partner, initiate freakiness, wait nine months, and there you have it; Consciousness. Life. A sentient being of your very creation borne of flesh and blood. But is this the only way to create a mind? Before mankind attempts to create a form of artificial consciousness, we must first accept that we have a problem. In his paper, “Artificial Consciousness in an Artificial World”, Sarkadi suggests that we must create and inhabit complex and immersive virtual environments if we wish to also create and engage with artificially conscious beings. The creation of consciousness may not involve direct creation, but rather the forming of the ingredients needed for consciousness to create itself.Interaction is key; it is how we know our fellow humans are aware, it is how we know we are alive, and it helps us form an idea of what our consciousness truly consists of.

which drives the processes necessary for life to exist. They create planets, they create elements; we humans are literally made from molecules fused in the very core of a star. But are stars the only way of creating life?According to our current understanding of how life emerges on barren worlds, living things can be rather fussy about the conditions they’re prepared to accept. Abraham Loeb is an American theoretical theorist who believes life may have existed fifteen million years after the Big Bang. Scientists have responded to Abraham Loeb’s idea of a habitable early universe with mixed emotions.In one of our other recent videos, The Gaia Hypothesis, we explored the theory that life works as part of a feedback loop with any environment in which it develops.

The Gaia Hypothesis

Are we at one with the Earth? Is our relationship with our planet..

symbiotic? This may sound like the ramblings of a dirty, tree-fondling hippy, but the idea to which we are referring is a genuine scientific theory put forward in the 1970’s by chemist James Lovelock and microbiologist Lynn Margulis. Also known as Gaia Theory, Gaia Principle or Gaia used to hang out with but stopped when he wouldn’t quit touching me, this idea originally proposed that our planet’s habitability was regulated by the presence of life. The Gaia Principle could be seen as nothing more than an attempt to reframe how mankind sees the Earth, how it sees itself, how we think about the environment and how we treat all life throughout the world and beyond.More evidence in support of the Gaia Hypothesis can be found within Earth’s oceans and through the measurement of our global temperatures.

Lukas Richterek and Pavel Bakala describe a scenario whereby a planet is drawn into orbit not by a star, but a black hole.If a planet was found orbiting a specific type of black hole, there is a chance that strange life-forms could be found upon it.Opatrny, Richterek and Bakala have estimated that a total of 900 watts of useable power could be squeezed out of the temperature difference in place between a black hole sun and the CMB for use on one of its orbiting planets. According to Tomas Opatrny, a world in a similar situation to Miller’s Planet in the movie Interstellar would be heated to nearly 900 degrees Celsius.

cosmologists sure do love their gloomy names don’t they?
And we can add another one to that list with the hypothetical existence of Dark Stars. A Dark Star is a theoretical type of star whose discovery may help us understand how our universe came to be as it is. Katherine Freese is a theoretical astrophysicist on the lookout for WIMPS, and before you get any ideas, no, she doesn’t have a weird attraction to simpering beta males.Despite having been created over thirteen billion years ago, just 200 million years after the Big Bang, it is the opinion of Katharine Freese that some Dark Stars may persist today in the farthest regions of our universe. If you want to search for Dark Matter out there in the universe, where would you go? The centre of a galaxy? Inside a supermassive black hole?
