    This sounds like a really cool setup for a sci-fi setting, I wonder why it's not more commonly-used.

    Okay, hear me out.
    Microbes hitchiking on space rocks deliberately tossed by old alien civilizations.
    I mean, we put some shiny golden plates detailing ourselves in the Voyager probes, who's to say aliens wouldn't try chucking some experimental chemical concotions in rock pods into space for alien reasons?

    Maybe we should be the old alien civilisation and throw some microbe-laced ice rocks at random planets in the hopes they seed

    It's possible that their most basic appearance could be somewhat similar to our own, if you are talking about intelligent aliens. The human body is incredibly good at what it's designed for and it goes hand-in-hand with technology.

    Non intelligent aliens can be anything, really.

    because people look at a microscopic organism or a droplet of water on another planet and say, 'ooooh wow, that's life dude!' but their blinders force them to deny the fact that a baby in the womb is a living organism, aka has life.

    humans treat humans like shit, whether they're in the womb or an elderly woman. i don't know why we have such blatant disregard for our own lives.
