A lot of people seem to forget that the difference between physical mass and life is simply in how it is arranged.
The keys to life are all there, In each particle. It just takes the proper dance to turn the atomic motors and gears into a mechanism of precision and
Our body is still only made of 4 basic elements in most abundance Carbon Nitrogen Oxygen and Hydrogen.
Together with those elements alone we get Air. Isn't that something funny to put into perspective?
We breath in what we are made of, Of course the percentages vary and there are subtle gases like hylium as well as minerals and metals like iron
magneium boron sodum ect ect But me main components besides the trace minerals are the 4 basic elements i mentioned.
And of course these trace don't have all atoms the basic elements have because the trace minerals are elements themselves
So literally everything we are made of already exists externally. So what makes us different? It's the way the Atom's are arranged into *Living*
I'm sure there is some force that would unlock the living energy within mass to create apoptosis. But i believe that such an event would be rare in
Life may spread from a newly created galaxy in such a way, But after that. Planetary collisions *That contained life* Send asteroids hurling through
space that eventually strike a planet like our own in the sheer probability of it all.
It very well could seed life, Likewise. Advanced organisms such as a spore or insects could colonize planets via Asteroid collisions specifically.
WE are a T0 race, And it's very possible plants, insects, fungus as well as viruses could be living as T1 *Species* (Their whole animal linage in
such a case)
Because of the ability of seeds, Spores, Dormant shells As well as hibernation states well being encased in rock.
There are some amazing organisms that can survive planetary collisions.
Even humans by probability can survive falls from near orbit. It has happened before. There has been quite a few sky divers that couldn't pull their
shoot and just straight up fell. And survived. Not everyone dies falling amazing heights. We call them miracles. Now think of organisms that are
billions of years old, Not needing to advance more than what it singularly is, Many remain in the basic forms of external bacteria and not internal
bacteria. Tho internal bacteria make up all life on planet Earth * Lol* without them we wouldn't have a digestive system.
So if there is proof of anything colonizing planets in the Milky way. It's Tiny Organisms flying in debris from planet to planet. Then lurking in the
atmosphere or entering in with the asteroid to become a meteor.
