Alien life could be gas

Fascinating thoughts from here.

"These complex, self-organised plasma structures exhibit all the necessary properties to qualify them as candidates for inorganic living matter," says Prof Tsytovich, "they are autonomous, they reproduce and they evolve". The team says that future searches for extraterrestrials should take this work into account.

Now there just has to be a joke in there about the amount of gas some people produce and the origin of life, but I just can't find it.
