Would aliens have DNA? Would their evolution be THAT similar to
Isn't that kind of Star Trekish, and by that I mean an actual plot on
You know, where the first intelligent species to arise in the galaxy
found itself all alone, so it ran around seeding it's DNA everywhere,
like a couple of 14 y.o. boys with a stack of porn mags...
Well if the aliens don't have DNA -- their world followed a completely
different evolutionary model -- if DNA were "Alien" to them, to turn
a phrase, how could they be any good at manipulating it?
I mean, they might be technologically advanced, or so we like to
presume, but they wouldn't be advanced at all in the area of DNA
splicing... they wouldn't even have performed Step-1 yet!
So we have to assume that aliens are just like us in order to envision
them manipulating our species and creating viruses to kill us.
They have to be just like us.
They have to be us.
We are just like us.
So aren't aliens merely our psychological defense, where we externalize
our knowledge of what humans are capable of, our fears of what might
be going on?
Covid19, for example.
We can't face our fears, they're too scary. We get overwhelmed. And
we're too weak powerless. We can't force the 1% too divulge everything
and we don't have the power to stop them even if we knew what they
were doing. So we created aliens... beings on another world... it's them!
They're the ones threatening us! Those aliens!
