THEY are out there.....


Ok, so my blogs since starting this have been of a philosophical nature. Well, I decided to kick back and relax for a bit instead of contemplating the questions we all have asked at one time or another. What did I do?

My 4-year-old son has all of a sudden developed an interest in movies and shows that deal with aliens. Well......while watching ET he asked me a question that struck me as well beyond his years. Seemed funny to me that the thought never crossed my mind. He asked me where ET was from and I proceeded to explain to him that ET wasnt real and someone just made him up. Upon hearing my reply, he wanted to know how someone thought him up if they never saw one before. Of course, those were not his exact words but that was basically what he said.

Of course this got my mind going.....again LOL. I started thinking about everything I know and realized that everything I know came from something that I saw, felt, touched, heard..basically experienced with one of my senses. How can you think of something like aliens without ever having some sort of experience with them??

I know....you're all reading this and saying....IMAGINATION and thinking what kind of weirdo am I? But think of it....imagination is merely an extension or exaggeration of knowledge that we already have. So, where do the non-existent little pieces come from?

And...no! I'm not necessarily saying that I believe in little green men but I do believe that there is or used to be other forms of life out there. The galaxy is infinite and who are we to actually believe that we are that special to be the only inhabitants in this universe??

no it isn't so closly aligned to what we know actually it is inspired yes but not limited by.....

quite possibly it has stemmed from other forms of life visiting...

But the majority of it has stemmed from centuries old folk lore and myths which have stemmed from happenings which could not be explained by the current knowledge of a peoples.....

there is still much in this world we don't know how or why or even what...

but the human condition is that we will seek out and try to explain and understand our world around us.....which is what leads to our inspired imagination and its products.....wether they have any grounding in reality or otherwise....

some of the basis for alien myths are as simple as luminous moss and what truely is natural phenomina......

how many myths and legends surround the northern lights.....

humans see and what to know.....

just as your son did......you close to explain it too him in the sense that it is just a movie.....other parents have chosen to answer their childrens inquisitive questions in other ways.....

have you ever heard of cities in the distance at night being destribed as fairy lights????

in my family they are.......but by the time you get near them the fairies pack up and go, because they are scared of people.....it is a long time before children come to the realisation that the fairy lights are the BIG so much BIGGER city they are driving through the streets lined with rows of lights.....as they cannot see all the lights and the big picture.....just the street lights upon the road they are on travelling overhead.....

If you take a close look at nature there are some pretty strange looking creatures out there. I remember watching a "Blue Planet" documentary about creatures of the deep and thinking they were incredibly alien.
