Can Self-Replicating Species Flourish in the Interior of a Star?



Quote:The existing view of biological life is that it evolves under suitable conditions in the low-temperature world of atoms and molecules on the surface of a planet. It is believed that any plausible extraterrestrial form of life must resemble the life on Earth that is ruled by biochemistry of nucleic acids, proteins, and sugars. Going against this dogma, we argue that an advanced form of life based upon short-lived species can exist inside main-sequence stars like our Sun.


Quote:Of course, attributing the anomaly in the luminosity of a star to nuclear life would be a very long shot. We just wanted to
emphasize that such unexplained anomalies do exist. Maybe, the answer to Fermi’s question: Where is everybody? can be
found in the least expected places.



Criticism from PBS Spacetime ->



'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'
