Rosetta rocks

“Next station coming up: third rock from the sun.” (Asteroid. NASA/JPL-Caltech)

What if they only come in peace or pieces?

Those massive rocks hurling relatively close by might be something more than random.

An ultra Uber for species seeking social interaction: ones just trying to get to the heart of things.

A metro for cross universe travel

Wait. Not so outrageous.

There’s all sorts of unexplainable oddities over the centuries.

Like how did lichens hook up with trees.

Some sort of generational/evolutionary, old treaty?

A long ago conversation leading to “Oh, we can’t let you go around so needy and homeless,” said some generous, kind oak. “Hop on and we’ll find some way to get along together with mutual interests. Live and let live?”

Now lichens cover some 6-8% of the Earth’s surface according to WIKI who also reports some lichens can no longer reproduce sexually, but continue to evolve. Once they get their hooks into things….

Cow bird on back of Soda Butte Creek bison. Oh, so it’s a bull, not a cow…and a bison… theory still the same…besides bison meat is leaner…maybe it’s an alien with a special healthy diet.(Image Flickr/Peaco/Commons.wikimedia.org)

Like cow birds.

No one sits on a cow or bull for long without approval. Ask any rodeo rider.

Yet somehow – someway – years and years ago, the two species formed an alliance for mutual assistance and benefit.

There are others.

Cattle Egret on Florida cow. (Image Ukiws/Commons.wikimedia.org)

See above. Cattle Egret on Florida cow. Look. Birds are descendants of dinosaurs. Nobody was around when they showed up, so who knows how they got here – or what their children, their grandchildren, and their great, great, great grandchildren birds had to do to survive. (Image Ukiws/Commons.wikimedia.org)

So

Given the universal shape and spacey appearance of COVID virus units 

And the fact that they are live organisms, who need a host to grow, and are adapting trying to find some form to survive…

Are COVIDs merely lost and desperate strangers in a strange land?

Asteroid hitchhikers hoping to find a Guide ?

Maybe humans just aren’t listening – or a “language” common to both species hasn’t been Rosetta Stoned yet. No way to signal “Hey if we team up there will be benefits for both of us!”

Symbiosis.

Don’t laugh.

The thought of alien life forms and Earth human partnering up probably isn’t new.

Science fiction has actually turned into science fact before. Jules Verne. HG Wells…..

Dr. Seuss. Did Horton have a Close Encounter ? Who knows.

Tread carefully. 

Don’t want to be like those pitchfork, torch welding villagers tormenting a Frankenstein creature because of misunderstanding and preconceived ideas.

All you need is love (and a strong immune system)

Piece. Out, please.

What do you mean internal workings were not specifically mentioned?”(1920 Frankenstein by actor CS Ogle.USPD/ Commons.wikimedia.org)

      Just have to rock with it! Thanks for leashing a comment here ( and keeping up with the boys with some fancy field footwork no doubt – those long dog legs can really cover ground!)

    Give me Monsieur Macron and, with no misunderstandingwhatsoever and with entrenched preconceived ideas about liberty, equality and fraternity, I shall set about him with a pitchfork to the light of torches. Then I’ll have a go at the rest of the mealy mouthed crooks…as long as the knees hold out.

    Thanks to a comment on my current post, I went a-searching, and look at this paragraph, without any context:

    “The general consensus on the use of vaccination is that if complying to GMP standards and properly administered, [subjects] will be more resistant to field challenge and will exhibit reduced shedding levels in case of infection. However, viral circulation may still occur in a clinically healthy vaccinated population. This may result in an endemic situation and in the emergence of antigenic variants.”

    Covid and its variants? Nope. That’s from an article on the efficacy of vaccinating chickens for control of avian flu. I can’t stop laughing.

    I was amused at your post, but I’m not laughing out loud in case an alien is listening.

      Wise. (Do they have ears or absorb sound waves/ Always something to wonder about)
      Thanks for wondering and wandering here. (Stay snug and warm in that cold blast!)

    No one knows what aliens will look like if/when we encounter them. And as huge as the universe is, I’m convinced there must be life of some kind out there somewhere … or maybe a lot closer than we think

    Sure wanted our First Contact to be Klaatu, or ET, or Mork… definitely not any of the covids. Now heading out to say hi to the cowbirds & magpies, then try to find H2G2 — time to reread!

    You are the kindest person on earth, worrying about a virus’s feelings, its connection to alien cultures. Perhaps you are right… but I’ll still insist on getting all my Fauci ouchies.

    Hey they just want to join the 39 trillion microbial cells or so that already live in humans…

    If they are aliens, I’d be happy if they decided home was far superior and went there posthaste!
