Planetary models mimic molecular models

I have always been intrigued with the idea that molecular models mimic planetary models or visa a versa. If our solar system was a molecular model (without Pluto in the mix), We would represent oxygen on the molecular scale. Does this have a meaning, a galactic roadsign, or just something that is coincidence. Would like some thoughts on this area.

Just a coincidence. Because if you count the Sun as a nucleus, then you wouldn't know if it was an oxygen atom "model" or an ionized atom of another element.

I used to toy with the idea, the poster above explains basically why I gave up on the idea...
I had it all worked out in my head where each reality had two alternate realities; one existed in the objects around us (the atoms around you are solar systems and galaxies are staplers and whatnot) and our other alternate reality was the object or substance we were a part of; then each reality had alternates in the same way. But I don't believe it could work anymore.

This thread reminded me of a great little flash animation kind of what you are talking about. What would the Universe look like if we were able to zoom out? like a strand of DNA?

Here is a very interesting article I found today on Yahoo news. I think it may fit nicely here.

Astronomers Detect First Organic Molecule on an Exoplanet

"A team of astronomers led by Mark Swain of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena , Calif. , has made the first detection ever of an organic molecule in the atmosphere of a Jupiter-sized planet orbiting another star. The breakthrough, made with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, is an important step in eventually identifying signs of life on a planet outside our solar system.

The molecule found by Hubble is methane, which under the right circumstances can play a key role in prebiotic chemistry - the chemical reactions considered necessary to form life as we know it."

With this discovery would it be possible at this point to go ahead and begin starseeding?
If it is possible will the organic life even be compatible with the organic organism's that we could introduce?
Are we playing God or just assuring that in a billion years from now the possibility of human life will again exist should we perish from the face of the earth? der=down&sort=date&pos=0&view=a&head=b&box=Inbox
