Life on Earth has existed for many hundreds of millions of years and in our humanoid form, for only the last 10,000.
It is the author’s belief that considering the vastness of space and the sheer numbers of stars, it is highly probable we are not alone and that parallel or very different life forms have evolved elsewhere. Within our solar system they will certainly be far more primitive than us but as we move out to the stars the chances of life comparable or more advanced increase.
Our nearest star is Proximo Centuari about 5 light years away and at 8.3 light years distant is Lalande 21185 in the constellation Ursa Major. This latter star has two confirmed planets in orbit which are gas giants like Jupiter. It is only a matter of time before we find a star in the Milky Way with an earth size planet orbiting at a distance where heat, light, water and oxygen are optimal for life to evolve, possibly similar to our own. We are already identifying hundreds of stars with planets orbiting them and some of these are in the habitable zone [see later post].
There are wonderful sights in space. Just look at this video of The Monkey Head nebula. This immense mass of gas and dust is a factory for birthing new stars. Amazing!
However, in other galaxies, where conditions could be very different from the Milky Way, who knows what kind of beings may have evolved and what level of intelligence they have achieved? Enter the Dicepterons.
The Blue People of Cloud Planet is about one fictitious star in our galaxy called Seren which is 10 light years from Earth. This star has an orbiting planetary system including an optimally positioned world called Cloud Planet. What kind of life might have evolved here?
