Just patches of the picture? Knowledge is such a vast concept, I know it has me beat, but I have not given up getting the sketch of it all.
OK you might have gone for the picture, the final completed puzzle.
Check: How many pieces have been forced together? This is part of the problem if it fits on one or two sides and you put it in, but it was a stretch really.
Lesson 1:- The 'puzzle' can never be completed .... most Earth-like planets occurred some 2 billion years ago;- the intelligent life which evolved on these planets and their 'machine' offspring are still hunting a huge amount of those 'missing pieces'.
Moreover;- if the universe is an evolving entity, you'll never ever know the truth, because the 'goal post' is ever changing.

What makes it a little more fun is that we don't consider 'empty space' to be "nothing". It's something, empty space. "Nothing" is mostly theoretical, the space within a one-dimensional point (i.e., none).

Lession 2;- Most life in our universe is nothing like us, and "Earth-like" planets do not apply!
You made me feel like a kid reading a pop up book. I turned a page and one thing popped out "Lesson 1". I turned another page and there was "lesson 2". But the objects lacked substance.
I'd had gone back to bed, and as I was waking I was thinking "life is a reptile. Sometimes it is a line, the sometimes coiled flat and at other times coiled into a ball."
Now when I write this out, it is like the degrees of freedom or spacial concepts.
I think this "Science Study" is making my mind active. Weird!

So is it blinking, rotating, is it a like of wave?
