It's typically regarded that life needs liquids of some kind to evolve.
But liquid is just a state where molecules can move around freely in order to interact with other molecules instead of being packed tightly in the solid state.
What if this "liquidity" was based on nano-particles of at least partially magnetic materials and strong oscillating/sloshing magnetic fields which causes the particles to move around and interact with each other?
I'm particularly interested in life in very cold places. It seems to me that these lifeforms would be quite a bit larger than liquid based ones.
Am I nuts? :)
