    Might that be a form of life? Other than the violent and chaotic production of the necessary chemistry and biochemistry, it seems evolve in a fairly orderly manner.

    Well, I believe the term God identifies a willful being and I don't believe the universe is willful,

    But when I think of chaos theory; "a butterfly flaps his wings in China and eventually causes a storm in Texas, US" by sheer mathematical functions, I begin to wonder, at what stage does "life" begin.

    Or a star blows up and 10 billion years later a butterfly hatches from a cocoon that used to be a caterpillar. One organism morphing into a completely different organism, using the atomic waste from a supernova.

    How Does a Caterpillar Turn into a Butterfly?

    The expression is also used as a kind of self-generating process of finding comfort in balance or symmetry.

    This is an in-depth examination of how consciousness actually takes place.
