  3. Are aliens made of organic compounds? (Probably Yes)

Organic compounds contain atoms of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, and other elements. Carbon has a square chemical bond, and its great advantage is that it has very compressed chemical energy. Creating a life without organic compounds is not impossible but requires a completely different metabolism and a non-protein genetic code.

The energetic advantage that exists in organic molecules is significant, so in all probability - aliens are made up of organic compounds.

  • The human appearance of aliens raises questions; perhaps we are a product of genetic engineering performed by aliens in us? Such claims regularly exist in the scientific community, claiming that evolutionary leaps were too rapid for natural processes.
  • Living things require energy, and therefore without chemical energy, where there is a distinct advantage to organic compounds, the other option is magnetic- electrical or nuclear energy (solid & weak forces). "Electrical" aliens are expected to look quite different from the images of aliens that can be easily found in any search.
Will aliens have organs reminiscent of human organs if they have organic physiology? Most of the images of aliens that abound on the Internet are reminiscent of humans: no hair, different limbs, big head, and huge eyes, but not monsters.
  • Physiology and energy production from an organic source will require aliens to liver-kidney-like organs and the heart and blood vessels. Even if aliens do not eat humanoid food, they will have to emit the breakdown products they produce. Therefore they will need a product disposal system. (Not necessarily similar to the human digestive tract or urinary tract) There is a reasonable chance that aliens (assuming they are built and consume organic matter to produce energy) will likely see body systems reminiscent of human systems.
