The other day a friend of mine asked me, "Why do all living things WANT to live... why do the mothers protect their young?"
My response was this. "The living organisms you see around you today are the results of billions of trial and errors. Trial and error circumstances
that range from something as minute as the bonding of chemicals to something as complicated as the birth process of a human baby. Somewhere along the
way there were traits that remained during this evolution of life. These traits were the building blocks of what we are composed of today. For
example, if a mother gives birth to two and one has a strong drive to survive while the other a weak drive, the one with the weak drive will be more
likely to die and fail to reproduce. That example can be applied all the way down to single cell organisms."
I continued, "Some might say that this places a trivial regard for life as we know it now, if you believe that all we are is the end result of such
random processes. But that's not the case at all. In fact I believe it is the opposite."
"Our definition of life," I said, "is rather primitive and accute. You think the blue prints for life is set in DNA or RNA? No, the true location
that all life patterns will follow is set in matter itself. You see, if you were to erradicate all life as you know it you would say that there is no
chance for life to reform. But, that's the beauty of the universe; there is a chance- and we are the proof."
"Within the boundaries of our universe lies a specific recipe for life. There is a reason why the same basic 3 chemical compunds that form us is the
same 3 that is most abundant in the universe. These atoms were formed by one dimensional strings vibrating at a specific frequency producing a perfect
song heard in the third dimension."
"This recipe also has a specific temperature. Our universe is going through a cooling stage. And once it reaches a certain point there will be not
enough heat to sustain life as we know it."
I told him that the point is life is all around us. Life is in the gasses of the sun, to the dirt in the ground. That is what life looks like when it
doesn't want to become a sentient being, but it is life all the same because it is capable of producing sentient beings from itself.
My friend asked me, "So if the sun is alive then why doesn't it have consciousness?"
"But it does!" I replied.
"Consciousness begins with atoms. It is the process of quantum zero point energy that forms consciousness. In an advanced brain such as ours
consciousness is formed through a series of waves. These waves consist of about 80 single moments of bursts of consciousness each second. In a chaotic
storm of energy, such as a star, there is no neural network and responsive muscles. This means the atoms of the star will never have a consciousness
that remotely rivals ours, but it is there."
"That's probably enough for the star however. Because the instant a photon leaves the star, it will land within the eye of a gazing human because
photons travel at the speed of light and therefore they do not eperience time. And in that moment all of the stars of heaven would have sent a photon
into the eyes of him. His brain would process the information giving consciousness of the entire universe that rides upon the single moment."
My friend looked up at the stars and smiled.
