Is there alien life on Earth? Maybe, says Brit 'naut. Well, where did they come from? How about this far-away cluster. Or this 'Godzilla' galaxy...

I saw a documentary about them a while back. They are fully terrestrial in origin and have DNA etc. It is just they diverged from most other animal species very early in the evolutionary tree and are thus very different to most other species having evolved various organs (such as brains and eyes etc) independently.

Our last common ancestor was apparently some sort of sea worm
