Image: SNR 5.4-1.2 and PSR B1757-24, a.k.a. the "Duck Mosaic"; the process described in Apokalpsis may result in a planetary scale life form that would seek out the densest source of hydrogen near it and which might come to look like the "Duck". I do not say that the Duck is a planetary scale life form, seeking out hydrogen; nonetheless, the Duck Mosaic is a provocative image. The Universe is very large. Please see here for scholarship relating to the Duck.
