Life exists solely to process data. The Universe contains such a huge amount of data that requires processing and that is the purpose of life to
process that data.
Eventually human lifeforms will reach a point where they are capable of processing every piece of data in the Entire Universe.
Once we reach that point, if there are other Universes or other dimensions we will also go on to process every piece of data in those realms.
If there are infinite Universe or Infinite Dimensions then our quest to process data will never end.
"Always chasing that white mouse" as they say.
Wow what an immensely hard thing to grasp?
How did you come to this conclusion, is what i'd really like to ask?
Not to debate or whatever... just to research and things, it's pretty nice way of thought, and would like to see why you think this way.
I actually came to this conclusion the other night while having a great conversation with another board member Badmedia.
I realized that EVERYTHING we do is a simple Zero/One choice like a computer.
Every decision is based off of a simple 1/0 Yes/No decision.
EVERY life form processes data. From the simplest creatures to us the life forms on Earth with the most processing power.
I do not consider emotion to be spiritual but instead to be a chemical that can affect the 1/0 Yes/No decision making process of the Human Mind
When we are happy it is just chemicals being released. When we are Angry it is another chemical. The same with sadness or fear.
That is not to say I do not make every attempt to laugh in life. Lets face it when you laugh it is a GREAT drug being released. I want that drug and
not the sadness or anger drug.
I am really starting to see that humans cannot stand to not try and solve a puzzle. We are such puzzle solving creatures! Be it trying to figure out
how to "beat the system" and get a good deal on a purchase, or to get a really good haircut that others in our society will find stimulating, or
commit a crime and get away with it, or attempting to talk to that gorgeous human we see every day at the music store.
We process data. Data data data. We just do it on an enormous scale. Maybe millions of calculations every single day. Maybe billions or trillions!
When I get my mind fired up and start to think of all of the thoughts that combine to form even the SIMPLEST of thoughts it can get to be an ENORMOUS
figure. GIGANTIC amounts of processing for even the simplest action of scratching an itch.
