what we have difined about universe, is that present in multi forms in the space, secondly is there a possibility that the space gap is just filled of many systems throughout? or there are number of universes? or there is just a single universe and in which many solar systems are working? or there is only just "ours" solar system is live of which we are the part? and we are the alone in the universe in live form or say "live spacies" in the universe, and rest is almost dead?

or we are not sure about such question?

To my best understanding, all those questions can only be answered hypothetically. As for "are we alone", I like to think not. Carl Sagan once broke it down to an equation. It is in his book Cosmos. Here is the link to it as well. Interesting;

Actually Mr. Sagan was using the Drake equation, developed by Frank Drake in 1961.

To the OP, those are questions to which we all would like answers. Unfortunately, our current state of technology leaves such matters in the realm of mathematics and philosophy.

Suggested Reading:

Leonard Susking, Brian Greene, Stephen Hawkings and Carl Sagan. While they can not provide all of the answers, they certainly offer sound scientific foundations for many of the concepts that interest you.

Happy Reading!
