    I found the following theory in one of the my old notebooks. I wrote this as a child and I do not remember writing it and where I got the information I used. I would to get this theory published.

    "Actually every planet has mobile creatures which may be made mobile or immobile by a certain amount of heat from a burning fire (sun energy). Actually all these creatures depend on each other from planet to planet, but it seems like the creatures in planet with high temperature are more powerful than the ones in planets with low temperatures and this makes the planet mercury the planet with the most powerful creatures followed by Venus the Earth, the ones in Mars, Asteroids, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

    The creatures powerful than the ones in planet Earth don't cope very well in the planet Earth before their adaptation which makes them easily controllable during their first evolution stages.

    Powerful here means the level of activity of a decided action like reproduction. A powerful creature here may mean a creature that reproduces itself by asexual reproduction and that creature can reproduce itself many times within a short interval of time. Take an example of some bacteria that reproduce asexually every 20 minutes while a human being reproduces sexually every 9 months. The bacteria will have multiplied thousand times before the human being multiplies by two."

    Science fiction?

    Actually, Venus has a higher temperature than Mercury, so you're wrong there. Also, Pluto isn't a planet anymore; so does Ceres have these creatures as well? What about Titan, or our moon? And the Asteroids aren't planets either.

    Look up the reproduction time of more creatures, and you'll find that your pattern doesn't hold. Also, please show evidence for creatures (life) on all the other planets.

    The OP starts with "as a child", so yeah, science fiction/fantasy.

    The atmosphere of Venus is the layer of gases surrounding Venus. It is composed primarily of carbon dioxide and is much denser and hotter than that of Earth. The temperature at the surface is 740 K (467 °C, 872 °F), and the pressure is 93 bar (9.3 MPa), roughly the pressure found 900 m (3,000 ft) underwater on Earth

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmosphere_of_Venus

    Tough life indeed to survive in these conditions

    Although

    The Mariana Trench or Marianas Trench[1] is the deepest part of the world's oceans. It is located in the western Pacific Ocean, an average of 200 kilometres (124 mi) to the east of the Mariana Islands, in the Western Pacific east of Philippines. It is a crescent-shaped scar in the Earth's crust, and measures about 2,550 km (1,580 mi) long and 69 km (43 mi) wide on average. It reaches a maximum-known depth of 10,994 metres (36,070 ft) (± 40 metres [130 ft]) at a small slot-shaped valley in its floor known as the Challenger Deep, at its southern end,[2] although some unrepeated measurements place the deepest portion at 11,034 metres (36,201 ft)

    However I also suspect life underwater where equalisation of pressure inside and ousouts of the life form is obtainable is easy compared with life on the surface of Venus where lead melts

    Yes, pressure in itself is irrelevant from the mechanical point of view, since any organism will experience the ambient pressure throughout its body.

    The real effect of pressure on life would be by way of the effect pressure has on chemical equilibria and reaction rates. For instance the solubility of gases in liquids goes up as the pressure rises. And chemical processes that lead to net evolution of gas (more gas molecules produced) will be inhibited as pressure goes up. And gases under pressure are in effect more "concentrated" (because more molecules per unit volume) so reaction rates will be more rapid than at lower pressure. Such things would be expected to alter greatly processes of metabolism and transport of dissolved gases around an organism.

    That is not to say that a high pressure environment must be intrinsically hostile to life, just that the biochemistry would need to be adapted to the conditions.

    I assume someone has already notified the mods that this is not appropriate for the science section, but just in case I will request that it is moved to the fringe section.

    I do not think I was working on a Science fiction story, there is some math below the theory.

    I think the point is that you do not have a theory, what you have is a made up fantasy about magical animals. It is not even very good science fiction since the whole idea is a bit too silly.

    Thanks. I'm digging out my old notebooks to find out more, will keep you updated. I still do not think I was writing some Science fiction story.

    As a child, I had thought that people got bigger via accumulation of cosmic dust--------the older ones I knew were bigger than the younger ones, including young adults--------------
    ok so i was wrong
