Another important thing to mention, would be that if they are a few evolutionary steps ahead of the human race they would most likely have telekinetic abilities (the next logical evolutionary step up from us) and therefore may not need to 'fly' the craft at all, but simply crontol it telepathically. Why would telekinesis be the next logical step? Surely its more likely that we develop fatter and rounder arses and lose all our fingers except two which we use for typing, not to mention getting sicker and stupider.

What in the world would make you think this? If you don't have a need for something you don't develop it. Especailly non existant psi powers.

I think an intellegent spacegoing species could look like just about anything. Even a jelly could have some kind of manipulation and senses. All it really takes is enough braincells and a drive to use tools.

The natural world around me in which spiders can sense danger before it happens (no I'm not talking about Spiderman), in which salmon manage to find their way back to the very same river in which they spawned,in which identical twins can sense when the other is upset or hurt, even though they are hundreds of miles apart. After all, the concept of evolution is based around 'survival of the fittest' and whilst E.T's would break the...

Coffee table aliens....Pfft! That's just silly! Reclining chair aliens are much more likely to exist. IMO, if what this "person" claims is true then it would stand to reason that humans would project most aliens to be more physically appealing than we are, that is human nature. Not 3 foot tall, leather skin, giant bald heads and eyes bigger than a colossal squid. "We" see ourselves as superior and therefore an advanced civilization would be an improved projection of that, most specifically where it regards physical appearance.

to quote the article: i do not fully agree with this. u dont need to have an endo skeleton or skin, or opposable digits to be able to achieve technological superiority even if you are intelligent enough. take the insect, an ant for example. it may be small, but it is extremely adaptable, even on par with us humans, why? they do not have fingers or hands like we do, but they have jaws that allow them to lift heavy objects, a tough exoskeleton to withstand environmental dangers and keep it from going 'SPLAT' when it falls from a height. the tentacle is another example of how a creature without f...
