Dark Energy Is The Answer To Extraterrestrial Life

Posted on 3


Alien life may be extensive within the cosmos, suggests new scientific research. Recent findings propose that extraterrestrial life could be discovered with the continued study of Dark Energy.

Dark Energy is a strange “force” energy that is currently increasing the growth of the known universe. Could this then be proof of life on other planets?

A scientific theory suggests that there is a perfect balance of Dark Energy, which helps in the growth and development of life. Previously, it was believed that if there was additional or an inferior amount, the fabric that holds reality together would be ripped apart.

This ‘perfect’ amount of Dark Energy now means that the likelihood of life is not as rare as we once thought. 

Bringing in the concept of the multiverse – an idea that our universe is just one of an infinite number of such universes – then the chance of extraterrestrials being alive is also infinitely high.

The research was led by the Durham University and suggests life is a lot more common than we could ever imagine.

A research team at Durham teamed up with a number of scientists from universities in Australia produced a number of simulations with the EAGLE (Evolution and Assembly of Galaxies and their Environments). EAGLE is currently one of the most realistic simulations we have of the universe.

The team wanted to look at how a variety of Dark Energy levels might affect the development of life – more so on how it affects the formation of stars and planets.

The model simulations of an increased and decreased amount of Dark Energy still allowed for the creation of planets, stars and for life to evolve.

Pascal Elahi, a co-author on the research project and researcher for Western Australia University, said they wanted to know how much or less Dark Energy needed to exist before life could no longer develop.

Our simulations showed that the accelerated expansion driven by dark energy has hardly any impact on the birth of stars, and hence places for life to arise.

Even increasing dark energy many hundreds of times might not be enough to make a dead universe.

With the idea of the multiverse, there is an infinite number of universes, some that could have developed in similar ways to our own, and some that may have developed in a completely different way.


This aliens news was published in Monthly Notice of the Royal Astronomical Society.

However, the study into Dark Energy has put the theory of the multiverse into doubt. They say that if the multiverse theory was possible, then there should be at least 50 times more Dark Energy than there currently is in the universe.

Perhaps this smaller amount just means there is an unknown and undiscovered law of the universe that we are yet to unlock.

Extraterrestrial Life On Earth

Octopuses are aliens! A wild theory suggests octopus DNA evolved on another planet and traveled to Earth in a process called panspermia.

Scientists suggest that octopuses began there evolution on a different planet and their DNA was “cryopreserved” whilst it wandered through the galaxy, before finally making contact with our world.

Are octopuses alien to this planet?

‘Cause of Cambrian Explosion – Terrestrial or Cosmic?’ reported these amazing findings in their journal. The report compiled the work of 33 scientists and was recently published in the journal of “Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology.”

The paper report claims that the explosion of life during the Cambrian era could have only occurred due to the bombardment of organic molecules from the stars.

However, an even wilder theory evolved from this thinking. Scientists believe that octopuses, which appear to have only evolved here on planet Earth around 270 million years ago. This is important to note because this takes us to a point that is 250 million years after the Cambrian era.

This suggests that the octopus has somehow managed to evolve into a complex creature in such a short amount of time.

More Extraterrestrial Beings

The octopus has 33,000 protein-coding genes more genomes than modern-day man.

The octopus also has a fairly large brain for its size and has a very complex nervous system. It is also one of the most flexible animals on the face of the earth and has the ability to change the color of its skin. For an animal to be able to evolve such characteristics in a short time period is extremely fascinating.

The sudden explosion of octopus genes millions of years after the Cambrian era can plausibly be explained by the theory of panspermia. It is possible that the evolution of the octopus began on another planet, then some eggs containing DNA were trapped in the icy body of a meteor before traveling the distance of space and reaching Earth.

The form of an octopus has been used as an example of what an extraterrestrial life form may look like.
