  • Good evening,

    The problem here is that we assume that life in another planet will follow the same evolution path as in Earth.

    Suppose that in a given planet, an intelligent life form that has an exoskeleton and articulated legs evolves and develops a technological civilization. Should we call them "insects"? Not at all! Instead, we will have to develop a complete taxonomy and classification system specific to the life that exists on that planet.

    Even on Earth, we have different classes of arthropods: insects, crustaceans, arachnids and a few others. If an intelligent extraterrestrial life form has claws, should we call them crustaceans ?

    I made the same remark about one year ago about "intelligent plants".

    Applying the same classification system that we developed for Earth life to extraterrestrial life is pointless in my opinion.

    Best regards,

    Jean

  • Jean:

    The epithet "insects" is just a reference point for my argument.

    I couldn't use a generic term (alien, for instance); that would defeat my point.

    Insects is proper for the perspective I was alluding to.....which shouldn't be taken too seriously by the way.

    Well...in Star Wars they do. That spaceship building race of squid people in white military uniforms are called "calamari". LOL

    Come to think of it, Schmitt and Carey claimed that child mummy in the Kodachrome slide was a "Jerusalem Cricket" - but not the earthly type. More like a desert oriented interstellar "bug alien".

    Go figure...
