Re: Cool..but also oddly disturbing
- They're interested in colonising the galaxy. This "colonizing" thing could be just a human compulsion.
Like us, the aliens would be a product of evolution. They would not be top dogs on their own planet if they did not have a similar drive to expand as humans do. Even if that is not true of all alien species (assuming there are several of them), it takes just one with an urge to colonize.
You might think you are safe to assume these things, but really we're in the realm of such huge unknowns, it would be foolish to.
Of course. I was advancing a theory that to me seems reasonable, but it is quite likely to be incorrect. However, I don't really expect to know it for sure in my lifetime. Possibly we will never know if there really are aliens in our galaxy. That makes the issue fun to discuss...
