Dogs…disguised aliens

2 years, 1 month ago

Does anyone ever think about how aliens could possibly be disguised as dogs or pets in our homes so that they could study the human way? If alien species are smart enough to travel through space, who’s to say that they aren’t advanced enough to create these animals that we all think of as blissfully innocent pets…sometimes the way dogs look at us seems like they’re seeing right through our souls, and maybe there’s a reason why we subconsciously feel weird about being naked in front of them..

@elemtee, I like this idea. It reminds me of a book that I read when I was a kid, where an alien species that was going extinct transferred their consciousness into dogs. The dogs were regular dogs, not super sentient or anything like that, but it was certainly an interesting explanation for the intelligence of dogs and their bond with humans.

it’s ducks. I’m pretty sure. They even have a name for the sensation. that might tell us that unconsciously we realize we’ve been invaded. Or somebody is maybe sending a message through the dictionary to warn us. Check out Anatidaephobia. The fear that you are being watched by a duck…

@minnaloushe, I’VE HEARD OF THIS BEFORE!!! I always thought this was the weirdest/funniest and strangest phobia because i never understood it, but that connection makes so much more sense now!!

@filipek, not trolling………..btw, i had to urban-dictionary what that meant..hah. we’re only 1% different than chimps in terms of dna. in that 1 percent is our ability to think complexly, create, develop technology, etc etc..what if a species was 1% more intelligent than us, and then another 1% different than them, the possibilities would be endless..

@elemtee, We also share 50% of our DNA with a banana, but that does not mean that we are half banana’s.

@filipek, i think that shows even more so how crazily a little bit of dna can go a long way in terms of progression…i don’t know if it means we’re ‘half banana’ but like, everything is made up of atoms anyway, of stuff of the universe, so we’re all going to be made up of similar dna to an extent i guess as a result… but one mutation or difference in dna can mean huge leaps in intelligence…this dude neil degrasse (you can see it on youtube) explains how, to the perspective of those ‘aliens’, assuming they are that 1% more complex or advanced than we are, may just look at us how we may look at a new species of worms upon the discovery of it (like interested in studying the lifestyle, but too intelligent for us to communicate with)…or like a child. the smartest monkeys can do what human children can do, so maybe the smartest humans that exist are about at the intelligence level of an underdeveloped member of an ‘advanced species’

I get your point, but if these so called aliens of yours would be more intelligent and more developed than we are, why would they magically ‘transform’ themselves into dogs and live their lives as dogs on earth? If they would be more developed and more intelligent than we are, what would their point be to study us and why would they do it in a disguised way? And how would they be able to disguise their intelligence? I mean, the dog brain does not have the slightest possibilities of our brains, how would they disguise this? Would dogs have some kind of super brain which we are not able to find out about? And if those aliens are more developed and intelligent than we are, why would they get into a role of a dog where they are being dominated by us? And how could they possibly study is in that role? How are they collecting, sending, and processing this information? Do they have some kind psychic abilities through which they send their information? If so, this would show itself in some kind of waves, and these kind of waves would already been picked up by our equipment on earth, I mean, you cannot have invisible waves transcending all laws of nature.

I mean, what is it that you really want to know? What is your point?

Sometimes I look at my cats and I’m sure there’s more going on than I give them credit for…and then I realise I am way high and that’s probably not the case.

However, I was thinking about the whole 1% difference in DNA that you’re talking about, and thought how it would be awesome if the next step in evolution for some animals was the ability to have a consciousness and therefore be able to learn to talk. Definitely not saying its happening or is going to happen, just saying it would be kind of awesome.

Yup @ojai, This definitely belongs on high ideas :)

@filipek, I dunno if my point is anything more than the fact that it’s possible…i don’t think from their perspective it would be ‘magically’ transforming themselves. to our level of advancement it would just seem like magic. just like if monkeys were able to think critically about things, they may think that the fact that we inject them with certain hormones/medicines to feel a certain way (when we’re studying their behavioral response) is magic, or if they saw an airplane in the sky, they might find that magic too. it’s just we are a higher level of intelligence that they might not be able to fathom at this point in their brains evolution/development as a species. and if aliens are really that smart, they probably know that being discovered by humans would mean deteriorating our society in terms of religion, etc, and they might not even feel the need to communicate with us (ex. how we will study a rat or a bird or a more basic species, but dont necessarily feel the need to communicate with one)..it just might be THEIR way of doing a “study”, just as we do on earth with other species, observing them in their natural habitats. potentially because dogs (or ducks) are around humans by CHOICE, it would be a good way to see us in our natural lives and homes. i don’t know if ALL dogs would be aliens (like the rhombus/square thing..a rhombus isn’t always a square but a square is always a rhombus).

and i’m not really ‘trying to find an answer’, more just provoke discussion or thought..i have absolutely no idea how to answer this question correctly because who knows what they do, but think about how seemingly impossible it would be to bend space-time and travel light years through to visit other planets. once you can do that, nothing is THAT out of the question i don’t think. there’s been sooo many like, tv shows, speculation in the media, documentaries, etc that aliens have visited us, and that has to come from somewhere. and after theyre here, then what…..

@elemtee, that would be fantastic, if our pets were secretly aliens!!! But realistically speaking, they are not. Why would these aliens want to observe us? Think about it, if an alien race discovered earth and could reach it, I’m pretty sure they would either make contact, or take over. Personally I don’t even think space travel, to that extent, is even possible. Unless they can do some Dune shit and bend space, or move through space time, or they are living in another dimension, but then that doesn’t really affect us anyway.**

I do believe aliens are out there. However, the conditions of life producing planets are so rare and improbable that it is almost impossible that two planets, with life as complex and advanced as ours, are close enough to travel between each other.

It would be ignorant to assume their is no other intelligent species in existence, but that doesn’t mean, they can, or ever will reach us. Maybe, even for the most advanced species inter-solar travel is possible, but I don’t believe inter-galactic travel ever would be ( unless the criteria specified above are satisfied) **. But then again, you don’t know what other species know about space and time.

@minnaloushe is right though, it would definitely be the ducks.

@cristian, Yes. Being silly here. And not very original. I don’t believe dogs or cats or anything else are aliens. I don’t see any proof of it anywhere, thus I make fun of it. Nor can I see how it would change our own existence. The best policy is to treat all animals with respect. Maybe one of them came back as Jesus, you never know.

I’m comfortable being naked in front of dogs or any animal for that matter. I’ve even evacuated my bowels in front of my cat, I don’t care and they don’t care.
