Technology is intimately linked to life and what happens beyond it, considering that biology is a type of 'technology' developed by the universe.
Technology seems important to all levels in the hierarchy of conscious reality; individuals use tools to gain knowledge, collectives use individuals
as tools (like the synapses of a brain) to accumulate knowledge, the universe itself might use collectives as tools to gain yet more information, and
possibly the universe might serve as a learning tool on behalf of the multiverse.
Viewing reality in this fashion, we are all tiny data packets that are processed locally and then returned to the universal server supposedly with a
computational result – in other words, like distributed computing or even grid computing. We ourselves are the technology of the universe.
As for what happens after our 'result' is returned to the 'God-server,' matter and energy brought together briefly in one reality still exist in
some form beyond that reality, and they will eventually take on infinite forms.
A simple example of the above statement would be: dip a bucket into a river and fill it with river water. The water once from the river now fills a
vessel and takes on new shape, but it's still river water. Pour it back in the river and it mixes back with the collective and disperses. Portions of
the same group of water molecules could then be gathered in yet another bucket downriver, thus taking on new shape and filling a new vessel.
A correlation could then be drawn that the universe is the river, the water is its conscious force, and our bodies are the buckets. The bucket is a
technology used by the universe to explore and learn.
