It was a theory I came up with some time ago based on several historic events. Mainly, so many religions and cultures talk about how we "fell". Even
the bible has the Nephilim. Fallen angels who fell and bred with man. Why is this universal? Scientifically aliens should not be very smart. As if
they were as smart and fast developing as us, they would be just as unstable as us. There would be wars seen everywhere. And at a galactic stage, a
war is like a global thermo nuclear war many times over. Yet we see none of this. Because of the infinite nature of the universe, there should be
infinite types of creatures. Therefore there will always be fighters and peace keepers. So the wars would not be everywhere. Just between the arms of
the galaxy (these arms are the only obvious borders for the galaxy, equivalent of mountains and seas on a planet. So because we are not near the edge
of an arm, and see no wars, they must therefore be internally peaceful. Any such species cannot be like man, for internal conflict is part of being
man. They would, of course, want man's brain. But once hybridizing, they would condemn their own nation. So thus there must be a galactic dark age
right now, or at least locally within our own arm. In addition, the fact that these aliens are ALWAYS portrayal with the same abilities and
technologies shows that they advance slowly. After all, look at out own society. Exponentially advancing. Why would they flat line unless they simply
cannot advance as fast as us?
Going on with this same theory, I even went on to think about what would be the dominate nation? I theorized that the age and vast knowledge of these
slowly, stably advancing aliens, when met with the fast past unstable human hybrids, would bring about untold advancements. This would undoubtedly
open up some peaceful branches of advancing hybrids amidst the now broken nation of their creators. These would open them up to all the universe.
So now we apply the next level. With the whole universe, only th every best species contacted will ultimately survive. What is the most advanced? It
would have to be a spices with a single consciousness, so that decisions are instantaneous. They would have sacrificed all or most of their flesh over
time for machine due to mechanical superiority. They would also be able to do insanely cool things, such as loop energy and mass through time (IE,
generate energy, and then loop it back in time to the moment before the energy is used, thereby allowing the same energy to be used multiple times
over at the same moment. Useful energy via a time paradox) Other insane things as well, such as being able to tell its past self of future attacks via
a time messenger device, making it essentially immortal. Such awesome things would give them infinite energy and mass available. It would be a god.
In time the hybrids would make contact and they would in turn start a war via the simple fact that the hybrids would want it and the singularity
species would want more experience and genetic material to analyze and better itself. The only course of action would be to first disable this
creatures temporal messenger device so it would not know the hybrid's next action. Then the hybrids would have to disable this creatures main
processing planet. Essentially its brain. After that, it's micro robot entities that would invade would have to be destroyed via gluon , or
antimatter bombs. Ultimately a scorched galaxy policy.
That's just a story I might write though.
Additionally, I thought up the only types of aliens that might exist:
Good genetic types that peacefully take the dna of species they like to make themselves better.
Bad above species that absorb and eliminate the species they like (a la Mass Effect's reapers. Ask me about this if you want to know more)
Good religious/cultural type that spread their way of life.
Bad above that force it.
Good unfathomable creature not able to be understood but understanding of this.
Bad above that hates those who do not understand it and destroy.
There cannot really be any other type of alien because of the fact that resources are not interesting when a resource-full galaxy is all around you
and the desire for power is useless as it is impossible to rule infinity.
Just some more thing sot think about, if you would like to fit into place some sort of ancient alien and what type they might have been, Personally I
believe that the most likely is a combination of the above bad religious/cultural and genetic type because a peaceful version of them. would have made
contact already. the bad one has either been destroyed by the hybrids I mentioned, or simply not have found us yet. The idea that the whole world
would become fearful if the good types arrives is folly, as they would be advanced enough to know how to stop such panicking. IE, influencing dreams,
eliminating weapons, etc etc. If they truly were good, they would desperately feel saddened over our consumption of our own species and desperately
try to stop it directly. The bad type would either laugh and watch, not care, or been destroyed already by us, or plotting this very moment.
