“Our Universe Could Actually Be One Big Alien”, Astrophysicist Claim

One astronomer believes that the entire cosmos may be one big extraterrestrial.

Is it feasible that the cosmos as a whole is a single enormous extraterrestrial entity? Caleb Scharf, a Columbia University astronomer, believes it is possible.

The near-infinite intelligence of an extraterrestrial civilization so old and advanced that it transported its whole life into the quantum realm, according to Scharf, may be the driving force behind the entire cosmos.

In a provocative article published in Nautilus, Scharf contends that an alien species may evolve to the point where it is indistinguishable from magic. Physics, on the other hand, is pure magic in the way it works.

“You’d undoubtedly seem very miraculous if you came up to a gathering of Paleolithic farmers wearing your iPhone and a pair of sneakers,” Scharf wrote. “However, the distinction is insignificant: the farmers would still know you as someone who resembles them, and they’d be snapping photos in no time.” But what if life has developed to the point where it appears to be physics rather than mystical?”

Scharf points out that we don’t know how much of the universe is made up of. We have no idea how it works or, more significantly, why it works. Only 5% of the universe is made up of regular stuff, with the rest made up of a unique mix of dark matter and dark energy.

“Some astronomers have claimed that dark matter has a more complex inner life, noting tiny inconsistencies in observations and simulations.”

Like the night in Game of Thrones, the actual reality we perceive is dark and full of terrors.

“In that case, dark matter may store a great deal of complexity, and it’s likely that it’s where all technologically sophisticated life eventually ends up, or at least where most life has always been.” What better approach to avoid the dangers of supernovae and gamma-ray bursts than to adopt an electromagnetic radiation-resistant shape? Call it a day once you’ve uploaded your cosmos to the huge dark side of real estate.”

If a society survived long enough to grasp the myriad of nuances that life involves, the conversion of the mundane into the heavenly, or as Scharf phrased it, the “normal-matter-to-dark-matter data-transfer mechanism,” might theoretically be duplicated in a new, vastly safer medium.

Perhaps astrophysicists are perplexed by the idea that dark matter is being deliberately controlled from within, which muddles any relationship between astronomical models and data.

“Or, to go even farther,” Scharf said, “maybe the behavior of normal cosmic stuff that we attribute to dark matter is driven by something altogether different: a living state manipulating luminous matter for its own purposes.”

I agree with the astrophysicist when he says the universe does “funny and surprise stuff.” Five billion years ago, it began spreading at a quicker rate. Although scientists assume this is due to dark energy, no one knows why it took so long. Is it a coincidence that life appeared on Earth at the same period as it did on Mars?

“Many cosmologists believe that this shows that our universe is part of a vast multiverse in which the strength of dark energy varies from place to place.” We live in a neighborhood that is suitable for our way of life. Dark energy is more strong elsewhere, ripping apart the cosmos too quickly for cosmic structures to evolve and life to take root.”

It took eight billion years from the birth of the universe to the day it began to accelerate its expansion. It’s plausible to believe that if life began early in the cosmos, it had enough time to develop into a Type V civilisation on the extended Kardashev scale.

When the universe was far more compact than it is now, traveling between stars and galaxies and conquering space would have been much easier. It’s nearly obvious that the universe used to be a lot more active and dangerous than it is now. Even more reason to book a flight to somewhere exotic.

According to Scharf, we might not discover advanced life because it is an integrated and unsuspicious component of what we’ve assumed to be the natural world.

Our universe is shaped and held together by dark matter and dark energy; gravity is just too weak, and galaxies would disintegrate if these unique components were not there. It’s possible that the hyper-advanced aliens facilitated the emergence of life as we know it by relocating themselves into this habitat.

“Perhaps hyper-advanced life isn’t merely exterior,” Scharf concludes. “Perhaps it’s already all over the place.” It’s in everything we conceive of as physics, from fundamental particle and field behavior to complexity and emergent processes.”

This is one of the most amazing hypotheses I’ve ever heard. It looks into and validates all of the possibilities. It tells us that aliens do exist in their most basic form. At the same time, they are and are not. At the same moment, they are both alive and dead. They created us by giving us the freedom to create ourselves. At the same time, they are both everywhere and nowhere.

What are your thoughts on this hypothesis?
