It may well be that humans are becoming more complex, so too are viruses and bacteria and plant life and animal species and our atmosphere - its a compounding experience. What cannot be denied is that all of it, is in, surrounded by, and made up with 95% of matter and energy whose contents, compounds, elements, experiences and capacities are not known.
My point is merely that one cannot presume to speak to and for the universe as a whole when one is blindly ignoring the 95% of it. I'd go further the human ignorance-arrogance dance also discredits the natural intelligence in all matter and energy because of this. It's an incredibly ingrained bias that has become dogma that has become bigotry.
The universe was here and working just perfectly in eternally evolving equilibrium (of creation & destruction) before humans evolved in the physical - and yet we think we are the be all and end all of its creation and intelligence (I soooo need that pppfffttt!! smiley here ) It will still be in eternally evolving equilibrium when/if humans in physical form are no longer a part of the physical matter of it. What is 95% of everything - us included and every cell that makes us up is eternal and unchanging. When you put a suit on it does not change what is underneath, only the 'appearance' of it.
It's not just a matter of physics, it's also a matter of mathematics (5% + 95% = 100%), and of history and cosmology and yes chemistry, but outside of the defined and labelled it is also a matter of logic, and of honesty, and of grace - and I mean grace in the sense of humility and acceptance of the value of all, not diminishing others in order to rise above who we really are and what our place is in the greater equilibrium.
That is unsupported in history and science Ash - the more and more organised and ordered we become the more and more that the universe adjusts to suit - to maintain equilibrium.The more & more organised and ordered we become the less chance that a high entropy wave can kill us off.
What appears out of balance and favouring one state or another in a mythical time-space separation in its own way is already moving towards rebalancing.
From the moment that we are born we are journeying to our deaths. Some see this as a 'problem', others see it as an opportunity to interact with other 'forms' in experience.
That's pretty funny Ash, are you saying that's what you think the 95% is?God will always live in the gaps of understanding!!!
I guess one could say Equilibrium is eternal even in ignorance of it
