I see the occasional post from individuals that insinuate things like, "scientific thinking means you're close minded." I recently was doing a bit of
research on M Theory, and it's almost shocking how incredibly "open minded" some of the worlds leading physicists actually are.
M Theory essentially states that our universe lies within a thin paper like "membrane" in what's called the "bulk." Within the bulk, other membranes
that essentially equate to other dimensions are stacked on top of ours like stacks of paper.
String theory suggests that the most primordial of quantum particles are string-like and not a fixed tiny sphere. These "strings" vibrate in certain
ways and create the well known atomic structures existing in our universe and dimension. Different vibrations open up the possibility that entirely
different dimensions, or membranes, can exist within the space occupied by our universe. In other words, an alien being comprised of atomic particles
in that second membrane could be right next to you, at any given time, entirely out of your perception.
At this very moment, we have brilliant scientists blasting protons at near the speed of light into one another in an attempt to find a graviton, the
particle that carries gravity. What they're actually looking for is a trace that the graviton has moved to a different membrane (dimension) as a
result of the high energy collision.
If these theories are fully proven (and it's certainly looking like it's only a matter of time), it opens a mindblowing amount of possibilities for
the kinds of life that exists in what should more accurately be called the multiverse.
You guys should really check this out, it's EXTREMELY interesting/entertaining and it should change the way you think about alien life. It also does a
good job of instilling a sense of just how infinitesimally "small" we really are:
