When we are not so young anymore.

Lis­te­ned while wri­ting this post, try while rea­ding it :o)

This post is the eigh­teenth in a series reflec­ting on the mea­ning of life and the impor­tance of this ques­tion. These posts should be read in the order they are publi­shed as, star­ting at the 6th for example, dear rea­der, will mean the whole thing makes no sense. Hap­py reading! 

Come on then, that’s enough science-speak for now. My point was that although an inter­est in social sciences could lead us to ask such ques­tions, maths equal­ly, could drive us to such pon­de­rings. Any­way, let’s get back to the ques­tion in hand. 

Our time on Earth as an indi­vi­dual repre­sents just 3 ten-thou­sandths of the time huma­ni­ty has been present ove­rall; and huma­ni­ty,  just 7 hun­dred-thou­sandths of the time there has been life on Earth. 3 ten-thou­sandths- that would be 3 dol­lars for eve­ry 10,000. It’s not a lot, but it’s not nothing. So, does any of this actual­ly mean anything?

I have spo­ken of mathe­ma­tics and sta­tis­tics as is it around this that many theo­rists fall down. First­ly, if we take life itself, which has exis­ted on Earth for 4.2 bil­lion years, and the uni­verse in gene­ral which is 13.8 bil­lion years old, we qui­ck­ly rea­lise that life did not hang about long before making its appea­rance- just 3 tenths of the length of time the uni­verse had been in exis­tence in fact. It’s incre­dible enough just to com­pare the time that huma­ni­ty appea­red with that of the very first life on Earth, which is even less! It seems life was always sup­po­sed to happen.

Huma­ni­ty may seem to have dawd­led but loo­king at it this way we can see that in fact it was rather eager to get here! Life in com­pa­ri­son to ele­men­ta­ry par­ticles is extre­me­ly com­plex. But then again, so is intel­li­gence in com­pa­ri­son to a single pri­mor­dial cell.

Until next time…
