WAUW I was just trippin over this the other day
. I was thinking about this whole searching for extra terrestial life form out there, and got to think about how the molecules work allmost the same way planets behave. While trippin over this i pondered if that, in it self wasn´t LIFE. As stated earlier by you guys, planets and molekules get born, live and die. So i was thinking maybe we are looking at it wrong, that we are searching the wrong places.

Funny, i just saw Waking life, where this couple is talking in bed about, how its funny that one scientist come to a conclution, and suddenly scientist all over the world get to the same conclution without talking, like we are all tapping in to the same consciousness. Freeky that i was just trippin over this the other day and this thread pops up, freaky but freaky in a good way.

And by the way yes, i think that the universe is a huge living being, and we are part of it.

That is good example too. Your two pics look almost identical. Of course both of our pictures of the universe are simulated, so we don't officially know what it really looks like, but it is interesting to play hypothetical game anyway.

How wild would that be if we were studying neurons with a more powerful electron microscope in the near future and discovered a whole universe inside?

Or, if we develop telescopes to look so far outside of our universe that we find out there is a whole bunch of other universes inter-connecting with ours. And if you think about how they say the big bang just kind of happened, I wonder would it looks like when a neuron is created inside the brain? Does the neuron just kind of spring out in all different ways similar to how we think our universe was created?

Hi, really great thread! I think about this kind of thing all the time. It really boggles the mind!

I usually wonder whether maybe I'm just a small part of a greater whole, and if maybe I am the greater whole for the smaller parts of me haha
. And then after that it just goes on and on and on and on etc. lol. Such a fascinating idea

Love the pics as well! I've seen the 'eye' pic before, but not the others so thanks for that!
Especially the 'hand' pic, pretty amazing!

S+F btw, I love this kind of stuff

I too, believe it or not, have had this idea of the universe being a living thing. God maybe?
With the new reports that the universe is moving like a river to a certain point, I thought this (the universe we see) could be a vain or something.
I also thought that maybe newborn stars are like electrical neurons going off when we move or do something.
It's fascinating that others have this idea of the universe being a living thing too.

Is the Universe Alive?
Yes, but HOW?

Let me take a slightly different view than most have offered to this point. The universe, as we are correctly finding out, is reactive. Many observers would say that is just the laws of physics taking over and in predictable ways.

In many cases I think that is true. Someone, however, has raised the specter of this being called Gaia. That term refers to something more than just the laws of physics being operative because it also helps explain the presence of other life that just plain vanilla physical laws would allow for.

May I suggest a better name for Gaia? Roll this over the tongue: She is better spoken to as being called the, “Supreme”.

One of the fascinating things about the concept of a Supreme is they have this remarkable ability to summarize how the universe is behaving and then reacting to it both in the physical and the spiritual - the world of values.

I don’t thinks she minds being called Gaia at all, but she would love to be heard explaining herself to anyone who can listen to the voice of the living universe as the voice of the Supreme to her universe children.

This feeling so many of us have is because there is truth behind it and it opens up a whole new world to learn once we can name is calling us.

Very thought provoking post.

For me this is one of those topics where you just keep thinking and thinking and send yourself into a spiral of possibilities.

This reminds me of the movie Men In Black, at the very end, they zoom out of the universe and its just a marble that an alien is playing with, among many other marbles.

We're going to have to reach the edge before we make that an absolute determination, but I think it is highly likely.

All time and space exist in the same space and time. One is the true nature of god. Quantum entanglement? How can that be real when every possibility, and every bit of information for every possibility exist in all time, and in all space? Science is madness. Science can only explain an individual set of possibility. God cannot be explained through the individual experience, he is one. Of course the universe is alive. What else would it be? If it contains life, then it is alive. Right? Do you consider yourself alive? Do you consider yourself apart of the universe? If your answer is yes, then the universe is alive. But i guess in order for it to be alive, something would have to counterbalance it by being dead. How would you actually define being alive? Are you comparing it to something dead? If you are comparing a living universe to a dead universe, what would be a dead universe? I may be crazy but what the hell!

P.S. - I think i have been hit in the head one to many times haha.

Just thought id ask, how do you know what or who you are without first knowing what i am? haha. we can have fun all day.

Sure, why not?

Here is a major problem we are dealing with.

What is "Life?"

It is funny because any definition you can give, there is a living thing that does not apply to that rule. Thus it is exceedingly difficult to pin down a good definition of "Life".

Check out the books by Carl Sagan.
"Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors:A Search for Who We Are"
and "The Dragons of Eden:Speculation on the Evolution of Human Intelligence"

He makes excellent points about why it is so hard to classify something as "alive".

So with this in consideration, the Universe might as well be alive.

The whole earth is a giant living organism. Since when did people just discover things exist that don't appear as we do. Why is it 'modern' scientific thought only discovers things the Bible has spelled out for centuries. (earth is round/diseases are spread by not washing hands/bad emotions can prolong illnesses etc) So much for modern knowledge.

its very possible and I already thought about that

the reality is that we dont have enough information on whats besides our universe, so we dont know anything, maybe we are a single cell into a big larger being, so who knows;

dude I love these kinds of posts. Exciting, fun to think about.

Awesome post.

Isn't James Lovelock the same guy that advocates ending democracy is the only way to save the planet?

Oh yeah, it is the same guy.

He has some very strange ideas, that's for sure.

Or the universe could be a cell in a really,really....really big Being? My luck we're an epithelial cell inide the retum.

Exactly what i was thinking

It would makes sense, everything is so crappy

but HOW some of these "sculptures" have perfect shapes of human body parts??

It's called matrixing. You are able to make faces out of anything really.

But interesting thread.

Yeah I’ve had this idea since grade 9 science, Planets are just Electrons spinning around its Atom nucleus. And we are a small insignificant (on the big scale) bacteria, or infection.

We measure everything depending on its relation and size to us. We don’t know how big things really get, or how small things really get, what the real scale is, or if everything Is TO big for us to ever see because we are too small.

Is there any evidence for such a concept?


Your problem, like many other posters on ATS, is that you start with a conclusion and look for 'evidence' to meet that preconception. In the OP you dismiss far more likely explanations as "BS".
