    If we are to assume existence is a structured system and life is a part of that system; then we as Earth must ask, are we a functional aspect of existence?

    G'day Schizo

    Are you two minds about this.


    ==================================

    We exist because of chance.

    I paid attention to our existence and this is the conclusion I came to.



    We are Human.


    If we stood on a precipice in sociological and cosmological terms; meaning that both our future as a society and as a part of the cosmos where to be defined by a fundamental question; this would be the question I would ask.


    We are Human after all.

    How do we fit within the system of existence?

    We're hardly got off the ground, so to speak.

    Long before we slumped up onto land, one could doubt our role in Earth's climate. Now we're very much a part of the equation.

    I guess we'll be big-banging in time, but "we" won't be doing that as humans.

    We can't attain understanding for necessary technology until we factor life in as if it's already attained. "Theory of Everything" that excludes us will be self-fulfilling. That's a gate all sentient life must confront before stepping forward in a big way, analogous to the man-made climate change realization that enables perfect understanding of climate. These gates are ethical filters.

    Lol, what an interesting thread title. But alas, I tried to understand the question, and ended up totally confused. We exist...because of the matrix?
