That movie kind of made me wonder, though. Did the pod organism absorb all life on a planet, eventually, or just the intelligent life? It invaded the other plant-life but it didn't seem to change itself into them. And then there was the dogman. And what was it doing on that dead-looking planet? Or was that an asteroid? Interstellar alien spoor doesn't play by any of our rules, I guess.
We came here from a dying world. We drift through the universe, from planet to planet, pushed on by the solar winds. We adapt and we survive. The function of life is survival.I always figured some ghostly-germ-things floated and ended up here permanently.As some floated past the earth looking for another suitable place...or maybe blown past. But can't say I ever pondered it fully. And I should have.Now I'm feeling sorry for the things. Kind of stuck here. I'm assuming in the highest life forms....which brings up how long it must take for them to find a world with intelligent life. And they make a point to show us how "lost" and "bored" the pod people are at the end - going through the motions of human life.
Please don't sneeze on me or yak in my water!
Heh. Yeah, they're just kind of milling around. Having no emotions must be terribly boring.
