Phenomena in artwork: The Alien

Arrived with a dead planet gelatinous spores adapt to the life forms of the Earth and begin to copy them. First contact occurs with plants, so first aliens copy plant forms, creating a small flowering box. Being close to people, they take their form, pulling their person during sleep and killing the original.

Copying people boxes for quite large. Being close to a sleeping human, they reach out to him with malosoobrazitelnyh tentacles. Future copies emerge from the core boxes are underdeveloped, covered in white mucus and thin hairs. Initially they don't even have fingerprints. Over time, they acquire the characteristics of the people who copy down to injuries. After the completion of a duplicate original shrinking and turning to dust.

If the box is near a number of sleeping creatures and tentacles reaches out to both, the result of copying is a terrible mixture of the originals.

Alien copy are different from normal people lack of emotion. A person can pretend to be a stranger, when he does not show any visible feelings. Calm the aliens use to communicate with normal human speech, but to attract public attention make a loud high frequency sound.

The goal of the aliens is spreading across the planet and the gradual replacement of all men. The aliens have a high intellect (corresponding to the originals) and organization: some days they capture a huge city, has a large farm on cultivation of boxes, and adjust their deliveries to neighboring towns.
