    yeouch, I will pass on anything that is not a dog or a cat...maybe a hamster called Poppi Longstocking.

    that's weird, but I surely believe it. I'll bet Hamsters do also.

    Yes, but we cannot discount the possibility that the aliens are themselves higher-dimensional beings, and therefore, that they are native to a hyper-dimensional reality beyond our known spacetime continuum.

    yeah, that's true and something that needs to be considered.

    Some of that original research was done long ago by the Russkies using 'Kirlian' photography. It was in line with what I expected because in reality, the chemical formula of 'blood' and 'chlorophyll differs by only one molecule. That fact was always highly intriguing to me.

    Feeding caterpillars with plants could be considered inhumane research. It bugged me at first to mow my lawn because I recalled the research. It 'hurts' me even more to have to trim bushes and trees. But I suppose in some sense they might appreciate it, perhaps like getting a haircut.
