Sorry I made a new post, I meant to reply to the one under this. :-)
Yea, I guess that makes sense. Planets don't really have much interaction. It does evolve and change, but more do to outside things acting on it. I guess it falls into the "other" category, non-consciousness (word?). So is the sole point of things that aren't conscious just to be used as scenery and stage props for us, or is there more to it?
I don't think if I was a planet it would help me learn very much, spinning around in circles constantly and whatnot.
