today in overthinking star wars—in the galaxy far far away, how did evolution happen?
Where did sentient life start? Single origin seems unlikely given the diversity of species, so…multiple planets? Which ones? What regions? And unless life started independently on every planet (which, tbh, seems unlikely, since there’s a limited number of sentient species) who emigrated/colonized what from where?
I mean, even if we just restrict it to humans, all the human have to come from some kind of single ancestral gene pool, which means there’s one world humans are native species and then literally all the other worlds where they’re not. So…where did they come from? Or is it so far back in the murky past that no one remembers a time when humans weren’t reproducing like mayflies and setting themselves up as the rulers of uninhabited moons.
is…this one of the things space academics fight over during their conferences
