There are some who believe that human beings are alien to the Earth because of the fact that the vast majority of us have back and neck problems and so they conclude that our bodies probably evolved (or were designed) to live on a planet with much less gravity. They say this theory is also supported by the fact that the heads of human newborns are so heavy, the length of time it takes human babies to walk compared to other animals, and the fact that human skin is so sensitive to the sun. How do you feel about this notion?
@ijesuschrist, @satyapriya, It’s an interesting thought, tho. Along with the back / neck pain I’d say just the sheer fact that we’re bipedal is unique and still unexplained by history or biology. The only other animal I can think of is a kangaroo, or a raptor or something huskier with a long tail to counterweight it. We don’t have anything like that yet stand up just fine. Can’t recall if there are even any other primates that are 100% bipedal; most prefer to walk on all 4’s which is extremely awkward and uncomfortable for a human to attempt.
So I’d say you’re right that we seem like a creature designed to thrive in a more bouyant atmosphere. Unfortunately not enough to prove we’re aliens but still a cool idea.
@satyapriya, Most people have back and shoulder problems due to the enormous amount of strain we put on them through bad posture, and over use without actually properly building up the muscles there first. Back and shoulder pain is also due to stress and tension as they’re some of the muscles that bunch up when you are feeling stressed.
Human skin isn’t the only one sensitive to the sun. Most animal skin is sensitive to the sun that isn’t covered in hair. We have to apply suncream to some horse’s noses to stop them from burning at times and some wild animals (and domestic) will roll in mud to protect themselves. Also, the sun gives us more benefits than health problems. If we were on a planet without the sun, we’d die. Most planets rotate around a sun anyways.
@satyapriya, There is the expanding “Earth theory” that I ran into yesterday https://www.highexistence.com/topic/expnading-earth-theory/
Although it is not a case of the world changing mass, but all the water on the surface is now on our level, if it were below us there would have been more mass at the centre of the planet, and so a greater gravitational pull, in theory, so maybe the problems you are suggesting are not from lower gravity change but from a higher gravity change.
The problem is far simpler: there is no such thing as ‘alien’.
Let me explain, briefly. This idea is a sci-fi/war/terror convenience. It is not real. It is not very intelligent, either. And it is dangerous. Allow me to illustrate.
Imagine a basketball that has been on the shore of the ocean for a few years and is covered with little cities of intelligent bacteria. Let’s say it is a basketball. And it has some land bacteria and fungus on it and it falls into the ocean. Previously, it would speculate about ocean bacteria. And sometimes it -would even encounter them directly-.
These shorebound bacterial cultures would wonder about ‘whether or not there was life on other balls near the ocean’ and ‘war with aliens from deep waters’ which, for this ball, meant the same thing as ‘deep spacetime’ means for us. And the ball cultures notice one day that they have apparently ‘fallen into the ocean’, terror reigns, and atrocity ensues. The apocalypse changes the culture of the minds of the creatures on the little ball.
Now, most of these are killed off by the salt as the ball becomes lost in the ocean. But some survive. And they are now in combat with ‘lethal aliens from space’… which are the organisms from the ocean that invade the ball in the water.
If these were humans, they would. And, precisely like our modern cultures, which are not bound to this, but instead choose it by their angle of perspective, they would fail to realize something utterly obvious: everything including themselves -came from deep space-.
So -everything on Earth is fundamentally alien-. Earth is an anciently evolved temporo-spatial meta-organism. Everything is -pure alien- (and *only* the humans are confused about this, believe me).
The ball came from the ocean. So did the idea of aliens. So did -everything-.
We -are- aliens. Aliens are us. There -are no aliens- because -everything is from timeSpace- and its extensions. There is nothing else to be…
… but alien.
And if you begin to realize this?
Well, you are going to meet aliens.
(because, contrary to popular speculation, media, nonsense and ignorance sold as secret wisdom, you and your mind are made of them, and your world is basically a transcalar zoo of them).
In ways nothing in your culture could possibly ever prepare you for.
