"Does this organisation of matter/energy into life and consciousness simply arise as a natural counterpoint to entropy?"That really is the key thing isn't it? And that goes way beyond any nail on determinism into the realms of religion and philosophy. Whilst we have to be careful of anthropomorphic principle, the question is: does this organisation of matter/energy into life and consciousness simply arise as a natural counterpoint to entropy? Or is their an underlying reason for the struggle? Is their an end goal? Does life effect the processes we see? What of the observer paradox?
Some philosophies will cite nirvana or the ultimate dissolution of ego. An escape from the race and constant struggle always doomed to failure. An recursive cycles of reincarnation to evolve across lifetimes etc. But isn't the dissolution of ego into nirvana a kind of ultimate suicide? To step beyond nature into...
Yes. This is the Malthusian crisis that we currently face.
And I agree with everything else you posted too
Brilliant idea I think! And perhaps this is a great way to explain quantum entanglement. There is opposition to every interaction. However, then what about string theory? It turns out that energy is distributed in 3 or 4 dimensions, but not in 10 or 26, which is theoretically possible too?
Turns out that nirvana is the infinity which is followed by death.
One energy turns into another and so on ad infinitum. From this point of view, reincarnation can also be explained. Reincarnation is just an endless transition of matter from one kind to another. Therefore, when a person dies, if what he consists of continues to be used, for example, in the ecosystem, then this is reincarnation, and if for some reason a person falls apart into molecules, it is nirvana?
