There are a ton of questions to be raised about how life on such a planet would work. Life on earth is driven by rhythms: a circadian rhythm, tidal rhythms, monthly rhythms, seasonal rhythms - it begs the question whether life is even possible without these built-in cycles.

My initial hunch is yes, and perhaps we can look for evidence of such in caves, deep ocean, and single-cellular life.
