Whence Whither Epilogue, Humanity’s Prologue
Whence And Whither Epilogue,
At the present expansion phase of the universe towards its all-energy pole, all mass formats, regardless of size and type, are destined to reconvert to energy.
Every mass format, spin array, regardless of size and type, including self-replicable organisms and inanimate formats, either undergoes conversion to energy in any of a host of processes, or postpones its mass-to-energy conversion temporarily, “naturally selected”, by any of a host of processes of taking in energy and/ or mass and constraining the energy temporarily.
For cognizant organisms “natural selection” does not depend solely on physiological adaptation to evolving circumstances. They can manipulate-modify their circumstances, evolve their culture, to gain self-preferred circumstantial conditions for prolonged postponement, survival time.
This is the ever-facing challenge of Earth’s humanity, at each and all levels of its organization, everywhere.
