Alien Minds

 

     What do we really know about minds, even human minds? We know that they differ, but that still leaves a lot to find out. What do we think about? Are there basic concerns that all thinking beings share?

Energy (probably some kind of food)

Liquid (probably water)

Reproduction

Some way of dealing with predators or threats

Things that the aliens might provide for themselves:

Shelter

Tools
