Hopefully, one day we'll get a chance to meet some of them. See how they live, what they drive, what kinds of animals evolved on their planets, what kinds of ships and planes they fly, what kinds of foods they eat.
It works both ways. If there is a way to escape our island and we find it, we may find species just emerging into intelligence.
Then they might be tasty!
Seriously though, we eat pretty much all species we come across, and I'm sure we would eat alien bacon too.
With that in mind, imagine a species similar to us showing up on Earth. Would it really be that outrageous to believe that they would decide to farm us?
This is a very interesting hypothesis. Who knows how many advanced civilizations have been born, evolved, and became extinct before we were even born?

Excellent response, but aren't you pretty much debunking both methods of panspermia?

I think ive seen too many horror movies to eat lab meat. We eat it and create a monster or zombies or blob you name it. Now seriously i dont think synthetic meat will catch on id say eventually are diet will change and we go yo eating protein bars etc.
Well it would go a long way to explaining the theory that we are genetically engineered slaves. Mainly for gold. And look at "us" all these years later. Working our butts off to earn money [paid slavery], in a system backed by gold. Not the smartest behaviour from an "evolving" species ?
If one can traverse the stars they don't need slaves. They can easily build whatever they want.
If one can traverse the stars they don't need people mining gold either.
Sounds like more "Ancient Astronauts" bunkdom.
Yep there's a giant layer of crap in orbit and beyond when you look to the stars
Solid waste is collected in individual micro-perforated bags which are stored in an aluminum container. Full containers are transferred to Progress for disposal.
Water is everywhere.
Of course, it would have vaporized in the inferno that was the ancient Earth, but it would have introduced the 2 hydrogen 1 oxygen combination that water is based on.
Over 15 amino acids (some of the basic components of life) have been identified in the meteorite. All the amino acids found in the Murchison meteorite have been synthesized in laboratory experiments by the action of electric discharge on a mixture of methane, nitrogen, and water with traces of ammonia.
In less than 100 years we probably will no longer eat animals so it is doubtful that if you can grow lab meat, or synthesize tasty meats and other proteins from their very common and plentiful raw elements (Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen) ie: Star Trek replicator style then WHY would you want to eat a live alien (which could contain god knows what pathogens btw)??? Moral objections aside it seems to make little sense from an energy and resources standpoint.
