Физика как проявление суперпродвинутой формы жизни

After all, if the cosmos holds other life, and if some of that life has evolved beyond our own waypoints of complexity and technology, we should be considering some very extreme possibilities. Today’s futurists and believers in a machine “singularity” predict that life and its technological baggage might end up so beyond our ken that we wouldn’t even realize we were staring at it. That’s quite a claim, yet it would neatly explain why we have yet to see advanced intelligence in the cosmos around us, despite the sheer number of planets it could have arisen on—the so-called Fermi Paradox.
For example, if machines continue to grow exponentially in speed and sophistication, they will one day be able to decode the staggering complexity of the living world, from its atoms and molecules all the way up to entire planetary biomes. Presumably life doesn’t have to be made of atoms and molecules, but could be assembled from any set of building blocks with the requisite complexity. If so, a civilization could then transcribe itself and its entire physical realm into new forms. Indeed, perhaps our universe is one of the new forms into which some other civilization transcribed its world.

A species can mitigate risk by spreading, decentralizing, and seeding as much real estate as possible. In this context, hyper-advanced life is going to look for ways to get rid of physical locality and to maximize redundancy and flexibility. The quantum realm offers good options. The cosmos is already packed with electromagnetic energy. Today, at any instant, about 400 photons of cosmic microwave radiation are streaming through any cubic centimeter of free space. They collectively have less energy than ordinary particles such as protons and electrons, but vastly outnumber them. That’s a lot of potential data carriers. Furthermore, we could imagine that these photons are cleverly quantum-mechanically entangled to help with error control.
By storing its essential data in photons, life could give itself a distributed backup system. And it could go further, manipulating new photons emitted by stars to dictate how they interact with matter. Fronts of electromagnetic radiation could be reaching across the cosmos to set in motion chains of interstellar or planetary chemistry with exquisite timing, exploiting wave interference and excitation energies in atoms and molecules. The science-fiction writer Stanisław Lem put forward a similar idea, involving neutrinos rather than photons, in the novel His Master’s Voice.
That’s one way that life could disappear into ordinary physics. But even these ideas skirt the most disquieting extrapolations.
Toward the end of Carl Sagan’s 1985 science-fiction novel Contact, the protagonist follows the suggestion of an extraterrestrial to study transcendental numbers. After computing to 1020 places, she finds a clearly artificial message embedded in the digits of this fundamental number. In other words, part of the fabric of the universe is a product of intelligence or is perhaps even life itself.
It’s a great mind-bending twist for a book. Perhaps hyper-advanced life isn’t just external. Perhaps it’s already all around. It is embedded in what we perceive to be physics itself, from the root behavior of particles and fields to the phenomena of complexity and emergence.
In other words, life might not just be in the equations. It might be the equations.


То есть, чрезвычайно продвинутая жизнь будет просто частью нашего космоса, всепроникающей, всемогущей и всезнающей. Частью физических констант и уравнений, которые она сама и создала. А вот от этой мысли до понятия "Творца" совсем близко.

И вот хочу добавить:
Все вышесказанное укладывается в Христианство. Предположим некая сверхцивилизация достигла уровня трансенденции. В таком случае она слилась воедино, по сути дела она — единое существо во множественности (Троица, опять же). Затем она создала свой собственный космос, где стала частью его — вот тебе и акт творения и всемогущество, и всезнание и при этом свобода воли у созданий, а Бог — везде и во всем, как Иисус и сказал. Создание человека по образу и подобию своему — ДО трансенденции — вполне логичен. До перехода в состояние единства сверхцивилизации, создатель был (были) человеком. И да, в НАШЕЙ вселенной Бог первичен и существовал до её создания. Наличие человеческих эмоций и взглядов у Бога тоже становится объяснимым. Единственное расхождение с каноном, что Бог сам эволюционировал в божественное вне нашей вселенной. Но обратное тоже нигде не утверждается, так что никакого обмана.
