Not OP here. And no, i don't particularly believe the universe is a brain cell. BUT, there is no reason our universe couldn't be. As we look further and further inwards we only find that the universe grows deeper and deeper inwards, beyond what we thought possible or probable. There is no reason to believe that as we look further and further outwards, and the universe seems to infinity (metaphorically speaking) be expanding the further we look, that our universe couldn't be part of some much larger, greater organism.
Perhaps the universe itself, is an organism? I'm sure from the perspective of a single cell, molecule, atom or quark in the human body other human bodies must seem like a wild idea just as other universes do to us. Let alone an entire world beyond it's universe of the human body and an entire universe beyond the world.
>>7773399 Although I think your idea is kinda cool and when I'm feeling really poetic about the universe I believe the same, the fact is we don't have no proof of what you're saying being true. I guess mythology began the same way, a stoned guy making up stories to explain what he couldn't understand (and wouldn't live enough to see it explained scientifically).
>>7773289 But nature is just the product of chemical reactions under very rare and special events, especially here on earth... It follows kinda its own rules and assuming that fractals exist on such big patterns and on such unlikely connections implies that there is a field of awareness that transcends all realities. A guided process.
>>7774982 In the flowing channels, matter and energy move faster than elsewhere. This can be used to communicate information. Historically, human societies that settled along rivers took advantage of this to spread news.
>>7775018 >driving in london i hope you're not implying that there is any sort of rhyme or reason to londons city layout i once sent a canadian friend to poundland to grab some doritos and he didn't make it back until 3 days later
>>7775021 and many others. It's a shape that occurs naturally in a variety of ways and has inherent utilities, but it doesn't really imply anything else. It's very appealing to see it in the cosmos and wonder if the whole universe is conscious but less appealing to wonder if freeways or spiderwebs are.
>>7773281 i have a very basic understanding of the human brain but i do know it is impulses of energy being sent from point a to point b and could the universe not do the same with some form of energy we dont know? i have no basis fo r my next statement but it is just a thought. what if the reason our universe is expanding at an increasing rate is because it is learning from the life that was created buy pure luck through the slow process of evolution. this could explain why the rate isnt decreasing as it naturally would because organisms are more than the sum of their parts metaphorically speaking
>>7773289 What makes anyone so sure that on a large scale all of the interactions that goes onto the universe doesn't add up to some kind of global consciousness? Especially if you think a complex system eventually develops consciousness.
