Nice.....but where did nature begin? I suppose it depends on your definition.
Was it there when the planet cooled and became the earth? Was it there at the big bang? Did it instigate the big bang? Is nature the cosmological
Hey, thanks for inclusion
even it was as the last footnote/mention in your response to the reply-ers...
yes, it does boil down to what 'Nature' means in one's definition/interpetation.
?Was it when the planet cooled and became earth?
YES, but the 'nature' of solar system & planet building is called something else.
YES, yours/mine concept of 'nature' is tied to our bio-sphere & environment,
but 'nature' (i.e. the laws & rules of the material universe) are on all levels.
?Was it (nature) there at the big bang?
YES, but we think of that expression of 'nature' as cosmological Physics
Did it (nature) instigate the big bang?
YES, but thru all the bells-&-whistles,and embellishments we made to religion..
we have decided that a force we call G-D was the initiator/creator
?Is 'nature' the cosmological consciousness?
WELL, nature produced consciousness intentionally or accidently, but nature itself is not consciousness it only created the environment for
consciousness to blossom, we humans, foremost, have an almost monopoly on cosmological consciousness...only because humanity has persisted for a long
time...not because humanity is right or special or blessed...
keep in mind, because humanity is able to challenge 'nature' on several different levels with technology...there is an inevitable collision course
in the future.
