UFO's anyone?

Actually there is nothing unidentified about any of these flying objects.

They just have that shape!

These are shepherd moons of saturn. They "shepherd" some of the rings of saturn and that is how they get their characteristic shape. They had a more or less spherical core that has collected and accumulated ring material around their "waist". Hence the characteristic UFO shape of the larger and likely much older ones.

If there's one thing that I hope for in my life, it's that we get to straight up meet some aliens. I can't think of anything that would be cooler, whether they kill us or not. But I err on the side of they'd just take pity on us for being so stupid, so I wouldn't be that worried.

I don't know that I agree with you, @matt-a, as I believe even though people do stupid things sometimes, we are the ultimate and most perfect form of life that exists no matter where you will look :)

I cannot agree with that. If you look out your window and into the sky and think about the vast, infinite universe that is right there in front of your eyes, to think that we're the most supreme is like asking a new born baby how to speak your native tongue (impossible).

We aren't alone and we surely aren't the most intelligent.

I like your holistic thinking approach, but you are making some assumptions in your conclusions there..like assuming a newborn baby can't speak. Now I know that that sounds absurd, but please do realise that to some, so do your views on alien life. Both have never been proved so both can't be assumed without being strongly biased

Lol, what? A newborn baby cannot speak. That isn't an assumption, it's a fact.

It doesn't make me biased by saying "a newborn baby does not come out of the womb speaking a language on any level, especially not a specific one."

This is one of the most silly interactions that I've had on Steem.

There is no general supremacy to be had, and nothing real to measure 'perfection' against. Ultimate completely misses the mark in terms of life forms.

When it comes down to it, life is chiefly just a convolution of how the sun's light reflects off of the earth, save for some interesting exceptions who fall in the minority. Even those are driven by other equally mundane phenomena, like the rusting of iron.

When I see the night sky, I'm given to thinking that there are likely other slimy patches out there somewhere in that whole wide everything. Even if that slime stands up, like it did here, it's still just plain old slime.

Our intelligence is merely self proclaimed. In spite of all our moving mass and energy around in ways we say are clever we're nothing but plain old organisms, through and through. To use a witless pun, it's inalienable.

There's no reason aside from whim to say a human is more or less metaphysically significant than the nonhuman goop in it's gut that supports it's life or the tree it's shading itself under and trading breath with. It's arbitrary to say so.

Given the aforementioned lack of evidence, it truly might be that this is the one and only slimy film out there, and I'd admit my surprise at that revelation.

On the other hand, what we mean when we say intelligence may very well have no meaning whatsoever to whatever we would find out there.

It would be rad to meet aliens though :)

@matt-a @cngrobler

Interesting pun @gavvet! Strange though how things in space always gather and get bigger as it goes through stuff, whereas here on earth that tends to break things down

Wow did you see it..

Thats one HUGE mothership!

I believe in UFO ship because I saw many times in my own eyes. One time experience was very near to my place and above on my head when I was a kid at age of 13 years old and estimate far was 25 meters away only!

But of course, I believe in God who made this all things... 😊😊😊

I saw a very big butt crack. Hahahah!
