Interesting factoid?

If you could heat the head of a pin to the same temperature as the core of the sun (15000 Kelvin) it would kill everyone within 1000 miles.

The pin would vaporize well before such a temperature can be reached.   The strangest metals will vaporize  under 3000 deg C.  The Sun surface temp.  is  5800 deg C (approx).

Well I knowwww that I did quantify the theoretical with “IF”

Ok well how about if we could theoretically heat a pin head sized material as yet to be discovered(possibly constructed from grandma’s balls) that could withstand 15000 Kelvin...

If aliens have electro emissions like our TV would we detect them at our level of scientific sophistication? If aliens are also derived from their “primordial soup” on their home planets and have DNA what fictional race would they resemble? Humans or the Vulcans or something else? So far, only primates have reached our exalted level of brainpower on earth, so could any other species unlike us become as smart as us? Without more data can we ever know? We have gone almost 70 years without a world wide war. Can we go a hundred years? 200 years? Is human evolution continuing upwards?  

Maybe.

Maybe.

All we have is speculation.  We have not yet completely understood life on our own planet where we can know the physical conditions that affect life and how it can evolve.  Life can be extremely varied, yet all life is governed by the laws of physics.  So while living beings can be many things in many forms,  they cannot be any old thing. The following book addresses the questions you raised very well:  "The Equations of Life: How physics shapes evolution"  by Charles  S. Corkell.   This book is not for specialist  but it is not an easy read either.  If you read it prepare to wear your thinking cap.

most likely there'd be many species on another planet.  i'll go into the religion first: homo sapiens didn't get here alone, homo sapiens are only the fountainhead of achievement.

if a creature can move & has sense it has free will.

they would have different senses than us based on what forces dominate in their neighborhood (if they don't have light but instead electroweak radiation chemical atmosphere they will see that & be immune to it)

but meeting this earth would be much less likely.  probably in a galaxy governed by em & gravity primarily we'd meet creatures who physics would not affect us much but we'd have to be EXTREMELY careful of their biology.  they would have cells & bacterium infinitely different than our's.  so it would be ok to send them a broadcast but not ok for either of us to meet
