  1. Assuming that’s how life evolved on different planets. Scientists are too busy looking for exoplanets that exhibit the same characteristics as earth. Perhaps live beyond hasn’t evolved with oxygen but with other gases like helium. Who knows. Maybe our planet is the only one where life requires oxygen. Specific to our Galaxy.

  2. I do believe that life exists in the universe. As known, the universe is still in the redshift, and we have only explored the iceberg of it. Even if life does not exist on exoplanets like Kepler-186f, there might be other planets similar to Earth both in Components or in Structures enabling the possibility for life in the universe.
