What exactly is Galactus?

His origin is so weird sometimes he is described as the embodiment of the previous universe and other times he seems just like a living creature albeit highly evolved, so what exactly is he.

Galacuts is all of the following:

-An alien entity that survives by feeding on planets. This is how many beings and people understand him.

-The third force of the universe that balances Eternity and Death with his alien presence. This was established years ago in the Silver Surfer.

-an abstract, physical abstract or semi-abstract being due to how he was created. Many fans refer to him as one of these.

-Galactus is Galactus. A unique being in the cosmos unlike any other. Whereas the In-betweener is the crossroads of all dualities Galactus is the absence of all dualities being solely Galactus. This was suggessted during his battle with the In-betweener.

Galactus is the combination of mortality and immortality.

He is the fusion of the previous universe's equivalent to Eternity and a mortal from said universe that gestated in this universe for a millennium before emerging from his cocoon as Galactus proper.

Galactus functions as the embodiement of "destruction", balancing out Eternity (Life) and Death.

Without his solar suit sub staining him Galactus would turn into a sun
