By using information from our past, we can extrapolate crucial information about the future. In a sense, that's the whole purpose of Science, that's
how it evolves. And although alot of scientists are motivated to find evidences that God doesn't exists, I've stumbled upon a theory that gives
evidence of the opposite... and to be honest, I myself must admit that I have been shaken, no - blown away by the elegance and simplicity of it.
The Omega Point Theory
Unlike popular belief people had in some other thread, the concept of an Omega Point was actually created by Teilhard de Chardin, in the 1800s. So the
concept isn't new. He theorised that because of Evolution, some life forms are bound to ultimately evolve and become extremely advanced, ultimately
achieving a god-like existence (what we'd call a Type V on the Kardashev Scale) in the extremely far future. This existence becomes so advanced, it
can literally form a force to counter the chaotic nature of matter, all across Space and acting perhaps even across Time; and saving the Universe from
death by making it orderly once again.
Teilhard's proposal was so controversial for his time, his work was declared heresy by most major religious organisations, including the Vatican.
However his idea applies very modern principles such as Convergent Evolution. His idea rings true to me, especially since his thoughts are very
similar to some of my own:
"Given enough energy and enough time, a life form will evolve to control all of its environment.
(so-called "First Law of Divinity")
If the environment is the Universe, and its energy content near infinite, and the Time available is unlimited (in the light of recent findings), then
some life form inside of it is bound to eventually evolve to control the entire universe, even if it takes billions or even trillions of years.
Frank J. Tipler simply modernised Teilhard's work, making it into an Omega Point Theory, adding a concept called "singularity".
The Omega Point is a term used by Tipler to designate the final cosmological singularity, which he contends is a physically-necessary cosmological
state in the far future of the universe. According to his Omega Point Theory, as the universe comes to an end at this singularity in a particular form
of the Big Crunch, the computational capacity of the universe (in terms of both its processor speed and memory storage) increases unlimitedly with a
hyperbolic growth rate as the radius of the universe goes to zero, allowing an infinite number of bits to be processed and stored before the end of
spacetime. Via this supertask, a simulation run on this universal computer can thereby continue forever in its own terms (i.e., in "experiential
time"), even though the universe lasts only a finite amount of proper time.
In other words, Tipler adds that at the singularity, the entire universe would work like a gigantic processing chip, and whichever super-advanced life
form controlling it will be able to delay their death forever by running a new, virtual universe with its own virtual time. This bears resemblance to
God and his Heaven. The concept is somewhat similar to General Relativity's time dilation, in which Time may stretch itself and seem like seconds for
an outside observer but stretch to eons for an inside observer.
Tipler notes that even if life never evolves into a god-like superpower in our universe, it may nevertheless do so in some of all the alternate
realities as proposed by Multiverse Theory (a solution, in Physics, to Schrödinger's Cat). From this one point, the being(s), which will then be
capable of manipulating entire universes, will influence the Multiverses Continuum with its (theirs) actions. Tipler's argument is, strangely enough,
supported by my own multiverse theory, which proposes that all multiverses share one dimension with each others - Time. If both Tipler and I are
right, then our universe is bound to get attracted by an Omega Point, and our universe's future is bound to merge with it.
My only criticism of Tipler's version is that the Universe is on a trajectory of Thermal Death, not of a Big Crunch. However my own criticism gives
evidences to support the original Omega Point idea, since Thermal Death means that the Universe has even more time available, and thus the chances
that some life evolve into an Omega Point are raised by several orders of magnitude. Also, Tipler himself points out that it's possible the
super-advanced life form, once it achieves its overwhelming power, will tigger an artificial Big Crunch itself. In fact, he points out that
artificially collapsing one dimension would allow for instantaneous information exchange, which would allow the Omega Point to perform faster
Pretty much everyone here knows that I am not christian. However my intuition tells me that the Omega Point concept is the nearest brush to Truth we
humans have. I am the author of pretty deep science stuff, but the more I've progressed in science, the more I was rushing to nowhere. The Omega
Point idea is the first ever to match many of my own conclusions. I can actually see it - the bigger picture, starting to form before my mind. It's
so simple - survival no matter the cost, survival from the Universe's Death itself is the ultimate threat we (as biospheres) will ever face. From
this ultimate point in the future, everything in the present is evolving and converging. Life has so much time to do so, all over the Universe - and
we already know that Life, although slow to start, grows to evolve rather... exponentially.
Is our future an Universe forever kept alive by a form of life so advanced, it is indistinguishable from God and his Heaven? Or are all attempts to
reach such a high level of evolution doomed to fail? And if the former is more likely, then are these super-advanced life forms acting upon our
present Universe and its content so to encourage the formation of the Omega Point in our future - in other words, ensuring the survival of the
