Fifi's Thoughts
3/19/2007 9:41:19 AM
Meet Alocki and why you better start eating more liver and califlower.

Alright you people I told you all before that I would introduce you to Alocki, you know the lady who says she's from another planet called Nim, which she says orbits Alpha Centauri A. Well Alocki took a few minutes out of her busy schedule, she's like a genetics research scientist at some famous pharmaceutical lab out here in LA.

F: Well Alocki I'm just glad you took time out of your busy schedule to talk. I really enjoyed talking to you because you're like the smartest I person ever met. Tell me about your background, did you get like a PHd in science or engineering from famous school on your planet?

A: Fifi I also enjoy talking to you. I like having converation with interesting people and you are one who is very interesting. As for my formal education on Nim we are rigorously trained almost at birth in three fields, our language, science, and mathematics. We are sent to "training centers" from the age of 5 of your Earth years (EY) till around 17 or 18 EY. Usually by that age we have knowledge equivalent to say a PHd student on your planet who specializes in sclence (including medicicine) and mathematics. We are then sent to specialization centers till our middle twenties EY to gain greater specialization in fields such as genetics, biology, and engineering. But rigorous training starting from childhood is the key to advancement of our people. For instance a 10 year old in EY on Nim has a strong knowledge of differenial equations, physcial chemistry and fluid mechanics. Anyways I did not have a formal degree from a university when I came to Earth but after learning your English language was able to secure a PHd from your Throop Institute of Technology in a little over a year.

F: Omigosh Throop those kids are like supernerds and they all have like close to 1600 on their SATs. I wanted to get into Throop but my SATs just weren't good enough. You mean you got like a Bachelors, Masters and Doctorate in a little over a year?

A: Yes such a thing was not difficult. The only thing that took me some time was mastering English. The professors at Throop let me took all the course requirements by examination which I had no trouble passing. I took perhaps eight to ten examinations at a time. The other hard part was earning money to pay for tuition. I worked as a software engineer to help pay for the tution.

F: Alocki I don't understand it, you look just like me. Yet it seems like Nimians are just so darn smart. Also may I ask how old are you are in Earth years. You look so young for having traveled all that distance from Nim to Earth. I mean I read its like 4 OR 5 LIGHT YEARS.

A: Yes Fifi it is over 4 light years from Nim to Earth. Someday I will tell you about our advancements in theortical physics, genetics, and nuclear propulsion where I have aged little in traveling the great distance from Nim to Earth. As for intelligence the humans on my planet are genetically the same as the humans on your planet. Our brain size is identical. On Nim however we have little entertainment. Young people spend almost all their time studying and mastering skills. If young people on your planet would spend less time on entertainment and more time studying they would have a much stronger education. As for my age lets just I am in my mid thirties EY even though I am much older. On Nim the average life apan is around 150 EY. These advancements could have possibly been reached by people on your planet if so much money and time and lives were not wasted on superflous things, especially in the last century.

F: Well that's very interesting Alocki. Now you kids here on Earth need to realize you can't sit around and watch TV, play video games, and go to Myspace all the time. You need to hit the books. Especially kids in the US. We got kids in middle school and high school who are still mastering fractions and these 10 year old Nimian kids know differential equations. Now Alocki I am really curious about the plant and animal life on Nim? Is it similar to Earth?

A: It is very similar. Nim is 120 million from AC B and takes 11/2 years to orbit. The climate is therefore more cooler on Nim than on Earth. The plant life on Nim is perhaps more decidious (forest like) than on Earth. We have do have tropical areas and deserts however. We have a large ocean (Herosia) surrounding one large land mass (also called Nim). We do have many islands however. The people af Nim look just Earth and there are differences in skin color and genetic features DUE TO CHANGES IN CLIMATIC CONDITIONS JUST LIKE YOUR EARTH. We do not catergorize people as different races as you do here on Earth. If that is the case than I am one with my dark hair would be similar to one on Earth who is Meditarrean or Hispanic.
As for the animal life again our animals are similar tom yours. We have birds and bears and cats and wolves and fish and dogs and insects like yours. There are some differences. For instance we have larger insects. We have dragonflies that are three feet across. We have a large reptillian carnivorous reptile in our ocean that is similar to your Mosasaur which lived 20 million years ago on your planet. We do not have sharks or crocodiles or alligators, they are both extinct. We have gorillas, chimpanzees, and monkeys on Nim and like your Darwin we are evolutionists and believe humans evolved from apes. If one would look at Nim from a distance it would like simialr to Earth, a Blue Planet. Nim is about 2/3 the size of Earth.

F: Just fascinating Alocki, Just fascinating. Now Alocki I being a Christian have to differ we you on evolution. I truly believe the Lord created in His image. But you are a scientist and you also a good friend of Biff who probably shares your thoughts so I respect your opinion.

A. That is the purpose of good dialogue between people. Each one is entitled to his or her own opinion. Fifi I am one who believes that we are products of changes in genetics, chemistry, and physics. We are no different in ways than the vehicles we drive. For instance your car and my spaceship. Your car is powered by chemical/electrical energy. Cannot the same be said about our bodies. The nerves (electrical) and the food/blood processing (chemical). Can't engine oil thst runs your car be similar to the blood that runs your body? In other words we see strong similarites between bioligical life and energy and consider life to be perhaps a form of energy. We believe strongly in ENERGY TRANSFORMATION when the body expires (Death process) but do not where one goes, perhaps one may come back to life as a centipede as you have once mockingly said. Anyways I have seen no scientific evidence of a Supreme Being older than nature and I have seen no historical/scientific evidence of a Supernatural Being wandering your planet or my planet. I am one who is a scientist and not a theologist. I believe changes in nature due to time are causes for genetic evolution of people/animals and the physical characteristics of our planets.

F: Well Alocki I'm glad we had this conversation. You like my boyfriend Biff are atheists and I disagree with you on theology but still respect ypur opionion ad I am convinced you are from another planet. I look foreward
to having more intellectual conversations with you in the future because I like talking to intellectual people.

A: Thank you Fifi. It was a pleasure having this conversation with you.

Hope you people enjoyed meeting Alocki. You may disagree with her on things on religion but she's entitled to her opinion like anyone else. By the way I liked what she said about blood kind of being compared to car oil. You people see how dirty car oil gets after while and has to be changed. Well maybe your blood gets dirty when you eat a lot junk food. Now you can know califlower and liver will never win a popularity contest with hot dogs, pizza, and apple pie but it sure is probably better for your blood. SO KIDS DON'T COMPLAIN WHEN MOMMY GIVES YOU CAULIFLOWER AND LIVER FOR DINNER, IT MAY ADD A FEW YEARS TO YOUR LIFE. Ok thats enough 'food' for thought for now.
