The duet of physicists in the person of Luis Anchordoki and Eugene Chudnovsky from the city University of New York (USA) described the hypothetical form of life, the habitat for which is the red-hot body of a star. This life is based on cosmic strings (one -dimensional linear objects) and monopolis (particles with one magnetic pole). They could form when the quarter-gloss soup after a large explosion entered the stage of condensation and matter began to form in the universe.
The main postulate of scientists is that life in the universe has a variety of forms, and is not at all similar only to the earthly. Therefore, the criteria for its search is not the presence of water, carbon and certain temperatures on the exoplanet. Life is a certain form that carries information about itself and knows how to reproduce faster than a single individual dies. In the case of biological organisms, this is a combination of DNA and RNA molecules that ensure the mechanism of self -consultation, plus the ability of almost all living creatures on Earth to create several generations of descendants during the life of an individual.
The existence of cosmic strings and monopolists is not documented, but the mechanism of their existence inside the stars is well described. Each monopol has at least two strings with which it can connect to other monopols. Connections can be two- or three-dimensional, the designs over time become more and more difficult and at some stage are divided under their own weight, creating their own copy. This process requires energy costs, which draws directly from the star – that is why this strange form of life has chosen them for its habitat.
Since there is a lot of energy inside the star, such a life is rapidly developing, often mutating, evolving and may well find the mind. There was plenty of time for this, so it is impossible to even exclude the development of interstellar flights with the aim of finding a new feed base. The most interesting thing is that this theory is indirect confirmation – for example, stars like EPIC 249706694, which, for unknown reasons, fade much faster than expected. Is it because they are literally eaten by a strange star life?
