It’s hard to imagine how big the universe is. It’s hard to comprehend all of time and space. It’s hard to imagine that there couldn’t be alternate life forms in all of that vastness.
I hope there are aliens! I hope they are laughing at me! I hope they will reveal themselves! I hope I can learn, grow and share. I hope they believe in love. I hope they don’t know shame. I hope they are free. I hope they are giant, thin and flat like translucent paper or jellyfish. I hope they are tiny but make great sounds. I hope they are something I could never imagine!
Who knows what forms, bodies and consciousness could evolve within all this variety. Who knows if we even have the facilities to perceive these creatures, vibrations, frequencies and energies.
