Anthropomorphic bias: Things called “living” seem to all have at least SOME parallels to us humans.

Our ability to discover planets is very new to astronomy as is the search for signs of ET life via new planet discoveries. 

I think our criteria for “life” is very limited at the moment. Anthropomorphic bias: Things called “living” seem to all have at least SOME parallels to us humans.

So yes, I think we’re missing a lot.

 

Agreed. I think we need some advances in bridges between chemistry and biology. There’s some speculative work done. For as long as I know there’s always been a subset of scientists who believe that some forms of crystals may actually be living.

The borderline of life/non-life is a fascinating field.
