I was just thinking *in a hypothetical sense* how the whole evolution of the universe may be similar. Other planets are most likely going to be similar in age to ours, although through randomonic events, the evolution may not complete or complete too early. This is kinda going into the hype about life on other planets. Is it highly advanded? Is it just purely microbes? Does it even exist at all? Well the answer is YES to all 3 of these questions. We (life) are not a fluke, and we can deny that all we want but all the evidence goes to show that life isn't a fluke. So, the only variable that determines how advanced a particular race or life form is, is the evolution of its planet and planetary system. It is all relative.
