lord. Is this what we have come to? Instead of discussing evidence, we are discussing this? Yet another reason why this field is a laughing stock.

I know they play a game like Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but it's call Probe the Human in the Rectum. I'm sure you can figure out how it's played.

Ok sorry. Seriously though, they play holographic chess I think.

Wow... it's a good question but I think in the absense of any real stories or evidence that relate to this, this topic was dead before it began. Nice thought though.

Solid proof of alien life needs to be shown before we can begin theorizing about their social activities.

Smart thinking.

You go do that, I'll stay here and post on ATS.
