Alien civilisations

If we got in touch with an alien civilisation, what do you
think they would be like? I wonder if they would have what
we have, like male and female, penis and vagina, eyes, ears,
five senses, etc. Would they walk on two legs? Do they have
spiders? Do they have dinosaurs and lizards etc? Or would
they be something original and completely different. Obvs
this question is open ended because we have no proof.

I mean, how would you imagine an alien civilisation?

I don’t know but I like thinking about it.

I’ve come to the conclusion that all our attempts at
creating aliens are a always influenced by earthly things.
Usually insects or deep sea fishes, or something humanoid.
Slimy things work as well.

i had a book when i was younger... it had great speculative
sci-fi paintings and a blurb by patrick moore to go with
each, and one of the double page spreads had thousands of
alien gas-bag things floating around in the atmosphere of an
imaginary exoplanet. i wish i could find it now

in conclusion, it'll probably Be Really Weird

whatever they look like, they want our women. I mean, that's
just science.

They want our women, and our land (in this case: planet).

Belb, imagine being really disappointed at how bland they
look, on that day.

I think a lot about this, considering how varied life on our
own planet is, it stands to reason their will be quite a
variety out there

it'd be like seeing something for the first time when you
were a baby. it would be a real shock. imagine being the
first generation to contact aliens. we would be the most
lucky people that ever walked on this planet. unless later
generations get to have gay sex with giant alien tentacles.
horse size dido's ain't shit next to a giant tentacle alien

the question is how would space travelling lifeforms look
i mean, as diverse as life is on earth we can imagine
anything alike on other planets. but if it comes to making
tools or spaceships it begins to become interesting. well we
know how us bipedals did it, but can you imagine maybe
insect like aliens with an exoskeleton, that could live even
on asteroids in the cold voids of space?
or beings that are capable of changing their dna actively
during their lifespan to adapt to any environment they
travel to, without any external technology? lets picture a
small swarm of intelligence that somehow spreads over a
landscape thus transforms to a gigantic radio telescope to
take a peek into the universe and suddenly decides to form a
jet propulsion and takes off to the next planet in their
system, adapting to this new environment and then processing
all the materials off that new world to form a bigger
lifeform that expands this whole planet, that transforms
part of it to look deeper into the universe and finally to
develop means to even interstellar travel?

I do like the idea of "Challenged of the Stars". Meet the
most underwhelming specimens the universe has to offer.

Are we in that book?!?!?
