Some agreement, and some not. I agree that we should look for more than just physical traits (including the not-so-obvious ones). I have mixed
feelings on the idea of aliens in general, though. I do believe there are intelligent beings that are not human, and that they can and do have some
contact with people. Their exact nature is where I might differ in opinion from some.
That aside, I still wonder. I remember some vague comment from my dad regarding two different kinds of people. He didn't mean races as we define
them, but I can't recall any real details. He isn't around now to ask, either. The Zenna Henderson books about "the People" have always been
favorites. In fact, my dad recommended them to me. Hmm.....
There are other things, like the fact (if I heard correctly) that about HALF of the people in the world dream of flying. Why only half? And why
CAN'T we fly when awake?? Those reading this that dream about it surely know what I mean; it's so simple in dreams.
And what about dreams? Did anyone else here ever wonder why people say, "Pinch me, I think I am dreaming."? Never made sense to me. I was quite
surprised, and more confused, when told that people don't feel in dreams. News to ME. I do, and always have. Smell, too, and see color. Always
thought everyone did. Never could find any solid data on the actual statistics, though, and would welcome it of anyone knows where to look. Reliable
Maybe, though, we simply "remember" things that people used to be able to do, and no longer can, due to genetic decay or something. Now that would
be truly sad.
