Why Aliens will look like Earthlings

January 10, 2019

Why will ALIENS almost surely look like EARTHLINGS?

Two words, CONVERGENT EVOLUTION – in this case it works for two planets!

For life to start there must be a planet in the Goldilocks zone. That includes a temperature range that allows for liquid water.

But it must also have a certain atmosphere.
When the planet is too big, like Jupiter, it has the wrong atmosphere. When the planet is too small, like our Moon, it doesn’t hold in an atmosphere. Wrong atmosphere, wrong chemistry – no life.

That means that life planets always have THE SAME GRAVITY!

That means that the life on those watery planets with the same gravity will have life that faces the same natural selection as our planet.

That means that life anywhere will evolve to the best ways to: SWIM, WALK, FLY, and BURROW!

Convergent evolution means they will come up with virtually the same solutions to how to best swim, walk, fly, and burrow, that life did on Earth.

SO, if aliens are ever found, they should be much the same as life on Earth – CONVERGENT EVOLUTION!

Suggestion – the over washing or over medication of our bodies harms or destroys our microbiome, the good bacteria that protests us from diseases.

WIS – Should I add This Poem

July 1, 2017

Dear Reader, my sci-fi novel Writings in Science, a History of the Future, is finished and out there for all to read. But in the 2nd ed. should I add this poem?

sew me up
a shinning star
with a helium needle
and hydrogen thread

sew me up
a galaxy cluster
with a stout
gravity ray.

sew me up
all that is
over the voids
and around the edges.

Novel (two poems)

June 15, 2017

novels meander
with excess fat
short stories are lean
and all is taut.

a novel is
spilled paint
a short story is
a single line.

What a Day (Astronomy Poem)

May 19, 2017

What a day
when he figured it out –
Not a star cluster
within our galaxy
but its own
with another behind it
and another and another
and a field of them
that seemed to stretch
back and back further.
