There are some really good posts in this thread that send the mind spinning. Lots of this stuff I always think of, but dont really say out loud
because people might think I'm crazy lol.
But yah, why can't a certain 'lifeform' breathe some other known substance? Fish breathe water (well...oxygen I guess, via water) and we breathe
air to get our oxygen. Maybe there are otherworldly creatures that eat rocks for a certain element they need to survive. Who knows?
Personally I love imagining 300 foot tall animals with six legs and skinny bodies... Really sends the imagination on a vacation
And think of it this way; we only know about the living and the nonliving (inanimate). What if there are whole other levels or states? I know it's a
long stretch, but like someone said, we don't know everything.
Which brings me to another point...
Imagine hundreds of years ago. The days of knights and castles and poop dropping from 3rd story windows. The peak of their imagination was dragons and
gods. Do you think they imagined what we do? I don't think they would have even known HOW to imagine robots or computers. You cant exactly just
'think up' an iPhone.
Do you think we have reached the peak of our imagination? I mean, what is there left to imagine? Think of a robot...mix with an alien....cyborg. Time
travel, space travel, ghosts, cryptids, interdimensional beings. I honestly cant imagine scientists discovering something and me being amazed.
Scientists discover time travel. It would be cool, but it's not new to me.
What do you think? End of imagination?
