Editor's Note: This story is more than just an UFOlogist tease. Our DNA consists of bits of "stardust" that arrived on earth from other planets and even other universes. The neighbour next door may be an alien but look in a mirror and realize we all share genes that form the universe. If you believe in the Biblical story of creation or believe as Zecharia Sitchin does, that were all genetically engineered by the Anunnaki from the 12th Planet, we all contains as the saying does, "the stuff of dreams".
Are Your Neighbours Aliens?

Aliens may be living among us, say two scientists, who argue we may even carry some alien genes.
Australian researchers Professor Paul Davies and Dr Charles Lineweaver outline their hypothesis in the latest issue of the journal Astrobiology.
They say the aliens in question are likely to be primitive microbes that sprang up some four billion years ago.
At this time the Earth was being buffeted by a hail of meteors and giant asteroids during what's known as the Archaean bombardment.
Alternately, microbial life forms may have arrived on Earth from space and unobtrusively co-existed with us.
Davies, of the Australian Centre for Astrobiology at Sydney's Macquarie University, admits the theory is speculative but says some of these microbes may have survived undetected to this day.
Multiple life events
He says statistics indicate there's a 95% chance of life on other Earth-like planets, a figure that he extrapolates to Earth itself.
"I think it's a possibility [there are aliens among us]," he says.
"The basic idea is that if life is easy to form as many astrobiologists suppose, then surely it should be formed more than once on Earth.
"From what we know about the early record of life on Earth it happened pretty fast once conditions became suitable.
"It's fairly easy to then work out the probability that if life began here on Earth, which is the most Earth-like planet there is, there's about a 95% chance that it would have done it more than once, maybe twice, three times. Who knows?"
Davies says the bombardment of the planet may have resulted in a series of "stop-go" experiments, in which life arose and was annihilated by successive bombardments. Story continues.
