Descriptions of life

December 20, 2010 § Leave a comment

I wrote a simulation that generates random stars, planets and moons
having similar variation to what we see around us. The simulation was
part of a large computer game project that needed to extend the universe
realistically (with realistic variation and proportions) filling in details beyond
which we can observe. The simulation also simulated the planet environment
based on planet size and distance to sun. One of the fun features of the
simulation was to add life in some of these cases where the environment
was suitable for life. I consulted with astrobiology David Darling towards the
end of writing the algorithm and regarding the most advanced species he
emphasised a higher frequency for underwater life versus land life
reaching higher intelligence. Some of the results are a lot of fun to read so
I have published a few examples of the output here:

Ovax: 3rd planet The planet’s environment is hard with magnificent
splits within the surface. The planet’s most sophisticated species has
the appearance of a primitive brown fungus. The creature reproduces by
male and female exchanging genes in large groups and discharging a
series of strings each with a small nodule that explodes to distribute
new cells. This is vastly the most sophisticated form of life on the
planet.

Ounpee: 3rd planet The planet’s surface is rocky and the most
interesting life form breeds on the planet’s surface. It appears as a
slippery brain-like lattice which long ago settled at this planet from a
distant star. Propagation involves meeting in large groups and executing
mental exercises to locate the greatest of each gender.

Rhyuf Spu: 3rd planet The surface environment of the planet is gaseous
and the most advanced form of life exists high above the planet’s
surface. It is likely to have taken control of its own evolution
millions of years ago for it now appears as an immense soup of
sub-atomic particles. It can be observed that the species shares
information with others by firing particles in a structured format. The
creature can generate great magnetic fields in any region within its
widely spread body and by collecting and firing off unwanted mass it is
able to accelerate throughout space.

Eubzie: 2nd planet The surface environment of the planet is volatile and
gaseous and the dominant form of life lives near the surface. This
species is essentially nothing more than a highly intricate electrical
network acting as a single mind. It is believed that this intriguing
creature reproduces by chemical changes triggered by the star’s
radiation. This species has travelled throughout outerspace and has
successfully inhabited another planet of a distance star.

Oimgo: 8th planet The planet is very hot and gaseous and the dominant
life form may have once been a gas cloud but now exists as an immensely
complex electrical field that amalgamates itself within planets and
stars. It is understood that this intriguing creature reproduces by the
production of basic elements catalyzed by the star’s radiation. The
creature shares information with others by uniting their networks
together to work a single life form. This species is involved in
historical research with various species from distant stars.

Tec: 1st planet The planet’s surface is gaseous and the most
sophisticated form of life is essentially nothing more than a highly
intricate electrical network acting as a single brain. This species has
modified its form over millions of years to prepare for changes
throughout the universe calculated long ago.

Wuax: 1st planet The surface of the planet is cool and gaseous and the
dominant life form exists in the warmer denser regions within planet.

by flashing ultraviolet light. This species has travelled to many other
planets in distant stars.

Vi Seu: 3rd planet The surface environment of the planet is volatile and
gaseous and the planet’s most advanced life form exists in the warmer
denser regions within planet. This species is essentially nothing more
than a highly elaborate network of biological wires acting as a highly
effective mind. It can be observed that the species communicates to
others by firing neutrinos. This advanced species ceased its natural
evolution millions of years ago after modifying itself to survive almost
anywhere in the universe.

Spite: 3rd planet The surface environment of the planet is gaseous and
the most interesting form of life may have once been a gas cloud but now
exists as an immensely complex electrical parasite that amalgamates
itself within planets and stars. The communication with members of its
species involves shooting neutrinos to produce a single larger network.
This species has travelled throughout outerspace and collects
information with great curiosity.

Floemea: 4th planet The planet has an unremarkable sandstone surface
with a thin atmosphere. The dominant life form has evolved on the
surface of the planet and it covers large areas of the planet as ferns.

Squyus Rhe: 2nd planet The planet has a solid and sandy surface with
violently windy conditions. The planet’s most sophisticated life form
breeds on the planet’s surface. This life form appears as a large
sausage-shaped structure that remains with others in vast groups. It is
understood that this species reproduces by the mating of numerous
genders. This species has travelled to many other planets in distant
stars.

