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.

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!

The Boy Had Seen A Frightening Movie

November 26, 2015

Still working on my big sci-fi novel titled “Writings in Science”. Here’s a short poem that will be part of it.

THE BOY HAD SEEN A FRIGHTENING MOVIE….

The boy had seen a frightening movie
with aliens pictured as bloodthirsty monsters.
But his father said, “Son rethink your fears.
Listen to me carefully and I will explain.

If they are advanced enough in technology
to travel to Earth then somewhere in their history
they must have discovered the parts of the mind
that work in tandem or conflict sometimes.

And learned how to merge them into one self.
End the inner war, not project it on others,
which ends the conflicts and the violence,
and the need for domination.

In essence if smart they’ve already learned
the technology necessary to live in peace.
And the smarter they are, the more loving they are
because it’s through love that the fittest survive.

And it is love that builds up wisdom
enough to prosper and think up rockets. ”

Where might messages from Aliens be on the electromagnetic spectrum? (new ideas)

May 29, 2013

Where is alien life hiding along the electromagnetic scale? OR most likely to contact us?

Look for life in the electromagnetic spectrum at 260 nm instead of the radio spectrum. DNA bases have an average UV absorbance maximum around 260 nm.
Aliens would know that too.
