Do you believe in Aliens?
I don't know but I hppe they're real. That would be really awesome.
I believe there are different life forms out there.
Right? I mean the universe is so huge. It'll be ridiculous if we were the only ones to exist.
I wonder if any lifeforms out there would be as intelligent as us though. More intelligent even? We seem like an anomaly though, there aren't many animals on our own planet that come close to human intelligence, nevermind alien planets.
I like to believe so.
Although I think humans would be the invaders and not the invadee?
Yes but I have doubts about whether UFO sightings and alien abductions are extraterrestrial in nature or not. I'm pretty sure at least some of the craft that are spotted are just secret government shit. Maybe there's something to do with aliens but maybe they had a much bigger military tech boom during/after WWII than they've ever let on.
I think alien abductions are related to historical reports of faeries and that they may be the same beings, but I can't hazard a guess as to what kind of beings they are. It could also be they're a hallucination or some other neurological effect tied to a very specific kind of experience, in the same way that people commonly report seeing tunnels and bright lights on DMT/during NDEs, but also kind of like McKenna's machine elves. I don't know what experience would trigger that, but it'd have to be something that people have had for centuries. Part of me wants to say that they're being victimized by someone and that their brain makes up a story about aliens/faeries to protect them from the trauma, but some of the abduction stories are so damn weird I'm hard put to explain them away like that. Group abductions like the Coronado abduction are pretty hard to write off.
When I was a kid, I used to fantasise about what I'd tell the aliens in order to convince them that we're intelligent and not kill us lol. Maybe write a few lines in different languages, draw some star constellations, draw things you can only see under a microscope like plant cells or dust mites, write a few lines of poetry, draw a map of my country with all its mountains and rivers… I think if I was an alien, I'd have so much fun trying to figure out what all these symbols and drawings mean. It would show them that even a random child has a basic understanding of the world around them and that we've created these complex ways of speaking to each other and that we can create beautiful art. I always prayed that I'd be the first to make contact and not some shitty adult who would try to kill or exploit them.
