Earth is made of mostly water and it also has big masses of land. We have many animals in our oceans and plants which breathe in Carbon Dioxide and breath out Oxygen.

I wear lots of jewelry. Do you look anything like me? Our Earth is very green. In some places on Earth the temperatures change. It gets hot on some sides of Earth and cold on the other. On our Earth some places are hot so people dress lightly. And where it's cold people dress in warm clothes. I have two legs, two eyes, two arms, one head and a mouth. They are all very useful. Up where you live are there any other creatures moving around that you have seen? Are there any signs of life found in outer space?

Are there any signs of things growing around? Is it hot or cold? Is it dark? Do you have ears, mouth, head, eyes, nose, legs, and arms or anything on your body?

The beings that live on the planet Earth are the species of Homo Sapiens, whom are warm blooded. I am a Homo Sapiens. I have two eyes to see with. Do you have eyes? I have a mouth to eat with and to talk with. Do you? I have ears to hear with and a nose to smell with. Do you? I have to stubs coming out of my body called legs that transport me where I want to go. I breath a compound called oxygen.

I am proud to be an intelligent being because it makes life easier to live. If we Homo Sapiens weren't intelligent we wouldn't be able to send this message! How do you feel about being an intelligent being?

Does the planet that you live on include a changing environment? Or does your environment stay the same? Does your planet have a sun?

If you get this message send back your own message to planet Earth. Thank you for cooperating with me.

(MESSAGE INTO THE UNIVERSE) Salutations,

Hello. My ID number is 00030. I am a member of the highest order of primates on planet 3 of this universe. Where I live there are warm-moist summers and and cold winters. Winters are when a planet is farthest away from the sun.

I believe power is only achieved through influence. Influence is reached by gaining knowledge. We need to continue to learn and expand.

Where were you born ? Is it an oxygen-rich environment? Are you a carbon-based life form? ( To understand our way of thinking, get a form called "The Periodic Table. " It will be most helpful.) Would you like to share information with us? I am sure we could make negotiations. Please respond if there is any way you know how.

(MESSAGE INTO THE UNIVERSE)

Hi, aliens!

I'm six foot and have no hair on my head. I enjoy long walks on the beach, and rock and roll, mainly Beatles, which you should be hearing recently, as much of our broadcast music and T.V. shows continually radiate into space. There are lots of trees which are gradually being cut down and made into houses and paper and other such products.

My feelings as an intelligent being vary. Mainly they consist of one, though. That feeling is love. It's a very important to the survival of our race, that is the human race. However, some tend to forget about this and instead make wars and death. We have this feeling, which is a popular one, as a whole when we make motion pictures exploiting you guys. I guess this is just restating my point. We only think about love and each other's well-being when we are threatened as a whole, by a foreign power that is much greater than ourselves.

So, what do you guys think about, and what is your environment like? Also, what are your personal views on intelligence? It is important to me and everybody else down here. Come visit, I know I would enjoy your company.

(MESSAGE INTO THE UNIVERSE)

Hello and greetings to you all. My ID is # 00033. I am 15 years old and from the United States of America.

The earth's environment varies from place to place. In places such as Chicago, it is very polluted and smokey. In other places it could be snowy, sunny, or rainy all of the time. Where I live, the environment changes with the seasons.

I like being who I am. I like the human race, but I dont like the way some people are. Some people are racist against other people. I love being a human, but sometimes humans can be a little mean and violent.

What is your species like? How many life forms do you have? What color skin do you have? Does your environment change like ours does, or does it stay the same all of the time? Do you like being who you are? Are you an intelligent form of life? Would you ever like to become a human? Well, I guess that is all I have to say for now. Mabye I will e-mail you again sometimes.

Bye Bye,
