There could be life on other planets in our solar system, on other planets in other solar systems that exist alongside us but within different density spectra.

Does the term "density spectra" have meaning, or am I reading your OP too literally?

mean it literally - just as we perceive within a sound spectrum and a light spectrum, so we perceive within a density spectrum.

I ask the question, because taken literally the idea that we would perceive within a density spectrum seems inane assuming that density is taken to mean mass per unit volume. You must mean something different than what I expect by the term.

I once heard that the human body contains only a teaspoon of actual matter (atoms). The movement of atoms create a larger volume than the individual elements provide.

You imagine a teaspoon full of atoms moving around to occupy your volume? But somehow, the composition of your hair, for example does not change?
