Thread Name: BS: I Love this Idea
Subject: RE: BS: I Love this Idea
And I love the idea of a conscious universe. Why not? I read somewhere that when humans evolved the universe woke up. What an amazing, imaginative notion. Well, we're not just in the universe, we are the universe, Maybe life has evolved billions of times. As intelligent life advances, maybe just here or maybe in billions of places, the universe becomes more and more conscious and becomes intelligent. I see a link with your neurons and synapses, but that could just be metaphorical. But I love it. It's how we should be thinking. The mind taking flight, leaving plenty of room for the real science too, of course. That's entirely possible in a way that is not possible with a Godly bolt-on, the antithesis of science, the antithesis of true imagination, the antithesis of the search for what's really true. I'd rather do wacky anyday. The nuttiness of the truly sane!
