LIFE BEYOND II: The Museum of Alien Life (4K)

    What if there was a museum that contained every type of life form in the universe? This experience takes you on a tour through the possible forms alien life might take, from the eerily familiar to the utterly exotic, ranging from the inside of the Earth to the most hostile corners of the universe.
    New research is upending our idea of life and where it could be hiding: not just on Earth-like planets, where beings could mimic what our planet has produced, but in far flung places like the hearts of dead stars and the rings of gas giant planets. Nowhere in the universe is off limits.
    Only when we know what else is out there will we truly know ourselves. This thought experiment will give us a glimpse into what could be out there, how we might find it, and just how far nature’s imagination might stretch.

      It's things like these that make me sad I was not born in the Era of intergalactic travel, yet hopeful for those who come after me. March on and stay hydrated

      I truly admire space and love the idea of finding alien life, but we have to remember to put our planet first before seeking others. - Allyanna Nygaard 2021


      That shouldn't even be free on the internet. I paid museum ticket for much less.

    15. Heks i pose

      Man! This is amazing work. I'm blown away. Everything put together, music, visuals, narrator. It's fantastic! The music fits perfectly too. *applause*

    16. House Richards

      I prefer channels that only produce the highest quality videos on a slow basis.

    17. Prime Time

      Will we find intelligent life? Could it be somewhere on Earth? Could it be MelodySheep. This video was handcrafted by MelodySheep. The. search. has. ended.

      Thinking of impossible has always accelerated humanity towards better understanding. To think about alien life on other planets or places that are unknown, you just take yourself ahead and though not sure of the outcome you get to know which path was wrong for the least. The ideas presented in this video might be true or might not be, but one day for sure we will know what we are and what this universe is. Well, kudos to melodysheep for presenting such work of art. It's just fabulous.

      We look out to our universe And wounder when you look in microscopic you see these forms. Identify flying objects The Fallen angels Demons are here getting ready for the attack the rapture will happen GOD will take his people They will blame the UFOS they we will attack are citys we win One comes forward the world loves satan will have his thrown.

    41. Tristan TheChristian

      My accepted thought that anything that is not human or beast is angel or fallen angel. Or the offspring of fallens angels: Nephilim. These beings appeared as giants, but with the elite and their plan, they can take whatever forms they wish. Especially if their true desire is to decieve. People will say its not true, and they are the blind ones. Read the book of Enoch. It's God's proof.

      Or self replicating machines could spell the end of life depending on their fuel, if biofuel they will consume any living thing and if oxygen they would be mechanical organisms

      Maybe one day the human brain will evolve from craziness and illusion to commonsense. Until then the human sick mind will continuous generated videos like this. Humans have everything they need here on Earth, but still are looking for their extinction.

      1. Pavel Lupu

        ​@Morgan Sutherland they are made to support the life. many thing you can only watch but not touch. think about!

      2. Morgan Sutherland

        You actually think the all creator made other worlds and suns and planets just to look at?? The creators designs have no flaws or faults everything has a purpose and a reason....other alien life would be a testament to there being a designer of it all.

    55. Pablo Solimeo

      I believe in aliens now

    56. ty nechee

      Before the iconic alien head. Was that muscular looking beast a rat humanoid? Thats a terrifying evolution.

    69. BlueSkyEagle

      👏 Great

    70. Rokmononov

      I genuinely can't wrap my mind around how someone can make this in a few months. Even if you're using literally all pre-built assets and plunking them into Blender scenes and rendering them, I still see like...years of work. I truly don't get it. So impressive.

    71. Pahari Bihari

      Why aren't we talking about the different dimensions that exists beyond our understanding too

    72. zerocool1ist

      I keep on saying we are the aliens! The materials it took to make life on this planet possible came from the furthest reaches of space. Truth is always stranger then fiction.

      would you rather know if there are aliens out there or know exactly how the universe will end

    75. Maki Nishikino

      Some government official watching this is probably like "Yeah let's build that"

    76. Brayan González

      I love this kind of videos

    77. Wesley Hager

      This video is better than most Netflix shows. It's beautiful and informative and in combination with the haunting music, it's truly stunning.

    78. Nico Bautista

      esto abla de algo que me interesa pero no abla de lo que yo quiero


      Now that's some SICK *CGI* 3d Barbie animators stood no chance! Ok actually jokes aside..... _This was very terrifying and interesting at the same time.... i love SEprom for this_ So much we learned and still we feel like we know nothing! THE UNIVERSE....... *_FASCINATING_*

    80. Paprika Harris

      Honestly .. I feel bad watching this for free when there is so much garbage I pay for on Netflix... hats off 👁👄👁👍🏼

      this just makes me want to play destiny


      this video was so amazing. your graphics and sound quality was so amazing i got no words for it. you can make graphic and sound for marvel and dc movies too and at last the information that you gave was great. all of the questions that i ever thought about universe was answered by you. THANK YOU SO MUCH. i will always be curious about universe

    86. WØÑDËRÊR

      guys those of you who are blown away by the amount of work that melodysheep did on this, and want to support him more consider buying the original soundtrack on bandcamp..... this will help him directly

    87. Robert Paradis

      From nothingness, our origin, to nothingness, our destination. Wow ! 😱

    88. FACT0RYPIL0T

      Aliens are far more advanced, and not so screwed up in there societys as earth is in ongoing manipulation of its people through greed and control over the population for agendas hidden from society.

