    Perhaps not the result expected:

    The Solar System is special, because the concept of leaving reality predicated on advanced technology being dismantled by inclusion logic leaves the Solar System to being the special.

    It's hard to know how many star systems like ours are similar to us because our star is so dim. If there were other Sol-like stars nearby, we probably wouldn't be able to see them because their light would be drowned out by the larger and brighter stars around them.

    I have heard that the systems that we have found so far have much larger planets, and that our Earth is small by extraordinary chance because in the earliest stages Jupiter closed with the inner planets and robbed them of matter, before retreating back out again.
    This left a much reduced Earth with lower gravity.

    In any event, the solar system is special.... Most special..... To us. It's our home, we just have to recognise how special it is and start being better house keepers to our home.
