Picture this: Mankind and everything we see around us, is actually located within a super-advanced alien entity. A Scientists proposes a controversial theory suggesting it could be the reason why we haven encountered ET yet. “Perhaps our universe is one of the new ways in which some other super-advanced civilization transcribed its world,” says an American astrophysicist. Alien life could be so advanced it becomes indistinguishable from physics.
According to an extraordinary theory proposed by Caleb Scharf, astrophysicist and director of astrobiology at Columbia University, New York (USA), if we have not yet found alien life it is because the universe, in fact, is an alien.
Perhaps the universe is the “brain” of a hyper-extended alien race; he indicates in an article for the scientific journal Nautilus.
In this sense, the American astrophysicist proposes the staggering idea that an alien species may have become so advanced that it would be indistinguishable from physics.
“…Presumably, life doesn’t have to be made of atoms and molecules but could be assembled from any set of building blocks with the requisite complexity. If so, a civilization could then transcribe itself and its entire physical realm into new forms. Indeed, perhaps our universe is one of the new forms into which some other civilization transcribed its world…”
In the article, Scharf stresses that only five percent of the universe is composed of the material we know and understand while a 27 percent is considered “unseen” and mysterious.
The scientist also opines that dark matter “could contain a real complexity,” and perhaps it is where “all technologically advanced life ends or where most of life has always been.”
Scharf elaborates his theory saying: “…What better way to escape the nasty vagaries of supernova and gamma-ray bursts than to adopt a form that is immune to electromagnetic radiation? Upload your world to the huge amount of real estate on the dark side and be done with it…”
If such an advanced civilization does in fact exist, and if it managed to learn how to encode living systems, “all you need to do is build a data transfer system from normal matter to dark matter: a 3D dark matter printer,” he elaborates in the article posted on Nautilus.
“…Or to take this a step further, perhaps the behavior of normal cosmic matter that we attribute to dark matter is brought on by something else altogether: a living state that manipulates luminous matter for its own purposes,” added Scharf.
“In other words, life might not just be in the equations. It might be the equations,” concluded Scharf.
