From our perspective, we are an average sized species, and the universe is ultra massive. Kinda like an ant, in a football stadium....Now try switching it up. Perhaps, the Earth's not even huge at all, perhaps, were just really, seriously tiny to the point that we don't even exist in a galactic scale. Ever thought about that?

It makes you think, if aliens ever make physical contact, how much bigger or smaller will they be compared to us? In this fractal paradox of a nature, there really are no limits.

I always imagined them being comparable in size to us. In that show Ancient Aliens they talk about how Aliens are god and it says in the bible that god designed us in his image (im paraphrasing of course :) ), so always imagined them pretty similar to us. Plus If you believe in Parallel Universes (multiverse) then they would be the exact same as us, which is a possibility.

The link doesn't work for me, but I'm assuming it's to Carl Sagon video? If its not I'm recommending everyone looks him up

I was thinking this EXACT same thing. I just couldn't explain it as well as you did. Touché.

Dude...This BLEW my mind. Im inspired. Just started following you on youtube and posted this on my facebook. I hope the whole wolrd see's this. Its time for a new refreshing mind set. Sorry I wrote so much. Just had a nice j of my medical shit and I felt the need to share. :-D

I hope so too man.

This is a mere summary, there's too much to cover. And that's exactly my point, there's so much out there to learn and uncover, but people are oblivious.

You asshole. After watching this video, not only was my life changes but I went on a very long chain of internet researching and found my self reading articles of peoples DMT trips. I'm satisfied with my findings but I totally just killed 4 HOURS

Dude we are that small! There are suns that make our sun look like a little bitch, like a spect of dust. And then galaxies are bigger than that it's insane man

I can explain this. There are smart people who smoke weed. Another reason to legalize it but regardless...
Everything in our universe is composed of mostly the same molecules. If an atom has 6 protons it is carbon. It takes on the properties of carbon. If it gains a proton, it takes on the properties of nitrogen. There simply can't be an atom in our universe that if it had 6 protons it would take on the properties of Uranium, let's say.

So if each planet is composed of the same elements as our planet, we can expect that the same kind of life can evolve from it. Clearly not at the same rate, because aliens definitely were created before us to have the capacity to travel how they do. But even so. The only physical difference between Earth and other planets is size and heat because chemically we'd be the same.

So, now this leads us to the size of aliens. Disregarding the heat aspect because this goes off on a tangent about the greater amount of natural selection that occurred-- size of planets matters greatly. We have 1 G of gravity on Earth. But a planet twice our size would have 2 G's. So the lifeforms there would short and stumpy, with small limbs. Perhaps even there is such great gravity that they have no limbs (think snakes). Then compare those two examples to a planet half our size. There would be half the gravitational pull so aliens would be tall and skinny with long limbs and long fingers.

Now, just like we have to synthesize gravity, I'm sure aliens would have to too. They don't survive for more than a few days on our planet. The question remains then, let's say there is a spaceship containing aliens that are all the size of the US. There must be a limit to the gravity level they can sustain because we never come into contact with aliens that size. If those aliens CAN exist considering how small the planet they would live on and the lack of resources available to evolve, they surely can't sustain life on a planet like ours because we have far too much gravity and they could collide into us like a meteor.

I agree with almost everything but gravity doesn't necessarily dictate the size of animals, otherwise Earth wouldn't have such diverse life forms. It's actually, the bigger the planet, the larger life forms that it can sustain. The Dinosaurs were possibly the largest species' that Earth could sustain. Limbs are also not necessarily a trait shared between Earth species and aliens. What if aliens were so obscure that we wouldn't even recognize them as living. They could be made of gasses for all we know

Reminds me of Horton Hears a Who.. That Dr. Seuss, he had it all figured out.

I watched this thing that showed the sun on a scale with other stars, and compared to the largest known star in the universe, the sun was less than a pigment on the screen, virtually invisible. It's unimaginable how small we are in the big scheme of things.
