What direction could life go otherwise?
Our main thing is to survive. That's what the theory of evolution says and the last time I've checked it was pretty accurate. We can't live without oxygen. But that's just how we are built based on our planet resources. Everything started from organisms so basic that they could adapt to basically everything.
I can imagine a vast, desolated planet of floating jelly-like creatures that are transparent and are feeding of the dust that is floating in the atmosphere. They have no goal in life whatsoever, they don't even have hands to do something. They just float and divide into two when they get bigger.
I don't like the vision of humanoid aliens with faces and shit. It isn't anything new. I always imagined aliens like something so much different that some people would deny it. Couldn't they have some attributes that are impossible for us and vice versa? Like we have consciousness and some species would be lighter than air.
What are /x/ theories of what could life do somewhere far far away?
