According tomedia reports, scientists speculate that there are complex life in every corner and crevice of the earth, formed by the “random shuffle” of inanimate substances, which form the cornerstone of life. Even so, scientists today lack the scientific basis to support this view. Researchers have recently been creative in exploring the possibility that life spontaneously originated from inorganic matter — a process known as The Unborn.
Professor Tomonoi Totani said: “I hope to find at least one realistic path to biological origin, using scientific language to explain the origin of life, and sometimes people think that the truth of the non-origin theory is very low, and that the scientific field cannot explain the origin of life, and as a scientist, I have dreamed of finding a scientific mystery that could explain how early humans were born.” “
Tomonori Totani’s study focuses on the main hypothesis that life as we know it originated in an RNA world, which holds that before the advent of protein and double-stranded genetic molecular DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), the world was dominated by similar but less efficient RNA molecules or RNA molecules.
In the RNA world, RNA is the first molecule to replicate and store information, as well as to initiate and accelerate chemical reactions, two basic features of life on Earth, and a more primitive molecular world for the chemical processes that define life today.
Although RNA molecules are primitive, they are made up of many chemicals called monomers, which are connected together to form polymers. Notably, RNA is made up of a nitrogen-based molecular chain called nucleotide base, and the researchers believe that in order for RNA to perform its basic function of replicating itself, it needs to consist of a nucleotide chain of more than 40-60 nucleotide bases in length.
So how did these RNA molecules, made up of 40-60 nucleotide sofenos, emerge out of thin air? Nucleotides can be randomly organized into RNA molecules with sufficient time and conditions, but these experiments show that as the nucleotide chain grows, the RNA population decreases rapidly, and no experiment can continuously produce more than 10 monomerRNA strands.
Tomonori Totani’s experiments have shown that RNA polymers can be formed through a basic random process, but these RNA strands are not replicable. But one problem is that the polymer can easily be mistaken for a long-chain RNA molecular polymer.
The experimental model uses the most conservative RNA aggregation method, with each individual being individually connected one by one until a single chain is formed. Scientists have pointed out that polymers, each of which is made up of multiple monomers, can combine to accelerate their formation, but the process is “highly speculative and hypothetical”.
Scientists believe that it was about 500 million years after the Earth formed that life forms were gradually born. It is estimated that there are 10 to 22 stars in the observable universe, so the probability of life in the vast universe is very high. But the researchers found that the possibility of randomly forming RNA strands larger than 40 monomers is very low, given the number of stars around Earth and the number of habitable planets, and that there are too few stars in the observable universe to have a place where no source can play a role within the time frame of the formation of life on Earth.
The universe is full of mysteries and unknowns, and the part of the universe we have explored so far is only the tip of the iceberg, and more mysteries are waiting to be solved. In contemporary cosmology, it is agreed that the universe has gone through a period of rapid expansion, producing a huge expansion region beyond what we can see directly. The inclusion of larger habitable planets in the non-biotic model significantly increases the probability of life appearing.
After the birth of the universe in the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago, and then the universe went through a period of rapid expansion that continues to this day, if we imagine the universe as a piece of bread baked in the oven, then we can observe that the universe is like a bubble trapped in a dough, the bubble wall is the longest distance since the Big Bang, when the universe expands like bread, the foam region we live in will expand, and the rest of the air in the bread will be more and more distant. The cosmic bubbles we observe are the maximum observed range, and in fact the region does not fully represent the entire universe.
It is estimated that the entire universe may contain more than 10 to 100 stars, given the huge number of stars in the universe, the emergence of extraterrestrial life is no longer impossible, but very likely to exist!
This may be good news for the RNA world hypothesis, although this may mean that the exploration of life in the universe is endless, and if life is initially started by RNA, then life on Earth will be created by the rare opportunity to produce long-chain RNA polymers, most likely, the Earth is the only planet with life within the observable universe, predicting that future observations and explorations of extraterrestrial life will not yield any positive results.
If extraterrestrial life is discovered by chance in other regions of the universe in which we live, they are likely to be similar to the originof of life on Earth, which may have traveled through interstellar space on comets and asteroids, sowing seeds of life somewhere in space.
