Everyone always tends to think of aliens as the sort of creatures portrayed in Star Trek or Star Wars, or any other science fiction TV and movie series. But … what if aliens were already here? What if they were viruses?
How would the alien aspect then work? Would the virus be a collective intelligence, working to take over the world? Are we trying to wipe out a ‘race’ of refugees who are seeking nothing but safety? Have they been trying to communicate with us? Do they even realise that we are here, viewing everyone that they infect as a whole different galaxy, maybe even a universe?
Do they view us a diseases? Hosts that try to destroy them by introducing medicines that – to them – are invaders, genocidal killers from a place they were totally unaware of? What does it feel like to see your loved ones killed, whole generations of your culture wiped out?
