The Future of the Universe.
The universe is composed of objects. Each object has a morphology or shape. Recognition of persons or animals or plants or geography depends on their morphology. Without morphology, we and our domesticated animals would be severely disadvantaged to know with whom or where we were. Our memories of morphology permit living freely without voluminous record keeping and consultation.
The universe also would be difficult for daily living decisions if the objects were not originals. Mass produced objects would have the effect of hiding individual differences and would impede free living. A universe of objects unanimously original would be immensely difficult to create but enormously easy for free living. Fortunately our universe was designed to enhance free living because every object in it is an original. See http://originalitythroughouttheuniverse.com/press-release/
We may notice that much knowledge and many inventions have been imitated from nature. Astronomical observations have permitted discerning the chemistry of celestial objects. Spider webs have suggested imitated cables stronger than steel. It is as if the galaxies are there for our primary instruction and each object is a unique exhibit in an enormous museum. A case also could be made for the universe as an immense laboratory.
The universe is harmonious, not chaotic. It seems to have a purpose, a design. It seems to be a construction, not a collection of random objects thrown together. And the purpose seems to be to educate the viewer. It is as if whoever made this immense biosphere went to a great deal of trouble to make it understandable and to teach basic lessons. That every object is an original seems to teach that we must not expect anything in life to be like a mass produced item with no particular value to the whole.
That value of each part is suggested by the interdependence of all the pieces. Every blade of grass is an original that produces oxygen as it consumes carbon dioxide and is dependent upon the animal using it for food as that animal consumes the oxygen while producing carbon dioxide. The biosphere is like a huge organism living as each of its parts contributes to the others and as it prospers as a whole. There seem to be lessons in that the whole suffers if any of its parts are singled out and eliminated. The message seems to be not to alter it because alterations harm the whole. That includes the alteration of transplantation. All attempts to transplant have resulted in failure as have all attempts to nourish and to metabolize and to live outside the biosphere. As far as human science knows, all attempts to develop a biosphere elsewhere in the universe have failed. Even the feeble experiments designed to lead to a new or transplanted biosphere have failed. Every object in the universe is permanently a desert. In the entire universe, there is only one biosphere and it is permanently on planet, Earth. Colonizing the universe seems as practical as making a blade of grass from a rock.
That emphasizes the fact that the universe is a desert of original objects. How to put a biosphere on one of those deserted rocks is unknown. To expect to find other life forms on those deserted rocks is to believe in the adult fairy tales of science fiction. All known life is on planet, Earth, and all undiscovered life will be from Earth’s biosphere, most likely the largely unexplored oceans, not outer space. The hundreds of billions spent on space programs were like the millions spent on the slave trade of the 17th through 20th centuries. They were commercial enterprises, not science.
In summary, the universe is a population of deserted original objects with one solitary permanent biosphere that cannot be duplicated nor transferred. Undiscovered life will be found in the largely unexplored oceans, not outer space. Rational policies would expend resources on enhancing the solitary biosphere, not wasting them on deserted objects. Further, there are no biospheres in outer space, nor are there any evolved civilizations, nor any alien life forms. For life, all is in the permanent solitary biosphere of planet Earth. The rest is lifeless desert. The principle of morphological originality so indicates with the certainty of a fact. And the chances of being wrong were less than 1 in more than 2 sextillion chances.
The question of how long humanity has to live in this biosphere has been forecast twice. The forecasts included (1) infant deaths attributed to birth defects, (2) the estimated average number of genetic disorders per individual, (3) the per cent saturation of the mapped chromosome loci, (4) childhood hospital admissions that have an underlying disorder with a significant genetic component, (5) interception by abortion after prenatal genetic testing, (6) in-vitro fertilization and implantation after genetic screening, and (7) infanticide. One forecast for human extinction was 2085 and the other 2080. The data suggested that humanity has approximately 70 years left before extinction. Given the lack of lucrative commercial applications, like the centuries spent on the slave trade, and given the widespread lack of interest in human survival, the chances of somehow avoiding human extinction seemed quite unlikely. Humanity needs these facts in its elementary education systems.
