But “should be as unsurprising as rocks rolling downhill.” What happens on planets with low gravitational forces. Or where did the oceans (that are required) come from?

"they" say that humans and computers create in the same manner~

let's keep putting our knowledge together
and gain wisdom along with knowledge

Always, Thank You, Carrie!
