Are you freamin insane?
But, if you believe we evolved from bacteria (and we behave like bacteria sometimes) then the bi-pedal model is very likely. Look how complicated we are. Look at your hands and feet, all those bones and all in instant contact with your brain. This took millions of years.
So, I suspect that our out-planet brothers and sisters are fairly similar in construction with adjustments for their gravity level. We may be ugly, but our design is quite clever and explicable.
Now, are there hive-minds and energy-beings. I sure hope so but likely everyone is just as wonderfully simple and complex as we are. And I think there are lots of them, in various tages of development. In 1000 years, we won't look like we do now but the principle will remain the same.
I suppose. I could be wrong.
Now, if this is a god design, we might find terrific variances since god would not want all its eggs in our one basket.

How to experience life on Mars.
1. Go in your house or apartment.
2. Stay there.
You are now experiencing living on a station in Mars.
To experience the trip, piles lots of food and water in a walk-in closet with a porta potty and potty bags. Go stay in it for 6 months. You are now traveling to Mars. Nothing is more exciting that a total void.
It is amazing for anyone to actually think that while we can't collectively manage earth, we could do so on a barren and atmosphere-less distant planet.
No one has given a reason, any purpose, to putting a station on Mars. Why not a station in a deep ocean trench instead?
