What are the chances of a alien race in this universe existing that humans might actually find attractive.
Or a race that is actually genetically compatible for reproduction with humans.

I find it kinda fumy how media likes to portray aliens when the chances of finding a alien race that even remotely resembles humans is highly improbable.
The jellyfish from mas effect are more likely to be our first contact than some kind of space elf's.

What are you basing that on? Convergent evolution happens here on earth, if other animals existed on another planet and were subjected to the same evolutionary pressures, it's entirely possible would produce similar adaptations.
>>
>>6621311
I'd agree with you that a similar planet may make similar adaptations appear but there wouldn't be any guarantee that the parts would be in the same places.

Like space Mr. Potato Heads.

'humans' that are lonely are fucking wierd, so if the chance of an alien race existing is 10%, the chance that some wierdo will find it sexually attractive is 10%

>Or a race that is actually genetically compatible for reproduction with humans.
~0%, but there may be some way to merge using fancy science.

I would argue that if intelligent aliens exist, there should be a very good chance that they have 2+ hand-like appendages, 2+ eyes, a mouth, and an internal skeleton. I would not expect them to look like... the Vanar, was it?

Reasoning:
2+ hands: need some way of manipulating tools
2+ eyes: binocular vision would be important sensory adaptation, even most insects have it.
mouth: necessary for caloric intake
endoskeleton: I thought I read that exoskeletons on Earth-creatures are only good up to a certain size and after that they become prohibitively "expensive" in an evolutionary sense or just don't permit some biological functions.

100%, read some hentai, humans are capable of finding a lot of things attractive. I personally hope we find some sort of slimy tentacle monster in my lifetime.
>>
>>6621387
OP here.
I who'd not mind some kind of centaur hermaphrodite fluffy tail mammal (multibreast even) creature.
As long as its sentient and capable of love and somewhat cute by human standards i don't mind.
And i think the rules of abstractions go both ways.
If you find such a alien race attractive chances are there exists a alien of that race that finds humans attractive.
>>
i wonder what humans who'd look like to aliens.
We have almost no body hair.
We have many holes on our body.
Males have a tentacle and egg sacks for reproductions.
Females give birth to live young in a painful process and occasionally bleed from the reproductive hole.
We secret a slime from our oral cavity.
And even more viscus slime from our what we call nasal cavities.
>>
>>6621459
We should make a thread about how aliens will see us. Seriously.
>>
>>6621381
Agreed. The monkeys are pretty good at doing things. Humans are, for me, monkeys with the ability to speak and to stand up for extended periods of time. The rest is a byproduct of the evolution.
>>
>>6621338
If there are more particles than possible combinations of particles, then there actually is a chance.

After all of this is settled, maybe we should start speculating about who will start the debate about interspecies marriage, alien/human rights, etc.
>>
blue space elves would be a lot more likely if a concept like Panspermia was correct, making us (not so) distant relatives of the alien species we come across.
>>
>>6621338
Doubtfully. You take an area as infinite as the universe and then look at how adaptable life is? It's entirely possible we could encounter an organism like us; it would be extremely rare but still quite possible.
>>
>>6621311
>Convergent evolution happens here on earth
In very, very broad senses and in more specific cases, very, very rarely
>>
>>6621381
>2+ hands: need some way of manipulating tools
You can manipulate things with more than just hands.

>exoskeleton can't work
Only assuming earth-like environment, and then also assuming they don't have an endoskeleton to help support it and more efficient lungs like us instead of the book lungs insects and arachnids have.
>>
>>6621381
Hands, pincers, legs, tentacles...Hell, there's multiple terrestrial example for manipulators and given the sheer variety life can evoke, its unrealistic to believe that "these are the only designs possible".

Eyes would only matter on world's where light is widely available.

Mouths aren't necessary if the organism simply absorbs its prey or uses a proboscis.

Turtles and pangolins use variations of exoskeletons. The main problem with bugs is that they use an open circulatory system, not that they have bones on their outsides rather then their insides.

I think you guys don't understand human nature. When we find aliens, they are going to think we are massive sluts for wanting to fuck them. Make no mistake though, we will. It doesn't matter if we have to make special devices so we can withstand crushing pressures, or alter our bodies to appear more attractive to them, WE WILL FUCK WITH THE ALIENS AND MAKE THEM LOVE IT

Shit. Not in your lifetime, buddy.

Actually on the most habitable planets in nasas list of exoplanets. Survivability and evolution makes bipedals the most likely advanced form of life. Quadropeds are the most efficient lower form. Assuming the aliems didnt fuck up their own evolution with feelings theyd most likely be about a foot taller. Fairly thick. And raised on the balls of their feet unless they had hooves, if they had pads its irrelevant.

Ps id fuck an intelligent alien no matter what they looked like

Do you think aliens will have butts?
I wanna feel an alien butt. Sexually.
>>
>>6622963
Humans are bipedal because we evolved from tetrapods who were based on a four limb body plan. 4 limbs is not necessarily the standard for anything. 6, 8, many more, and none are all just as likely.
>>
>>6621304
>What are the chances of a alien race in this universe existing that humans might actually find attractive.
Fairly high. Some humans can find anything attractive - see also, bestiality. If macroscopic multicellular alien life exists, someone will want to fuck it. I consider the chance of multicellular alien life existing to be quite high.

>Or a race that is actually genetically compatible for reproduction with humans
Zero. Well, not literally zero, but so unlikely I'd bet a billion dollars on there being no such alien species.
>>
>>6622295
>assuming earth-like environment
As far as we know mammal life can only exist in an earth like environment. Yes some life has proved resilient in a vacuum and extreme conditions but not of the kind discussed ITT.
>>
Nobody knows anything about alien life because we've never seen any. The most we can do is infer some things about it from life on Earth everything else is just speculation, including whether or not they would resemble humans or Earth life in general.
>>
Actually, humans have a surprisingly diverse spectrum of sexuality compared to virtually any other animal. If this is a property of intelligent creatures then it wouldn't be terribly unlikely that we might find attraction. I hate to say this but the furry community is a decent example of such adaptive diversity.
>>
>>6623639

We haven't really experimented with cross species breeding very much. It's unethical as fuck. So there isn't good data on the true scope of tolerance for other species.

That said, anything not from earth will have a not-from-earth immune system. This will likely autoimmune the fuck out of any natural xeno hybrids that would be hypothetically possible. That takes us well beyond the probability of the duplicate configurations of matter.

I don't imagine it would be terribly hard to engineer a hybrid, though. Provided the alien species happened to emerge from a similar atmosphere, they'd likely have similar functional sets of core organs.
