Sohow do you guys feel about the discovery of those 1.6 to 0.8 billion year old Protosterol biota?

So…how do you guys feel about the discovery of those 1.6 to 0.8 billion year old Protosterol biota?
Their membranes consisted of sterols instead of lipids, but these sterols were ancestral to all the other sterols we know like Cholesterol.
They were predatory, feeding on anything they could find such as bacteria, eukaryotes, or their own kind. They dominated the ecosystem, and were some of the first predators on Earth. They could still be living at the bottom of the ocean, waiting to be discovered.
They could be the link between a mysterious gap in evolution.
Personally, the discovery of these things shocked me to my core. The taxonomy behind the very evolution of life on earth is both intriguing and terrifying. There were extremely primitive metazoan eukaryotes 2.1 billion years ago, and now these strange cells made of sterols instead of lipids. I am shocked, baffled, and confused.

    We should try to clone or reanimate them and reintroduce them into the environment, just to see what happens.

    First I'm hearing about it but it sounds pretty cool.

    Came here from Our World Of Text, discovery looks interesting but unfortunately I'm not that smart to comprehend these words.

      TL;DR whole new type of life got discovered recently and it lived 1.6-0.8 billion years ago, it was one of earth’s first predators and could be a link in a mysterious gap of evolution

        and there’s shit like Parakaryon that has both traits of bacteria and eukaryotes, still hasn’t been solved and none of us have a clue as to what the hell it is

          There’s phosphine on Venus, which could be evidence for life.
          Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto all have an internal ocean, which could harbor primitive life.
          Titan also has an internal water ocean, and methane lakes and clouds/rain on the surface. It could harbor two different types of life.

            what if a bunch of early cells, including Bacteria, Eukaryotes, and Archaea, diverged from extremely primitive cells, and the three domains currently living today, including the Protosterol biota, just outcompeted the other primitive cells.
            The protosterol biota were also a victim of this, as they eventually got outcompeted by the three domains.

              so basically LUCA (last universal common ancestor) outcompeted some other primitive cell types cause they had a bunch of advantages

              Considering this is basically how it has worked at every other milestone in evolution this is now the theory I believe.
