Special note: My mother doesn't lie to me, okay?

My mother journals, where she basically gets all the rage on paper.

She showed me her entry from last night. It was rage to start with, then a pattern, and then "If you're happy and you know it clap your hands
Why am I writing in a way that none can read without form?
(At this point the handwriting was degrading fast) It is strangely rela" At this point it becomes incomprehensible, and apparently the writing was "automatic". But by the next paragraph it had become some sort of weird symbol text. It had a very definite form to it, and the symbols were written in a certain way and some appeared multiple times. Punctuation was also noticeable.

It was definitely a language, and it certainly wasn't English. Apparently, Tailgate was sleeptalking in another language too midway through last year.

I also apparently stated that I was from Jupiter when I first learned to fully talk. When asked if it was cold, I simply said that it was fine, just hotter here. And there was nothing on Earth. This is at least partly consistent with the theory of panspermia, which suggests that the meteorites that brought life-sustaining chemicals to the young Earth also brought life there, explaining why it developed so quickly when the chance arose.

And there's also the collective subconscious. For those who don't know what that is, imagine a six-year-old who's never had the word "Pikachu" mentioned to them in their entire life. They'd still be able to draw one. The collective subconscious is a low-level "telepathic" web existing between humans that shares common knowledge.

This is where all of this descends into what some may view as complete BS, but I trust Bulbagarden to handle this like mature adults.

Perhaps the collective subconscious is storing commonly known information from early extraterrestrial life that migrated to the early Earth, permanently embedded into the deepest parts of our subconscious, like their language. This would explain why virtually every culture in the world uses writing and verbal language. It's just a theory, but I am definitely looking into this. I'm going to try and decode it if I ever get the chance.

    I've read this a few times and I still don't understand.

    To summarise:

    Extraterrestrial civilization exists before humans before evolving into them to suit new Earth needs
    Traces of them left in subconscious

    that sounds familiar, I remember hearing something similar from an old sci-fi movie... except the aliens in question were from Mars instead...
    I dunno, the concept seems a little too far-fetched for me, though.

    that pikachu thing is interesting, though, cause I remember something like that happening to me. had to make something in elementary school, I ended up drawing pikachu almost randomly, assuming it was some simply design... by the time i was introduced to Pokemon, I long forgot about it, but now that I remember it, it did seem a little strange. I didn't think too hard about it, and figured it was just coincidence...

    There's a lot about the collective subconscious. It's on the verge of being a scientific theory if only someone had an explanation for it.

    My bullshit alarm is tingling.

    explaining why it developed so quickly when the chance arose.
    Define "quick". Would hardly call a billion years quick.

    I was from Jupiter when I first learned to fully talk
    Of all the planets, Jupiter? You realize what Jupiter actually is, do you?

    imagine a six-year-old who's never had the word "Pikachu" mentioned to them in their entire life. They'd still be able to draw one.

    You'd probably just get a very confused kid.

    The collective subconscious is a low-level "telepathic" web existing between humans that shares common knowledge.
    What the fuck is even this. A telepathic "web"? What does that even mean? You make this term just up with no basis in anything at all.

    Perhaps the collective subconscious is storing commonly known information from early extraterrestrial life that migrated to the early Earth, permanently embedded into the deepest parts of our subconscious
    Again, there is no collective subconscious. Evolution has, at it should, given human a bunch of collective instincts. That's to be expected given we're a species. However, to say that we have a pool of collective known information is complete bullshit right there. If you were to use the example of Pikachu, I could pull in the Schrödinger equation. This is not in any way collective knowledge, with the obvious exception that humans have produced literature that explains it and passes it down orally. It's not, however, collective knowledge before you have learned it, people cannot just be told the words Schrödinger equation and write it down. You can possibly derive it, but it all requires knowledge that's not subconscious.

    Adding to that, there's no evidence for extraterrestrial life visiting Earth. Either you're disregarding the entire theory of evolution, or you're saying that bacteria or other simple life forms that would have been the only things even remotely possible of surviving impact with a meteorite had some sort of collective well of knowledge. If it was "higher" (not that I like the term when it comes to evolution, there is no "higher" or "lower" beings in nature) beings that came to Earth to impose their wisdom, why is there no evidence of such a thing.

    Also, the notion that human intelligence derived from aliens is downright insulting to the progress humans have made. It's an evolutionary trait.

    This would explain why virtually every culture in the world uses writing and verbal language.
    Or, you know, it's a very good way of communicating? Passing on information? Given that no psychic powers exist that science is aware of, we make do with what we have, which is oral and written communications.

    It's just a theory
    This is not science. Stop trying to make it sound like it's anything remotely near.

    Extraterrestrial civilization exists before humans before evolving into them to suit new Earth needs
    So, who's evolving into what? When? Earth's needs? What does this even mean?

    My mother doesn't lie to me, okay?
    Yeah, nah.

    I trust Bulbagarden to handle this like mature adults.
    I have handled it as serious as I possibly could, which isn't saying a lot. I simply cannot take such a lack of judgment seriously.

    In short, there's no evidence of a collective subconsciouses. Humans share a lot of ideas mostly stemming from evolution and the basic instincts if anything. For instance, there's some evidence that regardless of religion and place of origin, we share some of the same set of morals. However, what you're suggesting is absurd.

    Well, at least the post title is accurate.

    Well, to be fair, you can't expect everyone to agree with you, especially when you claim outdated pseudopsychological theories are practically science.

    Again, I highly doubt that. Last I heard, the collective subconscious was up there with past life regression and homeopathy.

    Let the record show that I would also like to see the symbols. For science (but also lulz).

    You are confusing the word "hypothesis" and "theory." A theory is a "well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of knowledge that has been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment," and a hypothesis is a "proposed explanation for a phenomenon," (quoted from their respective wiki articles). A hypothesis only becomes a theory after it is tested by rigorous experimentation and research. I think a minimal amount of unbiased experimentation and research would probably be sufficient to reject your hypothesis.
