That's why nearly all the known universe is devoid of it.
Nearly all the known universe ?
Assuming that we have explored the biggest part of it ?!!?!?!
Did Star Trek and Star Wars really happen while I was in cryo stasis?
Nearly all the known universe is empty space, and most matter (well, maybe not dark matter) exists as giant balls of plasma. I'm not going out on too flimsy of a limb to say that there is no life in these places.
you're not going out on too flimsy of a limb...but you're pulling my leg...right ?
You can't be serious.
Our imagination on what kind of life may have evolved on other planets
is too hindered by what we know exists and has evolved on this particular planet
and the science that we know binds it to this kind of environment...
....and that is being also put into question further below...
We've not even explored our own environment enough
and we keep finding things about life forms here on earth we could never have imagined.
We have no idea what dark energy even is, so it's wildly speculative that it might be teeming with life.
Many things were wildly speculative...until we found out otherwise...
And to give you a small example...biologists used to speculate that life could not exist at extremely low temperatures below zero.
They now know of the Pterostichus sp. or more commonly Arctic Beetle or Carabe Arctique...
This fella can withstand ( as lab tests have shown ) temperatures as low as -81Co
by producing Glycerol as the temperatures drop.
Glycerol lowers the freezing temperature of the blood (hemolymph) and other liquids in the insect's body, and prevents the formation of ice crystals that would rupture its cells and kill it.
I strongly believe that there is more life out there...of many different kinds
Kinds of life that when we will come to contact with or discover them we'll go " OOOOH SHIIIIIIIT!!!! "
because they will be something that until the time we saw them, could not have imagined the could exist.
Oh and something else...how would you exactly define "known" universe ?
I mean...we don't know cock...seriously.