Bog: 3rd planet The planet’s surface is hot and gaseous and the planet’s
dominant species is impossible to be seen because of its sparse gaseous
structure. It is capable of splitting into separate structures to
propagate more effectively or stay as a large structure to consolidate
its observations and solve difficult problems. It is understood that
this species reproduces by the focus of energy permitting endothermic
reactions involving the duplication of particles within the vast life
form. This species has travelled throughout outerspace and collects data
about the universe to advance its immortality.

Euvoobs: 4th planet The planet is hot and gaseous and the most advanced
form of life exists below the planet’s surface. It can be described as a
vast array of silicon circuits acting as a single brain. Propagation
involves continuously dividing itself and creating new mass.

Eomluiszae: 1st planet The planet’s surface can be seen to be very rocky
with an arid appearance. The most advanced life form appears as a large
mushroom-like plant-creature overwhelming the planet. The continuation
of life involves the mating of male and female permitting natural
selection. Despite being highly primitive this life form is considered
exceptionally rare and the planet has become strictly protected under
common intergalactic law.

Ouzeu: 1st planet The planet has an unremarkable solid and sandy surface
with virtually no atmosphere. The most advanced life form exists as a
giant sponge-like structure which has evolved to become dependant upon

and with the vast radioactive waste now being dumped on the planet the
presence of this most interesting species might now be something of the
past.

Kaidki: 6th planet The planet’s surface is gaseous and the most
interesting species has a gaseous form. It can fit between the molecules
of various loose solids and this species has propagated throughout
outerspace and has successfully inhabited another planet of a distance
star.

Ipcoi: 1st planet The planet’s surface is coarse with a thick gaseous
atmosphere and has liquid regions deep within the planet warmed by the
planet’s core. The most interesting species lives deeply within the
planet and this species has the appearance of a growth of roots with
hard-shelled seeds. It is understood that this remarkable creature
reproduces by the duplication of its fundamental elements triggered by
the star’s radiation. Despite there having been one notable explosion in
the complexity of life in the past, this is the most highly developed
form of life that has continued to survive after the planet became a
popular radioactive waste dump.

Yonao: 3rd planet The planet has a rather featureless granite surface
with a thin atmosphere. The most sophisticated species appears as a tall
leafy plant with grey spots. This most sophisticated life form has
declined significantly following global temperature changes.

most sophisticated species appears as a slippery brain-like structure
which has evolved to become dependant upon technology in order to
transport itself and survive. The species increases its population by
many performing mental exercises to select which will go on to
reproduce. The creature communicates to others by vibrating and it
places learning as its highest objective.

Pleine: 3rd planet The planet’s surface is rocky and has liquid regions
deep within the planet warmed by the planet’s core. The planet’s most
interesting life form mostly lives slightly below the surface of the
planet. It is a highly elaborate network of biological wires functioning

and the most sophisticated species lives over the planet’s surface. This
life form moves very slowly and has the basic shape of a crab with a
soft shell. It is believed that this species reproduces by the mating of
three genders. Two species on the planet have begun a recent conflict
for the major control of resources.

Sleist Tzoa: 8th planet The planet has large watery regions and the
planet’s dominant species covers large areas of the planet as fungi.
Despite there having been one notable explosion in the complexity of
life in the past, this has become the most highly evolved form of life
that has continued to exist after radioactive waste started being dumped
on the planet.

Oboo: 1st planet The environment of the planet is solid and sandy with
deep canyons and the planet’s most sophisticated species appears as a
giant worm-like lattice which has evolved to become dependant upon
technology in order to transport itself and survive. The communication
with members of its species involves releasing rapid high-pitch noises.
Various species on the planet are fighting for their conflicting
philosophies.

Flyifye: 1st planet The planet is cool and gaseous and the most
sophisticated life form exists high above the planet’s surface. This
creature is not easy to see because of its sparse gaseous form and it is
likely to have immigrated from a distant solar system. Reproduction
involves endothermic reactions involving the gradual transformation of
common planet matter into particles that link to the creature’s
electrical network.

