comment Is there life on other planets and if so how frequent?
Poshpaws, good answer. As I understand we can only "look" into the past, since cosmologically speaking light is really slow. Light also disperses and becomes incoherent with long distances. "Simple" cellular life seems to be an evolutionary prerequisite, and they are not in the habit of sending out powerful radiotransmissions into space (i.e. weak-point of the SETI Proj.). There is also no reason why life should have terraformed a planet to the point of being spectroscopically detectable in the albedo. A lower bound on the number of habitable planets in a galaxy like ours, would be great.

comment What does orbital mean in orbital frontal cortex?
This belongs to Stack's English section. But surely you know the term orb. As a wild guess, judging from the 'al' in front'al', or later/lateral, I would say the postfix 'al' indicates position-relatedness.

@hello_there_andy I think the concept of homeotic genes / Hox genes will fascinate you as much as learning about Symmetry in EvoDevo.
