We shouldn't discount 1.0. We might be reading 1.5 or something in between by now. I recall once class I took about the Dead Sea Scrolls because the Prof who was teaching discovered some of them, I went to his class. It turns out the ancient Hebrew was interpreted to read for Verse 1 of Genesis differently than we have it in the KJ BIBLE.
Hebrew text read that there were more than one Earths formed before this version. That raised an eyebrow for me as the Canonization of the Bible by the Catholic's wiped it from memory. Sticky detail for the Leadership of religions. Why wipe out the real statement if not to deceive us?
I think humans are odd animals. Somehow not like the others.
I believe we as a species serve a purpose we know nothing about.

“I don't think it had ever occurred to me that man's supremacy is not primarily due to his brain, as most of the books would have one think. It is due to the brain's capacity to make use of the information conveyed to it by a narrow band of visible light rays. His civilization, all that he had achieved or might achieve, hung upon his ability to perceive that range of vibrations from red to violet. Without that, he was lost.”
― John Wyndham, The Day of the Triffids
