Could we be living in an extradimensional alien entity? According to some scientists, this theory isn’t that far-fetched, and could be the main reason why we haven’t contacted with aliens yet. “Perhaps our universe is one of the new ways in which some other super-advanced civilization transcribed its world,” says one American scientist, and adds that alien life may have become indistinguishable from physics.
The theory was proposed by Caleb Scharf, an astrophysicist and director of astrobiology at Columbia University. According to Scharf, living in an alien universe may the reason why we haven’t discovered alien life yet. He says that maybe our universe is the brain of an advanced alien race which evolved beyond physics.
Here’s what he wrote in an article for Nautius:
“…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 explains that only 5%of the universe is composed of known materials, while 27% of it is still mysterious. He also says that dark matter “could contain a real complexity,” and that maybe it’s the place where “all technologically advanced life ends or where most of life has always been.” “…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 this advanced civilization exists, and if they learned how to encode living system, then
“all you need to do is build a data transfer system from normal matter to dark matter: a 3D dark matter printer,” Scharf further elaborates on his theory. “…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. In other words, life might not just be in the equations. It might be the equations,” concludes the author of this interesting theory.
