I am the mother of a little boy who is currently obsessed with space and the wife of a man who is fascinated by aliens and UFOs. Talk of aliens comes up a lot here.
So, why can’t aliens look just like us? Do they have to be blobs? Blue? Have tentacles? Have super strength? Be radioactive? Have antennae?
Aliens touch movies, art, and books, and probably many more areas I’m not awake enough to think of right now. Sometimes they have a humanoid look. Sometimes they don’t. I watch Star Wars with my husband because we only have 1 TV and see human after human with some odd creatures mixed in. I watch PJ Masks with my son where Luna Girl is clearly not from Earth, but she sure looks like a little girl.
My son has a fascination with space, which means I read a book of space facts to him every day. It reminds me the universe is massive and contains so many galaxies.
Surely, there must be life on other planets. And who’s to say there isn’t some weird alien creature hiding out in the gases of Neptune and we’re just not advanced enough to discover them?
And why can’t aliens look just like us, be just like us? What if, somewhere far out there, there’s another mom pondering this same thing?!
I seriously ask this sometimes. But today I’m tired, so it’s literally the only question rattling around in my head.
Though I suppose it’s possible every other life form could hear with their feet and eat with their ears.
Thoughts? Or am I just nuts?
