Most of the topics on this board are about aliens coming to us, governments covering this up, leeching technical advances from them etc etc. However,
as sure as I am that beings far superior to us exist out there in the vast void of the universe, I'm not sure what kind of a world they would inhabit
or what form they would take.
When I think about aliens, I don't think of the typical humanoid shapes that most people think of. I think more of creatures & organisms. We
automaticaly beleive that our calculations saying life cannot be without air & water are certain. Again, I'm reserved on this. I think it is possible
for either less or more advanced lifeforms to exist on other mediums. We know they can because some cave life exists without air and without light.
These are the fundementals for life on this planet, and might not be on others.
When I think of an alien world, I have many perceptions of what one could be like. If life does depend on air & light, then the amount of that might
effect the size of any existing organisms. So in a world with high oxigen & light levels, such as twin suns & constant daylight, life could be
considerably larger. If the planet was static and one side in constant light & one in constant darkness, life could take hugely different forms
depending on what side of the planet it evolved on etc.
When we think about alien life, we must open and bend our minds to the fact that ANYTHING is possible. Life on these worlds will certainly not be like
life on Earth, even if the planet is the same, and even if humans existed there.
It is also very possible that we are not the only planet that supports human life, others could have both devolved and highly evolved versions of us.
Considering some planets have been around billions of years longer than Earth, life on these could be billions of years ahead of us. Some of these
planets are younger, meaning life would be considerably devolved to us.
UFO's could be manned by humans billions of years ahead of us, who've developed means to hyperspace across the universe.
When you think of a far off alien world, what comes to mind?
