Galaxies Fit One Definition of Macroscopic Life

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

Galaxies Fit One Definition of Macroscopic Life

Halton Arp proposed that galaxies (me: adults) eject pairs of quasars (me: spawning/reproduction), presumably bare plasmoids, and these quasars evolve into new galaxies. This seems to me to fit the definition of a living system. Quasars collect plasma (me: feeding), and assemble the mass they need (me: organization) to become small galaxies (me: young). These galaxies then grow and begin the process over again. Old "dead" galaxies presumably have their materials recycled back into mix. I think self-organizing systems that feed and reproduce themselves are one definition of life.
Unless you ask, the answer is always "No".
