How do you know other life forms feel pain?

We are unique in that we are the only creatures which willfully sin and are redeemed.

A garden of Eden existence may not be an unpleasant experience for God or a created being.

The universe is not random, but planned.
There are as many different “life forms” as God cares to imagine.
Everything in Gods creation has a purpose.
God’s imagination is not so limited that other created beings must be like we are.
I can imagine that Black holes are life forms.
And my imagination is nothing when compared to Gods imagination.

Beyond that there is an appointed time when the universe is to be changed.
The present universe is constrained by time and therefore has a beginning and an end.
There will be no more sin and no more pain in the next universe... anywhere in the next universe.

Unfortunately that means no more chances for us.
Fortunately it also means rest for God.
God will not be in pain forever, because He will not allow us to sin and hurt ourselves and each other any longer then is necessary.
As soon as His purpose for our temporary universe is completed freedom to hurt will be removed with our consent or without it.
