I saw something interesting last night. Scientists have discovered that under the right conditions plasma can become organized into helical structures that can interact with each other in ways that are associated with life. The article says they can dived to from two copies of the or the original structure.
I thought this was very interesting. It reassures my belief that there is other life in the universe. I think there is life in forms that we couldn't even imagine. They could use processes we couldn't begin to understand. We shouldn't be too arrogant and ignorant to actually believe Earth is the only planet with life and we're the only intelligent life.
