Interesting Idea / by Neil Blake

I was watching Planet Earth II with David Attenborough on Netflix tonight after a beautiful 10KM walk in the sun along the seawall here in Vancouver with my mom when something he said triggered a new theory about what the meaning and real point of life is.


Could it perhaps be that life is a grand alien experiment using the earth as a large Petri dish and us, humans, and any other form of life on the planet, as the genetic variation component of the experiment? Perhaps they are trying to find the answer to about themselves, or some other problem they are working on. Maybe it is trying to save itself? Or maybe they are looking for the right genetic combination that would be the one to unluck or maybe even fix their biggest problem (or problems).  What do you think?
