I was saw a thing about this cave that had been sealed deep underground for thousands/millions of years. The entire cave was full of eyeless, white insects that lived off a fungus in water, it lived off a gas (sadly i can't remember which). It just goes to show that you don't always need sunlight for life.

But think about this, we breathe oxygen why? Because we evolved to breathe it, that is how OUR body functions. What is stopping life on another planet, from breathing Methane? CO2?
How does oxygen differ from any other Gas? If you really think about it, there is no difference. Well...You know what I mean.

,but how active will that life force be under temperatures of about -80 degrees celcius. Ok so maybe it's in suspended animation ,some kind of prolonged hibernation. Could it survive hundreds of millions of years in this state?
