Life is one of the hardest things to define its the reason we cannot decide if there is life on other planets and even if any other planet can even support life. Well lets look at that for a second first with is life well to know that we must first know what living is.
- The property or quality that distinguishes living organisms from dead organisms and inanimate matter, manifested in functions such as metabolism, growth, reproduction, and response to stimuli or adaptation to the environment originating from within the organism.
- The characteristic state or condition of a living organism.
Now from these definition’s we can tell weather or not life on other planets is possible and where and what it might be like.
Well first is life on other planets possible. Well the answer is YES. The fact is the defamation of life is huge, life may not be out there but we don’t know because life can be in any form or shape. In fact i think that if there is life out there it will be nothing like humans, It could need acid to live and water would kill it. Life may even excises in the space between planet’s feeding off Stellar dust, sun light and radiation. There could be forms of life that would make our sun look like an ant compared in size, something that big would need a massive amount of energy to live, and that’s where problems arise most people can’t think of something like this because they apply rules of life on earth to it. Well that can’t be done the fact is you must think of it logically something that big will logically use almost no energy to live or would use a massive amount. Now where would it get all that energy? It’s actually quite simple it would get the energy from everything possible, for it is simply not logical that something that big would get its energy from one place of source. The fact is something that big could get its energy from places we as humans could never see being possible, For instance something that big would have its own gravity and a core well a life form like this could be using its own gravity as a source of energy giving itself a limitless source of energy, It could feed on stars, black hole’s, Even Time itself. As far as human knowledge goes we don’t know much about what maybe out there and what rules apply. I mean if you think about it a Black hole could be alive, it consumes a massive amount of matter and energy even light, they are born and they die in a sense, they may even grow from mini black holes the size of and atom to super black holes larger than stars.When look at in this manner you can see that life can be anything any where.
But that would mean that things that aren’t alive may seam that way because they do things that living things do.
And that’s where consciousness comes in for this alone is all that is needed to be alive none of the other things are needed it does not need to at reproduce or do work it must just be consciousness. Now with this view life can be anything to the point where there is nothing that can be excluded well i can for instance lets go with something you would never have thought of. Space dust and i don’t mean clusters of dust i mean one speck of space dust. it could think for all we know.
And that’s where i leave this life can be anywhere any size and made of anything. So the next time you see something or here someone saying life can only be on earth smack them and ask them if there using that tiny brain they don’t know what life can be or where it can be none of us do hell we use to think the sun moved around us and that stars were holes in the dark so think before you speak and smack the moron again.
