Gaian Bottleneck

Gaian Bottleneck

This recent research of the 
searching mind:
points to the rarity of feedback cycles
preventing runaway heating or cooling..
This is the mind's struggle
to proceed beyond this duality:
to discover illusive Life..
Bottlenecks of separation arise
seeming separation of heat and cool
denying the unity which is undeniable..
The mind has reached its limit and
external confirmation is made..
It seems we all await
the discovery that illusive Life
will be discovered only upon
recognition of separation's veil 
by the frustrated searching mind..!

"The mystery of why we haven't yet found signs of aliens may have less to do with the likelihood of the origin of life or intelligence and have more to do with the rarity of the rapid emergence of biological regulation of feedback cycles on planetary surfaces," says Aditya Chopra at Australia National University.

"The universe is probably filled with habitable planets, so many scientists think it should be teeming with aliens," Chopra adds. "Early life is fragile, so we believe it rarely evolves quickly enough to survive. Most early planetary environments are unstable. To produce a habitable planet, life forms need to regulate greenhouse gases such as water and carbon dioxide to keep surface temperatures stable."

In a cogent answer to physicist Enrico Fermi's famous paradox --if intelligent life exists in the Milky Way, where are they? Life on other planets would likely be brief and become extinct very quickly, say astrobiologists from The Australian National University (ANU). In research aiming to understand how life might develop, the scientists realized new life would commonly die out due to runaway heating or cooling on their fledgling planets.

A plausible solution to Fermi's paradox, say the ANU researchers, is near universal early extinction, which they have named the Gaian Bottleneck....continued below at the link...