    89. Lord Sprkk

      I’ve watched this maybe 10+ times now

    90. Petros Heinrich

      Evolution meaning transformism isn't real. Check your principles with Aristotle's. And I wonder why theses creatures are so devil looking, maybe it's a hint.

      1. Rat Smacker

        They are devil looking? Maybe it's a hint? Yeah, a hint that you've been conditioned to see anything as demon looking if it doesn't jive with you your worldview.

      2. Rat Smacker

        Like, what?

      3. Rat Smacker

        Bro what

    91. Matthew Kashnig

      There's always a finite amount of consciousnesses that need filling after we die so many planets out there that have life that's pretty much guaranteed that some of the stuff exist and before the universe is over we'll have been there and done that

      Hey, noticed you threw the xenomorphs in there. Nice

    94. Joel Ebert

      People who reject the idea of a Creator haven't even begun to explain the origin of life, let alone get started on life elsewhere in the universe. And the Fermi paradox, last time I checked, is still a paradox. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. This video is strictly in the realm of entertainment.

      1. Atheist Mando

        Allow me to specify that a creator of any scale would be a creator in which we find no means of conceptualizing for ant good reason, or intent. The creator must abide by the natural laws, and gradual understanding of the universe. This creator would have not a need to have an evil. As it is alpha, and omega. The evil, and good of all life. It would not be the chaotic neutral in this chaotic universe that is keen in our destruction via chance. The issues of this god. This creator. Is that it has never been conceptualized in any religious media in which humans have constructed. As all do not abide with the reality in which we see the development of the universe. It would be a god that wishes not to be worshipped. For that worshipping of it becomes unecessary. It does not grant knowledge. As the knowledge is only granted by that of one's own enginuity, and not that of a deity. If our enginuity is suaded to follow this deity, we would not be conflicted in morals, ethics, technological advancment, political discourse, and religious dogma in which we fight for over the millenium for supremacy. It is a god that will not intervine with the natural cycle, and if does so, is to break down the status quo via social experiments on a celestial level, and not that of a individualistic level. Because out of the octillions of worlds, and the trillions of galaxies. What would make us special to a god? Why burden right do we have in praising its existence? What purpose would it give other than dogmatic supremacy amonst the stars to please said god. Its existence is irrelevent, and will only lead to the regressional collapse of society by infringing on the rights of species, gender, race, and sexuality alike. Even to the extent of which, culture may be abolished so that only one culture is left. An example of this xenophobia, would be the imperium of man. And how they will choose inter-galactic genocide for a god, instead of looking to better egalitarian prosperity with neutrals such as the eldar, Tau empire, and the Necron dynasty.

      2. Rat Smacker

        @Joel Ebert Oh for fuck's sake- I will ignore everything else you said for a moment and ask you this: Where did I admit to having faith in naturalism?

      3. Joel Ebert

        @Rat Smacker Again, you need to think through these things a little harder. You have faith in naturalism, by your own admission. Now about mutations, change is not neutral. The reason is simple: there are far more chemical configurations with no biological functionality than there are configurations with biological functionality. Therefore, random changes tend to be bad for biological systems, which is just demonstrably true. Take your pick of examples of evolution in action, and they involve either a shuffling of existing code or a deterioration of genetic systems. Lenski's experiments with bacteria demonstrate this wonderfully. There was a fascinating recent paper about the H1N1 virus, in which the geneticists showed definitively that it mutated itself out of existence over the course of its evolution. It's called "A New Look At An Old Virus." The evidence favors design for anyone willing to consider it.

      4. Rat Smacker

        @Joel Ebert I called you a fool because you accused me of filling the gaps in my knowledge with naturalistic explanations, even though I made it clear that I'm not filling them with any explanations yet. Mutations in DNA lead to one thing: Change. Whether that change is an improvement or a degradation is completely irrelevant, because evolution isn't a conscious being that makes active decisions regarding a species' future. If a species evolves to have a longer tail, you could call that an addition, if it evolves a shorter tail you could call that a degradation. It doesn't matter, as long as something changes over time it is evolving, do you understand that? DNA mutations over time produce very noticeable changes. Evolution is the word for change over time. Also, if god's designs are so susceptible to degradation then what does that say about god's skill as an engineer?

      5. Joel Ebert

        @Rat Smacker It's hard to talk to people who can't get past their prejudices. Don't be so quick to call people fools. Is there evidence for design in biology? That's a funny question, since evolution is supposed to explain (away) the appearance of design. I mean, you're swimming in it. A good place to start is mutations. Accidental changes to DNA do not lead to an increase in complex biological functionality, they lead to degradation (it's just statistics). This suggests that someone purposefully programed DNA of living things a certain way, and making accidental changes is a departure from that original purpose.
