Do you believe in ayy lmao's or ghosts? I don't entirely believe in ghosts but I do think there might be something out there in this gigantic universe.

☲ Prince Ember Storm!SNowbAlLfo 41866361

I believe in what many people would call ghosts from experiencing things I can't explain. Moving shadows and the like.

I do believe in ghosts! Maybe not the corporeal kind or the ones that chase you when you turn away from them. But the notion of "ghosts" arises from the connection between memory and death.

Suppose we spent a week together and I told you that, though your body will live on, you won't remember me or anything that happened during the time we spent together, including what I am telling you now? Psychologically it is death. Since "forgetting" is dying, then "remembering" must be what "lives on". Colloquially we speak of "remembering ourselves" when undergoing a trial in pursuit of an aim, for instance. But who is the rememberer? Is it one person or many? And can the memory itself take on a "life" which is more real than the actual life being remembered? That is a ghost.

So a "ghost" in one sense is "the living past", but it is also "dead meaning". It is used this way by Stirner, for instance, but as an idea it appears in myths and folk tales long before he appropriated it. And not always in a negative sense, either! There's a fable by R.L. Stevenson where a man is lead by a spirit to dig up the cairn of his ancestors, from which he receives instructions he doesn't understand but which will lead him to his destiny (meeting the mother of his unborn son, who is the 'leading spirit').

Recently I cam across a thing that theorized the size of the observable universe VS the size of the actual universe.

TL:DR it basically compared the observable universe to being the size of a light bulb, and the entire universe being the size of Pluto.

Space is big.

Ghosts are just hallucinations, but if the hallucination carries any meaning for the person who saw it, then for them they saw a real ghost.

It definitely seems like the most likely answer. I'm just holding off on committing to the belief until we get concrete evidence.

In the meantime, I also think we should prepare for the possibility that we are, in fact, alone, by taking it upon ourselves to spread life across the universe.

Note that I'm not saying we are alone. I'm just saying that in the unlikely event that we are, we would be responsible for populating the universe.

I think if we're aware of a planet that is young, in the habitable zone, and known to be devoid of life, we should send a probe containing simple microscopic lifeforms to "seed" it.

Sweet! Another one for the cause.

>>41866779
Well, one of my core beliefs is that life is valuable and must be preserved. If we're the only planet with it in the universe, that makes humans the most sapient life in the universe. So if we fuck ourselves over and kill off the planet, or even fail to get off it before the sun goes kaput, wouldn't that make it kind of our fault that the universe would be a lifeless abyss after we're gone?

I think studying astronomy has really solidified this view by giving some perspective on just how young life as we know it is compared to existence as we know it. If we're the first, we could also be the last, and that thought bugs me.

Earth was once young, in the habitable zone, and devoid of life.

Wouldn't seeding planets with our microbes be destroying or at least severely hampering any possible future life that could develop there? (and if you believe Earth was seeded just extend the question out to wherever Earth life first developed) Is simply that any form of life at all continues to spread and exist good in your philosophical framework? Should we as a people continue attempting to prevent invasive species from out competing native ones for the sake of biodiversity and the fundamental value of a unique species? Or does uniqueness hold no fundamental value and the only good is the continuation of something living?

>>41866845
I think the theory is that since we don't know how the first living organism came to be, the simplest thing is to assume it's one in a million, and seeding a planet would save it from the most likely fate of never having life spring up.

>>41866845
That's an excellent point. I do think it's a possibility that Earth may have been seeded. I also do think it would be bad if our life "overtook" life that was already developing on the planet in question, or would have developed without interference. That said, I also think the nature of life is to spread, so pretty much any species could be considered invasive from a certain frame of reference.

Ultimately, I would say my answer to that rests in part on the probability that a lifeless, habitable planet will develop life, and in part on the possibility of seeding with something as primitive and minimally invasive/destructive as possible. Unique life that springs into existence without external influence should be preferred, but created life is better than no life.

If it can't consent either way, then the best we can do is make life that will want to live and be grateful it came to be.

You ask this as a member of the most intelligent species we know of. It makes sense to not want to "downgrade" to a "lower" life form. Yet in spite of this, there are people that do.

well it would be a positive amount of joy, the question is what the joy to suffering ratio is and how much suffering outweighs joy. I'm sure ten indian children died to bring me this laptop but i still like it

>>41866870
>>41866873
I think you two have a fundamental difference in core belief in that one of you believes the existence of life is in and of itself a good thing while the other believes only if life experiences more joy than suffering is it a good thing. A discussion about conclusions drawn from these basic premises cannot lead anywhere without reconciling these core premises.

My last roommate was sort of an anarcho-primitivist. Their war is with urbanization more than with technics per se. One way of thinking about it is that the world didn't have to develop the way it did. Living in modern societies, the urban or civilized life seems like an inevitable outcome of man's "natural" inclinations. But is it really so? And if not, have we made the best choices in terms of happiness, longevity, and a harmonious relationship with ourselves and the Earth? The AmPrims attempt to offer their own answers to these questions...

I swear I've got a pamphlet around here somewhere...

Yeah, that's the thing about ghosts. There is actual science that can rule it out. Like, it has been said alot of the experiences are usually hallucinations from carbon monoxide and even sometimes infra sounds.

For some, maybe even most, certainly not all.

I would think that evidence showing that people generally hallucinate from carbon monoxide poisoning is a fair theory. Because in general people seem to link their experiences in "old creepy houses" they live in. I tend to side with as the latter (ghosts actually exist) doesn't seem to back very much up besides "I saw it with my own two eyes, man".

Sure, when it's present.

And when it isn't, it's not very helpful for explaining anything.

You don't have to believe anything, but anyone who thinks science has "disproved" anything related to this is getting way ahead of themselves.

I've never claimed they don't exist in anyway. I just don't believe in ghosts at all. Like, there are people who claim they been choked in their sleep by a ghost when it could have been something as simple as sleep paralysis. I am just skeptical of the existence of ghosts and rightfully so.
