I think what is extraordinary is before we had all of these way to observe the rest of the Universe, many assumed that all other planets (especially
religions thought this) were DEAD...just spheres with no use.
Through our sciences and technology, we learned that lightening is a huge factor in the beginnings of life. The more we find that building blocks for
life exists elsewhere...the more we start to understand...Earth might not be the only special place in this vastness.
I picture Earth in its early days...and see a place of HUGE chaos. It was probably somewhat nightmarish. Similar to how we see some of the planets
right now. They could be in the very early stages of producing a place of life, just as Earth did long long ago.
It just helps me respect looking beyond Earth and not being so full of myself as a human to think 'this is it and all there is'.
If we see gas, volcanoes, lightening ect on the planets in our own solar system. Why would this stuff not be going on in the millions of other solar
It broadens the horizon....
