Dust life
Dust and plasma-based

In 2007, V. N. Tsytovich and colleagues proposed that lifelike behaviors could be exhibited by dust particles suspended in a plasma, under conditions that might exist in space.Computer models showed that[1], when the dust became charged, the particles could self-organize into microscopic helical structures capable of replicating themselves, interacting with other neighboring structures, and evolving into more stable forms.[2] Similar forms of life were described in Fred Hoyle's classic novel The Black Cloud[3]

I also based the Life form Dusty and the Whsipering Nebula on Tsytovich idea.
