Books And Arts About Human

If an extraterrestrial comes to me and ask me for introduction about human, I’ll be surprised. He (OK, I don’t know how to call that intelligent being) literally run into me and speak to me as if it is totally fine in terms of so many conspiracy theories on earth like Mars attacks Earth that cover bad reputations over them. That being said, I should pretend I am cool and recommend some great books and arts that human tell about their own stories.

The first book comes into my mind is The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins. When I started to read that book recommended by some smart people, I was totally astonished by the very new thoughts which describe our inherent genes being self-centred and take what they take. If you wanna start learning about human, start from the inside nature. Here I should stress a point that don’t be misled by the name of the book, it is a way of metaphor, the genes act like a selfish man but in fact they are unintentional.

Then you wanna learn the history of human from thousands of years ago to current time. There is an old saying from Chinese:”Take history as a mirror “, history is important, not only for our human being, but also gives views to aliens. Learn the birth and doom of civilizations, study the life of ancient people in different periods, research how the history was going on and predict the future, those would make something clear.

I am not sure there would be just one movie that conclude all human society and behaviors, it’s better to watch several great movies. What I recommend include Wall E, Forrest Gump, Mary and Max and so on. Those movies cover several themes of human, such as love, future, striving, history, confusion, degeneration, different, imperfection, intelligent and more. There is no one word that would declare what is human about.

As for songs, all pop song lists don’t count. Instead listen to light music, especially New Age music will give you some clews about what is the real art of human.

Well, I think that’s it, that alien life would at least not get himself lost in this new world to him according my recommendations. But what I really want to say is, taking me away with you, please, I’d like to see the wonderful stars and galaxies in universe.

This is today’s prompt, https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/worldly-encounters/

Justifying Aliens’ Existence

The fascinating way of proving something that we can not prove it through actual being or pictures is logic. Examples like ghost, human’s future and extraterrestrial life are unable to directly attest, but with the help of logical power, we can at least have pretty varieties of valid arguments. Because logic itself can’t be wrong, otherwise we are not real, everything we’ve seen and built could be random and inconstant. Without logic, we can not reason, deduce, analysis, argue, persuade, nothing would be done. If we put ourselves in this reasonable fashion, then we are sure to be able to see the truth hidden from common sense.

Now If you are on the same page with me, I am going to justify the very existence of aliens, even the intelligent ones.

1. We, earthlings, are virtually lives

If there is a bunch of living beings far far away from us lives on another galaxy, there would be time for them to wonder if any aliens exist. And guess what? We are the aliens to them metaphysically. The existence of us tells two important messages, one is this world does have lives, another is this universe allow lives to dwell.

2. Think about just how tremendous the universe is

It won’t be hard to find out the diameter of our observable universe, that is 93 billion light years. It literally means one would spend 93 billion years to accomplish the full journey. And think about how many galaxies intersperse within and how many planets a galaxy owns. That’s just googol. With this large distribution, it’s hard to believe there ain’t any alien lives. And according to a 2013 study, habitable earth-like planets are just more common across universe than we thought before.

3. We may 1 billion years late

The current age of universe is 13.8 billion years, and our dear earth is just 4.54 billion years. The majority of stars and galaxies formations started at about one billion years after the big bang, so probably during this duration, other forms of vita have already developed high civilizations, way earlier than us. You know how to draw a graph of technology development from thousands of years ago to now, yeah, it is a curve, and the curvature will be more steep along with time, and one billion years is enough to mark as distinct.

4. Everywhere of our universe shares the same periodic table

So we need hydrogen, oxygen and carbon to support our system, they are the most common materials you can find all over the world, so do other places. We are alive, they can too.

5. Primordial soup is yummy

With that time, that abundant common elements, transformations are easy to happen in primordial soup of planets, organic compounds are no problems to be formed. And once it happened, it wouldn’t easy to be vanished totally, think about all the extinction events earth got caught.

I may go on, but that’s it. I must say, every single argument can not 100 percent guarantee the corollary, but as a matter of logic, with all combined, it is a cinch that a alien does exists. Although science and logicality are all rigorous and serious about all stuff, a rough but reliable sense which caused by logic can give us a right way to validity. Many a time, we do have no downright evidence about something, but we always figure out what to do aright, because many things we can’t prove yet, but deep down our sane heart, we think they are the ones to pursue, thanks to our logic system.

Good prompt, this one, Do or Die, and I am indeed serious about science.

Fireside Sidekick

First of all, let’s all sing this fireside girl anthem together.

