Ask yourself why we travel thousands of miles to go on a safari to see the wild beasts eating each other....I rest my case m'lud.

We can't be sure that the aliens you speak of used their fingers for inventing things. Why couldn't they make things levitate with their minds, like Yoda? Or maybe they have big toes on their feet, and can manipulate objects with foot power.

Also, I think it's an oversimplification to say that the lifeforms here are busy killing each other. There has to be a balance so that the prey have a chance to reproduce. If the killers kill all their prey, that leaves them with no future meals. There are also some lifeforms that deliberately *help* other lifeforms. For instance, bees. Without the attentions of bees, many flowering plants would not be able to seed their next generations. And what of the animals that eat fruit? The fruit itself is no loss for the plants that produce it. The plant is manipulating animals so that the inedible seeds will be spread to new places after the surrounding fruit has been eaten.

Gray skinned aliens? Well, it's not really gray. It's a color that the aliens can see but we can't.

In answer to some of your questions. Sex? Perhaps they clone themselves. Disease? Maybe they have some kind of landing protocol which includes disease prevention. Languages? If you're telepathic, I should imagine you'd read minds direct, not needing to go through the cumbersome language centres of the brain but understand the thought direct. Reason for coming here? Research of a primitive species but no open diplomatic relations because of the tricky-dickie mentality of this planet besides looking at the state of the world at the moment, this could be the restaurant at the end of the universe time.

Cloning is like "inbreeding" - in time the DNA will mutate and degrade = smiley - whistle hooray Henry's smiley - winkeye

I think that no viable DNA is left in these specimens smiley - online2long

And why do you think they are breeding with us? It is like the lords of the manor sleeping with the rough locals to get back some vitality back into their DNA. Thoroughbred animals develop health defects for the same reason where mongrels don't. I always point out cloning is like drawing a line round a figure, then another, then another etc until it no longer resembles a human being.

Ask people who have lost their thumbs, how they cope with hitching a ride? Blanket statements about not being able to cope may not be totally true.

You'll have to forgive me now because I need to be a-clone.

You may be asking the impossible. I don't know anyone who has lost any thumbs.

At one time inter breeding different species was to smiley - biggrincoin the phrase! Alien technology.
A "dictator" tried to "breed" the perfect racesmiley - winkeye
But with DNA technology now! glowing jellyfish dan added to plant dna or something like (see internet) is happening.
If! smiley - aliensmile has been/or is here etc - DNA manipulation to them is like us knowing how to count to 3 smiley - laugh

Counting to three is easy. It's counting to pi that you can't get past.

I'm fairly square anyway. I think like a filing cabinet.
