Four Types of Aliens?

October 1, 2019

There may be only Four Types of Aliens

Start with this likely premise. Life starts the same way as it did on Earth and it’s based on carbon chemistry.

That means it most likely requires the following:

1. Liquid water.
2. Temperature range that allows for liquid water, 0-100 C
3. Earth size gravity that holds in the correct atmosphere and gases needed to start life.
4. Plate tectonics and land to allow for a shoreline.
5. Sun/star to provide heat in a day night cycle.
6. Natural selection that leads to the type of social behavior that leads to high intelligence.

Those requirements suggest that life planets will have most of these 4 basic biomes; water, air, land, underground.

Convergent evolution suggests that there are basically 4 ways to best survive those 4 environments.

That means that advanced aliens are either:
1. Swimmers – like advanced dolphins or sea dwellers
2. Flyers – like advance birds or air dwellers
3. Walkers – like advanced hominids or land dwellers
4. Burrowers – like advanced gophers or underground dwellers.

Comments? For more speculation, see my two sci-fi novels.
