I was browsing around on line. I stumbled upon images of various life forms on earth. Here are just a few of them.

It seems strange to me that with so much variety in life forms most people only picture aliens to look similar to humans or insects.

Just a thought to ponder.

An obvious answer might be that single-celled organisms or small sea creatures would probably be unlikely to develop technological civilisations that would enable them to construct interstellar spacecraft. Therefore, you might expect the higher forms of life (in terms of evolution, at least) to be the ones that would be most likely to visit another planet, if that was indeed at all likely.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

IIRC the argument is - "predators need to adapt more quickly to survive, therefore they're more likely to become the apex creature, and therefore develop intelligence at a faster rate. Predators on the whole have binocular vision(forward facing eyes). They have aparatus for sensing smell and sound all centrally located near the eyes and mouth. A mouth on a neck means you can position your body securely on land but get into a kill and to move the head without moving the body means you can be a better stalker. Being bipedal means you can dedicate some of your paws to other uses such as making and carrying tools"

Any bipedal creature with manipulative extremities and sensory input features on a head are going to look humanish because we have hands and a head with eyes, ears and noses.

How do you feel one of those creatures would kick of an Industrial revolution?

Hi Big D

I can't see one of these things even making a decent BBQ though, can you? They have no way to smelt metals and manipulate objects. I think they are adapted to suit their environment where as we adapt our environment to suit us.

Maybe we just cant see the subatomic B.B.Q grill on one of the planets orbiting inside of one of the electrons that make up one of those creatures ? OR was that MIB movie I was watching just a movie ? LoL.
One thing is for sure ! I think the Aliens were flying all thru Texas today !  I seent-em ! :innocent:

I reckon they just stick around volcanic vents and cook up prawns! Why move from that, it's a perfect life!

That is AWESOME and even that is an understatement. I love the Shuttle car! Is that where you and MID parked it when Sally let you take it for a spin? You gotta lay of the He3!

There may be a wide range of different alien species, but they all look the same to me. :alien:

If there really are aliens, perhaps we are the aliens and that would be why they resemble us.

In a sci-fi movie, i don't remember which one now, it was suggested that many races look the same because like a rain drop is the most efficient form for falling water to assume, this humanoid shape is likewise, the most efficient one to form....
*shrugs*

i don't really agree.
