[quote author=“HolyAvenger”]Entity, if you are willing to acknowledge that you are assigning this purpose to the universe and humanity out of your own volition, because you subjectively believe this purpose to be worthwhile, then fine, that’s all well and good.
I will admit that I used my power of reason through the deduction of events from what I have experience as I exist on earth.
[quote author=“HolyAvenger”]BUT, if you think that the universe has the purpose of being understood by humans objectively, then I think that’s where you’ve gone wrong. Why should the universe care if we know it exists or not?
The universe does not care if we know it exists and I have never said that it needs just humans to acknowledge I believe it is any knowing live entity and human’s are one of a number possible scenarios.
[quote author=“HolyAvenger”]Why would the universe even need a purpose in the first place?
I am simply stating that if the universe went unknown throughout it’s life cycle it would have no reference of it existing. In other words if it is not known why and who would care and it would be as if it never existed in the first place. The knowing living entity is a natural event within the universe’s process of being and it is a knowing living entity that brings the universe into the realm of the known.
[quote author=“HolyAvenger”] And who says we even know anything significant about it, simply because we have observed a bunch of vacuous space and gave it the name “universe”... For all we know, ours may be part of a gigantic, dynamic multi-verse.
All we really need to know is that it exist our motivation to understand the eternal dynamics of the universe allows humanity to better communicate to other knowing living entities throughout the realm of being. I have said before that it may well be necessary to locate living knowing entities in other “verses”
[quote author=“HolyAvenger”]If you acknowledge the validity of evolution, then that also diminishes your appeal that humans have some special role - after all, we’re just apes with a highly developed neocortex and natural selection made us that way, not the universe’s wish to be known and recognized. More intelligent life may have already developed in millions of other places in the universe as well, so to claim that we are its pet project seems a bit unwise to me.
I am not arguing one way or another how we arrive at where we find ourselves today or that we are the only ones that are aware of the universe but until we find out that other knowing living beings that can either communicate their awareness to us or we can do communicate our awareness the them we should assume we are the only ones.
