  • So what is the difference between you and a rock? This seems like an easy, even stupid question. But even the smartest people on earth have no idea where to draw the line between living and dead things. Which leads to mind-blowing implications. What is life after all? And is death really a thing? Lets look into it together

        you are calling something dead when all the activity inside it is alive and it isnt completely stable, when you refering something as a particle which runs with natural laws of world then you call it matter not dead, help me with the difference what is matter and how is it different from life is. and the AI's are just as information as you said but neither matter nor life just information.. its true that information makes evolution but fundementaly we are matter first with a patter where the pattern is evolving but AI is just a charge 1 and 0, if you dont see this you are just a believer of science like other religions.. you have ended it beautifully with those questions and life is all about your own experience but do you think the title of the video is justifing.... " what is life?" daaaah. and last of all the laws of world to happen itself is soo beautiful you are denying it as nothing because some fools among spread ignorant statements and by denying it should make you more bright but you are still ignorant about the beauty of this world and how it is working.

                  Bilim adamları kör kör !!! Bu kadar harikulade sistemleri görüp de bunların ustasına yaratıcısına inanmamak ne körlük ve ne acınası bir durum geleceğiniz için endişelenin!!! Ne de olsa inananların Yaratıcısı onları istikbalin karanlık ve bilinmezliğinden kurtaracak sizi kim kurtaracak?! Virüsler mi yoksa mitokondri mi yoksa DNA mı yoksa tabiat mı? Üzgünüm ama bunların hepsi sadece asker Allahın askerleri siz onları canlılık verir diye ahmakane hükmediyorsunuz!

                                          Cogito ergo sum. Reality is predicated on universal physical law, so yes it is real. Yes death is real, however that does not necessitate an end to something but merely a transition to something else. What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the butterfly calls the beginning.

                                            The caterpillar is at the middle of it's life, and the butterfly at the end. After that, you get a dead butterfly.

Around 10 years ago started to realize, if basically everything in us is made from materials, that is not alive, how comes it is alive. Or more so, most of the "illusion that is alive" comes from movement. Things that move are alive to us, but then again, there are natural occurrences of movement in nature by chemical and physical reactions. So the real question is: How come these natural reactions became so extremely regulated and complex and are numbered in the billions in us? I hardly doubt that we came to be some sort of existence that is like a 1 to 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 chance or something. And no I don't believe in god. I am a believer, but not in god. God is a made-up thing for religion to control people. So then again, if we make a "robot" that is the same as us, but is from a different material (that is not living for example) does it mean we might as well be made of anything? Can we call it alive? Can we call us alive? I think the word itself is getting to old and needs to be redefined "life" or "alive" . Also, the problem is WE think that intelligent robots are intelligent because they act like us. So basically we think something is intelligent if it's human-like. That's the exact problem with Elon Musk: He thinks Ai is dangerous because it thinks like a human if we make it intelligent...but the truth is we dont need to make it like a human since its a tool. It just needs to be efficient to do what its purpose is...

Since everything is made up of atoms and they have electrons which spin around the nucleus, a force makes them spin. So, basically, it’s ‘alive’. When someone ‘dies’, the electrons in atoms that made up that person do not stop spinning. So, death is really a change of state for the atoms and molecules that made that person. Nothing ever dies. It’s an illusion like time and space. It’s like saying I took a glass of water from the ocean, so a new ‘glass of water’ is born and when I poured it back in the ocean, it can’t be identified again since it was just water, always. So by me pouring it back in ocean, did the ‘glass of water’ “die”? No, since It was never born. No birth and no death.

Por outro lado, querer criar inteligência (consciente) em computadores, isso sim seria fazer mágica.

Anything changing more faster then light we can't see we can't detect and no opposite reaction will take place. So that thing never existence for us and universe. Just like electricity is necessary to operate projector that make image aur movie for us same thing happens in universe something is responsible for reality or existence . You can call him god or creator and may be a computer operator who is run this reality simulation.

Of course energy can be and is manipulated for both beneficial and nefarious means, as we do it all the time ourselves. So entities on a higher dimension than us using manipulation of our energy to create a constant simulation(s) in our realm for some purpose cannot be ruled out. But we'd be living in a manipulation state more so than a simulation state. A different yet similar manipulation state the wordly PTB have us living in now, with the difference being that these entities may be doing it for our benefit to achieve cosmic balance and not solely just for taking advantages of us for their agenda, like our "leaders" do. However, regardless of what state of being we exist in, we have a conscience and sub-conscience, and SOUL is our ultimate form of consciousness. Our Soul-Conscious lives and persists ALWAYS from energy we possess, give out, receive, the reactive shared from said energy we receive or emanated from another something or someone, (etc...). Medical Scientists have even accounted for the time and weight of one's soul as it "passes on" after one's mortal/worldly death. Everything everywhere is energy. Simply put, all that we see, hear, and are is an energy of vibration, frequency and magnetism. A solid block wall to your silent thought is all energy. Life is manifestations of energy and interactions of said energy's. Death is a transfer of the total sum of those energy's gained in your life. Where our Soul-Conscious energy will go depends on the type of energy that said Soul-Conscious possesses. There's the energy of balance, which is pristine/godly, and which is the energy we battle ourselves with the most. What is not enough and how much is too much are limits we're constantly being tested with everyday. Then there's positive and negative energy. Tessla said "3-6-9 is life." Forms of energy which all contain vibration, frequency and magnetism, and their non-stop interactions. The best we can do is to try to maestro our own vibrations, frequencies, and magnetics as best as we can into a tune that aims for balance in our Soul-Conscious. All religions speak on this but the most practical compass to reach that unreachable balance as flawed human-beings is best stated in "The Golden Rule." Live life with that in mind, as that will aid in the direction of where your Soul-Consciousness' energy takes you after you shed your mortal flesh suite😊
