    And so to the Pleiades themselves. Jose Comas Sola, whoever he may be, was either quite wrong or misquoted. Our Sun is not part of the Pleiades system; neither does it orbit the Pleiades ever 24,000 years.

    The Pleiades are approximately 125 parsecs or 407.5 light years from our solar system. A quick calculation shows that if our Sun were in this orbit, then its orbital velocity would be 0.107C, or a little over one tenth the speed of light. This equates to approximately 32,000km/sec. This velocity would be apparent, not only to astronomers, but to everyone, as the constellations would change dramatically in the course of a single lifetime if this were true.

    The Pleiades is a loose cluster of approximately 100 stars, with an average age estimated at 78 million years. These are very young stars, much younger than our own Sun, estimated at 5 billion years old, much younger even than our own planet, Earth.

    These are very hot, bright stars of spectral type B, much hotter and about 10 times more massive than our Sun, spectral type G. They have not yet moved away from the interstellar gas cloud, or nebula, from which they formed. Remnants of this nebula can readily be seen in photographs of the group. It has been suggested that this mist nebulosity, shining with the light of the stars within, is what has given rise to the myth of the PHOTON BELT.

    I have discussed this now with some people, who say that they have contact with Pleiadian beings. This is a summery of what they say:
    ----------------------------
    The beings inhabit a much larger space that just the Pleiades. The reason they say that they are from the Pleiades is that it is a constellation within their territory, that we are familiary with. These beings can not be seen by us, because they exist on another dimensions with higher frequency of the lifeforce (also called Prana or QI).

    The star systems that they inhabit can not be seen by our technology, because they also exist on another dimensions with higher frequency of the lifeforce. This frequency is rising for the earth and when it has risen far enough, we will be able to seem them.

    Yup.
    And I know people who say that crystals give you power and that the stars tell your fortune.
    Why should they be taken seriously?

    Yes and they are apparently magic crystals of the ingestible type.

    Which gives them zero credibility among anyone but fools.

    This question of exo-life is purely academic. There is nothing but speculation to support it, so you could as easily argue one side as another. If you tell me the star is too hot, I will find an orbital radius so far away it compensates, or some other excuse to argue the other side.

    As to the presence of intelligent aliens there, you would not have to assume they evolved, but were left behind in 1968 by an expeditionary team who were hired by Billy Meir to promote his brand:

    With any star, the amount of energy a planet receives is based on its distance. The further you are the less energy it gets. This more or less means that any star system has a habitable zone where life is possible under the right conditions.

    But as you noted, it's taken life nearly 4 billion years to evolve into us, with almost 90% of that time spent at the microscopic level. If this is any indication, that means that you need a good 3 billion years of micro-organism evolution before you start getting the groundwork for multicellular beings with an actual brain organ. And even then, it'll take another 500 million years to get something like us. These aren't hard and fast rules, especially since we only have one confirmed planet with life to study, Earth. But I think it works as in indicator to say it is highly unlikely that a star system 100 million years old would have evolved life comparable to our own.

    But even more salient, is the skepticism you should have for alleged alien contacts. Most of the UFO stuff is truly just silly and laughable, a small percentage is quite interesting as unexplained phenomena, but probably none of it is caused by interstellar visitors. Stories about alien abductions and/or contact with aliens is, for good or bad, a combination of hoaxes, lies, and weird (but well documented and understood) natural phenomena where people don't separate reality from fiction (i.e. sleep paralysis).
