Tiassa, -How about this? We say, life, death, time, feeding, digestion, reproducing, excreting .... I offer you the universe as a single process. Where we segregate human processes as myriad and unique, they are all but facets of the same process. Anything that makes us different, say, from a quasar is mere perception.- I don't consider your elaborating on my theme as nitpicking, it's cool. Corp Hudson, so far we have taken a mere glimpse of a tiny portion of the universe and nobody can say exactly what's going on. We see and note all of the wonders, we read the big theorists and we are led to speculate. Scientists use maths and brainpower. Philosophers listen to the scientists and then use intuition and brainpower. When a layperson, is using relative terms to describe a very large picture that nobody has ever seen as a whole, one shouldn't take every individual word literally and dwell on it, but rather try to comprehend the gist of the sum, of what the individual words are trying to suggest.
