Yes. "Cogito ergo sum" pretty much nails it. Self awareness is the key.


Agreed. I have a point of view. And you have a separate point of view. Anything with a point of view, the ability to on some level understand that they are separate from the rest of the universe and other creatures with other points of view, exists. At the same time, they work within a huge framework of other thinking creatures to observe reality and define it as one thing from an infinite number of virtual or potential realities.

When I die, the universe will be wiped out, forwards and backwards in time and space forever, since I will no longer be around to observe it.

Self awareness = a living spirit. The little alive organic bits just make up the vessel to carry that spirit. I have no idea if each little living organic bit is self aware or not. But I am. And therefore, I am alive.
