Why is it that Aliens are Depicted as Humanoid Looking Mostly?
The so-called alien abductees also report aliens as being humanoid looking. Can a species that evolved light years away end up looking humanoid? Couldn't they have tentacles and look more like an Octopus than a human? Possible, isn't it? What do you think?
With no hands and opposing thumbs it would be difficult to do a lot of things even if beings could imagine them in their minds. Maybe they've had to invent machines they can control that can do the things we can do because of our opposing thumbs, but which they can only do with help from the machines . . .
The chance that intelligent beings will look human-like is just as likely as their not looking human-like.
It's possible that what people are seeing, if they really have been abducted, is a space suit of sorts. Maybe the being inside the suit would not be visible in our spectrum of vision and humans can only see, and be aware of it's existence, because the space suit is visible.
There really is no end to the possibilities that our human brains are not yet capable of comprehending. Trying to imagine a being that could do the things humans can do, and do even more besides, and do everything much better, is like trying to imagine a color you've never seen There may be many possibilities that lie outside the laws of existence that we know and understand.
Species will evolve to their environment. We are special because we are self aware, and we have thumbs. It is likely that any species will need their own kind of "thumb" to achieve what we have.
There have also been many species of humans in the past, they even may have discovered a new one just last week. They were all similar to us - evolved from the same source of course, but they didn't evolve in a drastically different fashion...because our form fits our role the best.
It's hard to believe that an advanced alien civilization could look like an octopus. While they may be able to use tools - it is in a primitive fashion. They'd have to evolve a LOT more to reach a physical form fitting for a species of space travelers.
I truly believe that if we ever do meet another advanced civilization in the universe, that they will have many of the same 'basic' characteristics as us.
reality is what is prooved in all aspects..nothing hidden no assumptions no presumptions, but Imagination have no limits.....everyone is free for keeping themself busy in fanciful imaginations...they can go to any extent!

If you were an alien race, how might you look at Earth?Let me give you some possibilities (although you're not limited to these): 1) A rock with an aggressive, dominant, and suicidal species. 2) A great planet with many resources and no capability of adequate defense. 3) A strange world with people...
