It has not all been done before. This is a blog that seeks to offer you a unique perspective from someone who is not from earth but also not from anywhere else. We are the underground, we are an outsider, we are outcast, we are, the alien in exile.
Hello humans. We are back for another blog post this week and we will share with you some more of our perspectives. This is the 13th post we have written for you so we think that our subject for today is relevant and insightful. But you can be the judge of that. The perspective for today is: Superstition. Some people might say they are not superstitious but we have not encountered any humans who are not. Everyone seems to have their oddity that they fear. The fear of the unknown or that something ominous is going to happen.
We have observed humans having a fascination with numbers. Numbers are nonetheless a human invention, it is a human idea to have to count and measure everything. Numbers do exist for us, but we think of them more abstractly like some humans do in theoretical physics. But the association of numbers with superstition we do not understand. Are they not concrete? Are they not iconoclastic? Do you not use them to define your surroundings?
The number 13 seems like an insignificant number in the scheme of things. We have observed humans believing that this number is unlucky. It does not seem so for us, as we believe that luck is for those who make it for themselves, by having a natural charm of character. 13 is what it is, just an item in a system designed by humans to create order. Numbers can be used for mathematics and measurement and other archaic methods of defining reality and instilling order for humans.
We believe that instead that humans should embrace the unknown and move forward out of fear. Maybe then systems of society will work, and your sciences will flourish and you will learn that the universe is made from chaos and not order. But it is just a suggestion. Thus far we do not know of any humans who have heeded our advice.
Perhaps there are some humans who appreciate this blog. It is for them and our hope to inspire them with our record of observations and perspectives. We just want to leave you with one thought on superstition. If it is a valid and concrete belief system, then why has it caused nothing but problems for humans? Because of superstition people have done terrible things like murder, kill, maim, destroy and cause war. End this archaic system of belief and it is likely that peace will come.
We are the Alien in Exile and we want truth.
Conclusion: Superstition = (lies < cause problems) + [ (rather than solutions) - (order) ]
