The meaning of all DNA based life…

Anonymous (@) 8 years, 9 months ago

It’s like this. We were all once a sperm, till we were shot out and hit a egg. Alright?

DNA is a message inside a sperm. The sperm is just a vehicle for DNA, as are our bodies. A vehicle… yea

What is DNA? Information. Information of what? Survival information (how to gather resources, consume energy, conserve energy, how to reproduce).

How do we survive? Not here, not on this planet. We, like the sperm in a testicle, are doomed if we remain where we are.

When life started out on Earth, is was simple. We are at the point where we can investigate neighboring planets. When a species becomes so advanced that it can travel from one planet to another planet where it can survive, that species becomes a success (success in that, the process can continue).

The purpose of life on Earth is to depart for the stars, and if we keep raping our resources, we will be a failure. It’s not about personal happiness or any of that, it’s about survival, so we can see the end state, the final form that life takes. We (as DNA based life) have seen countless forms and lived countless lives, it is important for our ancestors to be apart of that final form. What we must discover is that we are the alien that we are trying to contact. yea

That’s all.

@ballsackturtles23, I completely agree man, We are at a pivotal moment in our development as a species where we can either stay on this planet and die or we can start building colonies on the moon and mars thus greatly increasing our species chances of survival. I say greatly increasing because we would still be in dangerous waters but we would at least have multiple boats instead our one boat that is slowly breaking apart.

It really seems simple to me, if we all stop fighting over petty problems and learned to work together the outcome would be astounding. There is so much money spent on the military, instead it could used to fund advances in science so we can develop the technology to survive off of our planet.

Exactly, why blow each other up when we can go somewhere else, with new possibilities.

@ballsackturtles23, I think it’s up to us the people of high existence and other like minded individuals that are aware of the real problems to speak up. We have the internet which is, in my opinion, the greatest resource of the average citizen. We can access immense amounts of information and connect with anybody on the planet no matter where they are, but instead it is wasted on adding random people of social media sites so they can like your trivial little picture. Our society puts to much value on things that don’t matter, while we worry about the future on a personal level.

Changing the world looks like a huge task but all it takes is a few people to spread an idea to a few other people. Then those people would spread the idea to more people and so on, eventually the idea would be growing exponentially and would spread across the planet.

You have a good point and I see where you’re going with that. But not to be a pessimist, but I don’t think that any life really has a purpose. Life is just a result of a mixing of chemicals in the “primordial soup” of the oceans that eventually evolved into what we are today. We don’t have a reason. And we, like the other millions and millions of species that have lived and died on this planet during its existence, should go extinct when it is our time. We shouldn’t be allowed to have another planet after we’ve trashed and abused this one. Earth used to be beautiful and wild until we showed up and ruined it. Why should we be allowed to wreck another beautiful and unique piece of this universe just because of our petty wants? We are so insignificant in this universe. And compared to other life forms in the universe that are most likely exponentially more intelligent and probably not as inherently evil, destructive, and ignorant as humans can be, we have no chance to make a difference or benefit the universe and we are therefore useless.

@ballsackturtles23,

I love it. Shame that I am selfish. I am the God of my own life, and so my dreams and my happiness and the happiness of the people most important to me take precedent over the goal of our DNA based existence.

What you have said makes a lot of sense. Evolution is our progress, and we are not one form, we are the sum of all the forms we have existed as and we are far from our final form. But regardless, as a sentient individual with free will I do as I choose.

“What is DNA? Information. Information of what? Survival information (how to gather resources, consume energy, conserve energy, how to reproduce).”

This isn’t exactly true. DNA is more of a blueprint for human structure. Each bit of DNA is coded to create a specific protein which all together make up a body. Survival and behavior are then offshoots of this physical being.

@dom9992, We are clearly headed toward something. From physics to inorganic chemitry to organic chemistry to biology to machines. Something is happening.

I wouldn’t say there isn’t a purpose so much as talking monkeys can’t understand the purpose.
