I think that there are things that connect on smaller and larger scales, much like lets say a region, state, country, etc for government and motion
of a sink draining, hurricane, orbit around a sun, spiral galaxy etc... I'm tired so please excuse me if this is not coming out right. I think that
there is a possibility and more likely a probablility that there are many many intelligences out there and that a form of understanding and rules
apply between such existing lifeforms so that they may live and continue existing for whatever purpose they feel they exist for.
For example, one theory in physics is that the universe will keep expanding until energy is not usable and everything and every lifeform will die of a
great 'freeze' or the universe will collapse into itself in 'fire' depending on the strength of the field of gravity.
This got me to thinking that if lifeforms did get advanced enough to understand this, they would eventually know that the greatest challenge in the
universe would be to survive the death of the universe.
With each lifeform out there whether is be somehting like a collective conscience or hive mind mentality, individual thought, or whatever types...
they may understand that in order to survive it simply comes down to mathematics and chances... the more minds at work from different paths, the
greater the chance to figure out how to survive the inevitable deeath of the universe...
Let me go on kind of a rant here...
what have we seen in the past 10, 20, and 100 years?
Music is a great example because it started with paper, records, 8 track, tapes, cds, now we have mp3, dvd, discovered that information can be stored
into water... think of how much water the human body is made of... and storage of information into atoms... give humanity 1,000 years exponential
advances... now think of the age of the universe, approximately 13.7 billion years? Now imagine all those tiny dots in the sky and if even ONE had a
race one BILLION years ahead of our knowledge...
Would it not be impossible to store the information of every event in our history and evolution from a one celled creature, to present day, in a bunch
of tiny molecules? We would have to somehow manage to acquire the proper equation to get the particles into the next universe.
OK, as tired as I am and as far fetched (or not) as I got there, I guess what I'm trying to say is that these are some reasons why I believe a
federation would exist. Because we can think of it and we have only had a short time here, there are many possibilities that others have done the
same and had a longer time to think of it.
