    That is the pertinent question.
    IMO, everything that can be measured and translated into a symbolic representation is of "logical necessity" a mathematical construct.
    It is what allows us to posit universal constants, the laws that govern the dynamical evolution of universally pervasive patterns such as; fractals, functions, equations, exponential functions, symmetry/symmetry breaking, invariants; [/quote]

    And self-similarity also refers to self-referential and ultimately to self-awareness.


    These are some of the universal constants which are not based on any physical consideration but on the abstract logic of how things work and are pervasive throughout the universe

    Pure energy could not be confined within a galaxy. Absolute zero is only available outside the universe and no where near black holes supermassive or not. So ...

    You forgot time, which includes “entropy”

    Consciousness is Based on Life .

    That's debatable.

    From the link:
    https://ysjournal.com/chaos-theory-and-consciousness/#

    Seems to me that this is what Tegmark proposes. Consciousness is not exclusively biological, but may also emerge from mathematical data processing patterns, i.e. AI consciousness.

    but not Real Life . As in Biological Life .

    Show me the difference. It's all made from the same stuff, just arranged in different patterns.
    It's the patterns that acquire emergent properties. I have heard that only biological patterns can be alive, but I have never heard that only biological patterns can be conscious. Are you sure? Can you explain?

    Life comes from Nature , from the Cosmos .

    AI can not exist on its own . It needs a being to build it . Life does not .

    Really?
    Is a virus alive? It also cannot exist on its own, but it can use a living organism to build copies of itself. Variegated tulips are artificially made by viruses.

    So viruses do not come from Nature ? They do of course . So what's your point Write4U ?

    "Pure energy" is for Star Trekkies.

    It is not science.

    Variegated tulips do not come from nature. They are artificially created by viruses, clever little artists manipulating the tulip genes to make some of the most beautiful art.
    Robots are artificially created by humans, clever mammals making tools to do all their work for them.

    Viruses do .

    Tools agreed . Lets hope that these tools are nothing more than tools .

    What is the distinction? Energy is "ability to do work" regardless of instrument used.
    A star has ability to do use nuclear reactions (work) to create energy and other works of Art.
