often i want to create worlds that work differently than earth
for example, a world with no tectonic plates, or one with lower gravity, or another with the affects of a blackhole yoinking at it.
but, i’m not smart enough to easily take in every single factor to do it, and i don’t want to study every miniscule amount of physics to create these fictional alien worlds
i want to imagine how alien life would evolve and thrive on worlds unlike our own, but there’s SO MANY FACTORS into how we came to be and how we survive, that i’d want it to be super fucking realistic and as scientifically accurate as possible. down to a single grain of sand lodged in a layer of rock millions of years back!
like how our oceans keep the planet warm, right? less oceans = less heat? or how the amazon is partially fertilized from the sahara i believe? things that the average person doesn’t think about typically, when it comes to survival on the planet.
