Aliens


I am being allowed time out to raise a subject that is dear to my heart (I normally market web sites!).

Is there life out there? Are we alone? How did we get here?

These are the big questions. For what it is worth, I believe there are big bangs happening all the time. The virtually random result from each big bang would produce many universes (I know, a contradiction in terms). The only common factor would be that each started from a burst of energy. In our case, some of that energy was converted to matter, and we are the result. Surely there is no reason why the energy could not have been converted into another phenomenon that our language and our vision cannot comprehend. This may perhaps be a form that is way off the scale of our electromagnetic spectrum, or using a different spectrum altogether.

Should such universes exist we could not observe them as our senses and instruments are tuned to our own universe and not to an alien one. An example of the problem of recording the existence of these aliens is this: what if the aliens did not have the dimension of space in their tool kit? In other words they didn't exist as physical entities at all? You may speculate therefore that perhaps they are made up of protons, or electrical waves? No, even these phenomena would take up some space, and my aliens have no space in which to accommodate anything. Of course it is impossible to describe how they would exist, but perhaps an analogy would be the best thing. Just think about thought and, for a minute, please forget that thought waves themselves take up space. Perhaps our aliens are simply made up of thoughts or notions that whisk around us but have no physical form or a physical home. These thoughts will simply exist around us. The problem is that I have already run into trouble with language. The word "around" suggests space and as I said earlier, a thought in our universe takes up some space. You see, aliens probably do exist, but we cannot record them nor, with the limitations of our language, we cannot describe them. A good example of falling into the trap of our own language is the term "Aliens from outer space". The example I offered would not work, as the words "from", "outer" and "space" would not apply! As we are limited by language, all we have is our imagination.

So, back to the day job. If you are wondering why we are so obsessed about aliens but still can't keep house flies out of our kitchens, help is at hand, below, with our fly killer buy on line web site.