Eesze: 6th planet The planet’s surface is rocky with an arid appearance
and the planet’s dominant life form lives on the hard surface of the
planet where it can absorb the star’s rays. It has an astonishing

from the dark blue spongy plant-like body. The communication with
members of its species involves the passing of radio waves.

Joozjae: 1st planet The surface environment of the planet is volatile
and gaseous and the planet’s most sophisticated life form lives well
above the surface. It took control of its natural evolution millions of
years ago for it now lives as a mysterious soup of sub-atomic particles.
Reproduction involves continuously dividing itself and creating new
mass.

Dete: 3rd planet The planet has great watery regions and the planet’s
dominant life form lives on the planet’s surface. This creature has an

mountains and the planet’s dominant life form mostly lives below the
planet’s surface. This species moves with fast twitches and has the
basic shape of a crab with a soft and moist shell. The creature
exchanges information with others by the expression of low-pitch sound
discharges. Various species on the planet are fighting for the major
control of resources.

Ueneyg: 1st planet The planet’s surface is cool and gaseous and the
planet’s most sophisticated species is essentially nothing more than a
highly elaborate network of biological wires functioning as a highly
effective mind. It is understood that this intriguing creature
reproduces by the production of its basic elements activated by the
absorption of nuclear radiation generated within the planet. The
communication with members of its species involves radio waves and the
creature can generate extremely high temperatures anywhere within itself
and by collecting and firing off unwanted mass it is able to accelerate
throughout space.

Czeyts: 7th planet The planet has a liquid surface below very little
atmosphere and the most interesting species hibernates for most of its
life and has a cockroach-like form with a semi-transparent skin.
Propagation involves the breeding of two genders resulting in natural
selection. This species has established colonies on other stars.

hard with heavy volcanic activity. The planet’s most advanced species
lives on the planet’s surface and it has the appearance of a tall
shrub-like plant mostly red in colour. The creature reproduces by a
partnership of male and female.

Shaenye: 4th planet The planet has a rather featureless sandstone
surface with a thick gaseous atmosphere. The dominant form of life lives
on the solid surface of the planet where it can absorb the star’s rays.
This species is akin to a simple but uncommon carbon-based life form and
this largest known life form has declined almost to extinction owing to
changes within the atmosphere.

planet’s most interesting life form covers large areas of the planet as
moss meadows. This primitive species remains vastly the dominant life
form on the planet.

Beom: 1st planet The planet’s surface is gaseous and the most advanced
life form exists near the planet’s core. This species took control of
its natural evolution some billion years ago and now lives as a great
electrical field. It is understood that this type of creature reproduces
by continuously dividing itself and creating new mass.

Klujeo: 3rd planet The planet has large liquid regions and diverse
minerals below the surface. The planet’s most interesting life form is
found on the surface of the planet. It has an almost human-like
appearance with one difference being that it is much more alert and
intelligent and has smaller eyes. The creature communicates to others by
a form of speech and a group involving this species was largely
responsible for the design of the anti-gravity devices that have become
standard within modern spacecrafts.

Devry: 4th planet The planet’s surface is volatile and gaseous and the
planet’s most advanced species exists deeply within the planet. It has a
thick gaseous appearance and it is capable of travelling throughout
space without being observed. It is believed that this species
reproduces by endothermic reactions involving the transformation of the
planet’s matter into materials that then act as part of the total brain.

Prionqui: 1st planet The planet’s surface can be seen as coarse and the
dominant life form lives on the solid surface of the planet exposed to
the star’s energy. This life form has the appearance of a carbon-based
multiplying cell.

Sciakpau: 4th planet The planet’s surface can be seen to be stony and
coarse and has liquid regions deep within the planet warmed by the
planet’s core. The planet’s most interesting species lives on the hard
surface of the planet exposed to the star’s energy. This species has the
appearance of a simple red weed and following great climate changes the
existence of this largest species on the planet is believed to have come
to an end.
