Why do people imagine aliens from outer space as having human-like features?? [View all]

In every illustration we have ever seen, they have arms and legs and fingers and heads and eyeballs.

But their heads are usually larger than ours. They may have fewer fingers? They usually are about the same height as an average earthling. Most of the time they are depicted as having much larger eyeballs than humans? How would they know we were the superior species on Earth?

Why can they not look like birds? Or porpoises? Or cats?

Or why can they not be invisible? Or maybe they just blend in with the light or the darkness? Perhaps they are just an energy field that whispers subliminal messages?

Everything seems to be relative to our own appearances? They are either taller or shorter, compared to our own height?.

But why would they look like humans if they were to visit us?

Are they in disguise and just trying to trick us?

Beam me up, Scotty. There is no intelligent life down here.

It is so easy to hide on the dark side of the Moon.
