Short Post: Electromagnetic Life forms
June 3, 2010 7 Comments
If you are going in a interstellar mission in search of alien life, you should consider some basic prospects of life viz 1. how would they look like? ,2. what kind of metabolism they are using? 3. what kind of the waste they could generate like sulfur based life form will evolve SO2 gas? So what if you are in a alien planet and can’t find evidences of alien life except a large magnetic field variation on the planet? No waste! If this is the case, it may be an indication of electromagnetic life forms. Electromagnetic life forms would differ much to plasma based life forms. They could travel at the velocity of c. But how these life forms could evolve and what of metabolism they will be based upon? How much this life form will differ from carbon water based materialistic creatures? I don’t know, on what mechanism they will be based, yet as long as I can speculate, these life form would most likely be based upon some sort of photonic interaction. Photon is electromagnetic and behaves as the particle as well due to its dual nature. So, it may be possible that under extreme condition, it come to make life forms like other materials. Possibility is less, but it doesn’t run into hypothesis that such life forms could not exist. Why not let’s search for them?
