In a previous post, I discussed why life in the universe should be incredibly common. The only problem is that it isn’t. Or at least, it doesn’t seem to be. So maybe we got something wrong?

Who is to say the Earth is typical? Or that life tends to appear on planets like Earth? Maybe we are a cosmic accident in an otherwise desolate and lifeless universe?