Irving claimed himself as the biggest fan of Phineas and Ferb, so do I. If I would want a long talk with someone, I definitely choose the two intelligent boys. They always have the most exciting and creative ideas to build something out, and bring neighborhood friends a good time. 

My very first thing of every morning of summer vacation to do is picking up my scrapbook and camera, and then rushing into the two geniuses’ house and say hello to them. I even don’t need to talk, just stand by and listen the every word come out from their mouths, take pictures of what they are doing and collect them into my photo album. I am not a stalker, rather a smart man like to hang out with smart men, learn something new and be inspired.

Conversation Between Mysterious Islanders And Robinson

Two books: The mysterious island by Jules Verne and Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. In case you aren’t familiar with these books, they are the stories about castaways. For convenience, from here I will call the group from the island as the eight, since there are six men, one dog and an orangutan in the team.

Robinson: So you are from the mysterious island, which is a paradise for marooned people. It gets plenty of minerals that you can use and produce modern and effective products like saw, glass and gunpowder?

The Eight: Yes, we are. And we also get a engineer, who knows everything about how they work. He taught us how to make bricks, glasses and even water machine lift.

Robinson: And you have five people initially, I was alone most of my solitary time.

The Eight: Yes, we have five, but that wouldn’t make castaway life sound more fancier. At least, you finally have company with Friday, we are sure he is your reward of not giving up.

Robinson: Well, I just guess that’s my misfortune for being impetuous and never learn. Anyway, how’s your life over there, on the Lincoln island?

Pencroft: The most hardest thing was lack of tobacco, but my dear journalist and botanist, they surprised me with a smoking pipe filled with tobaccos one day, besides that, everything seemed fine to me.

The Other Seven: Let’s ignore Pencroft and his little hobby. But we do went through some tough time, like the cold winter without warm clothes, pirates crisis, destructive volcano eruption and all kinds of mysterious phenomenons etc. Thank goodness we have abundant food, such as sea clams, tortoise soup, wild boar, grouse, capybara and drinks made by plants and trees. Hunting is easy for some seasons of year, and later we also planted wheat and breed sheep.

Robinson: If only I could drift the same place and with you guys together.

The Eight: Don’t be silly, the most important thing is you are alive, life is tough all the time, and you went through it, that makes you more stronger.

Robinson: Yeah, you don’t say. So how long did you trapped on that island?

The Eight: Two years, more or less.

Robinson: Holy crap! Mine are 28 years. So, let me get this straight. You guys are rich now, you own the island, you are still young, and your country gets united. Basically, you just went for a vacation, and not a regular one.

The Eight: Yes, we are.

Robinson: Anyhoo, pleased to meet you.

An Island Leader

“That is difficult to say, Cyrus,” answered the reporter, “for any imprudence might involve terrible consequences. But his convalescence is progressing, and if he continues to gain strength, in eight days from now–well, we shall see.”

If you once read the book contains the above paragraph, you would figure out which it is. I shall give you chance to guess.

If you are right, the book is The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. Unfortunately I was not nearby any books, so I managed to find this paragraph in a manner of mathematical translation from third sentence on page 82 to here via online reading. But that’s not important.

I should roughly introduce you a little background of that chunk. The brave boy of being youngest islet explorer of five castaways was injured by a gunshot and now in terrible but progressing convalescence. And the other four was fighting against those pirates who had been invading their territory.

So here I try to make a post about what I am going to deal with such predicament as my team’s leader. First of all, in my team, I get four men in total(five if count me, since I’m very in), a smart dog Top and a loyal orangutan Jup. And one man is with Jup and separately away from the others at headquarters, no telephone communication available(the pirates had broken the wires). And also that poor brave boy, he was unable to move and needed a great deal of rests, we shall protect him at any costs. But good news is we get enough food, supplies, and weapons.

The enemies could be anywhere, and we don’t know how many are they, let’s assume the same amount to my men. Though we know the geographical conditions, it is still the most difficult battle we should face, for we don’t want anyone gets hurt any more.

Now come to my sortie plan. First, I would sent out a man and the dog Top as scouts, to detect any possible dangers surround us. One should be very vigilant and nimble for that job. If we’re sure to find a corner is safe, I should try sending another man as deliver to make contact to the man and Jup at our original base, and transmit the message of outflanking enemies peripherally to him. But we need Jup to gain our manpower, so the ranger should alone to finish his job. Meantime, we should enforce our defensive establishment, traps and barriers to keep the wounded safe. And what are needed to be all done, we are starting to launch attacks positively and prudently. Our enemies still have to eat something grilled, and the smoke can betray them. And if war is on, we are ready to besiege them and hit them hardly. We will win, cause we are the owners of this island.
