They look human. Always human. Never anything else. Auto fail for me on that one.
If it looks human, 99% chance its fake.
Yes but the human form has it's uses, if you were to create any species from a primitive organism on your own planet, even if it started from a 4
legged wolf creature or water based animal/fish creature. Some things in its creation will be the same in shape form and function. Sure you can do
many things if we had tentacle or other weird appendages instead of hands, but a hand is a very useful tool if you think about it even more so then
other appendages one can think of, it can function in many environments in water, gas, or land. Think about it some things in order to progress
require certain forms, to create other forms, I mean how hard would it be to create machinery using paws or tentacles or other appendages. And like
forms are alike in there form and thought's to many degrees.
So if it's a humanoid it tells you a lot about its history, were it came from, and what it's capable of, it's environment, and you can even deduce how
it thinks by what shape it is to certain degrees. Like these so called grey's, they are depicted as small frail and having very light sensitive eyes
for seeing and being in dark places most times, even the eyes tell you they are not a daytime creature, if you look at there form it already tells you
much about them, and there definitely not the most resilient, to frail in body, and it would make sense in that they life underground or in hive
structures or are spaceship helpers.
And to tell you the truth if it's humanoid in some ways it would be like all other humanoid creatures out there. They say some god created us in his
image....well don't be surprised if this god is as flawed and as humanity is, after all we were created in his image. The same could be said if
humanity in some far future creates a creature of it's own, what do you think the steps will be in its appearance and form and thought
patterns?....Even in robotics the goal is to create a human like android, why is that? You sure can create any other form out there that you can
think of it could just be a sphere with a bunch of appendages like robotic tentacles with manipulators on the tip of each tentacle, allowing it to do
pretty much anything humans can do physically, yet everybody wants to create something humanoid. No mystery there why that is so.
So if it's a humanoid entity, it would in some ways be like us, or we would be like them, because form is function in more then just physical
movement, in the way we think as well, it dictates that to great degrees as well. Basically if you meet a truly out of this world creature or alien
and you would not be familiar with it at all, you would be in trouble because you would not know what it's capable of or would do or have any
familiarity with it at all.
But if you meet an out of this world creature or alien that is humanoid, you would still be in trouble because you can guess what it's capable of and
what it would do, because it would follow the same patterns as you would, only in a more unfamiliar manner. So it can stand to reason that a humanoid
would be humanoid in function, and humans are not the most friendliest of creatures out there, and we are a bit prone to stoning or trying to eat
things that are inferior to us. So what would a humanoid alien do, that is the question? compared to unhumanoid creature/alien.
And this whole thing of some aliens eating humans, alzz I can say is.....sometimes you catch and eat the rabbit....and sometimes you are the
It all depends were your at, and in which form.
