Two more #SoCIA18 talks today! Some confusion but I believe the next one is "What Lives? Life, Consciousness, and the Eco-Systemic Multiversity" by Kala Perkins. Ooh, she used to be an neuroscientist, might be my jam. (Extra jammy. It's all jamful here today.)
What is life? Why (don't we) respect it? Beyond the Last Common Ancestor, we share our origins with the entire universe from its original impulse, stellar atomic synthesis. A radically eco-systemic view.
There are things we co-exist with, intertwined with, than we know. Forex, we sure can't list all the bacteria that make our digestion possible. Bioethics require a better understanding of life/birth.
Example: egg and sperm from donors in different countries, gestated in a woman in a third country (blanking on the proper term for that) - the child goes back to a donor, and their government refuses to recognize it as a citizen of there.
Analogy/causality goes up to infinite universe/multiverse: each ontological being as a cosmic seed potential? This part of the talk is kinda beyond me, but the bioethics stuff is lit.
Harmonics across scales: neurons to people to communities, up to planets and the universe. This is hard stuff to talk about - I love to challenge my own students to think about how things interact across scales of space & time.
We are only beginning to understand those links & emergent properties on a human scale (e.g. neurons - brains - people!groups - cultures); what might they be at as cosmological scale?
