Philosophy Wire: Life. Everywhere? Everywhere! So nowhere…


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2015-05-19]: For the first time, astronomers have detected the presence of complex organic molecules, the building blocks of life, in a protoplanetary disc surrounding a young star. The discovery reaffirms that the conditions that spawned the Earth and Sun are not unique in the Universe. [1] But what is something which exists everywhere? How is it different from something which exists nowhere? Can something “not exist” somewhere and “exist” somewhere else? How can the world be divided into sections independent of each other? How can you see the cosmos in pieces? Can the world live? Can it die? Look closely at yourself. You exist. And along with you everything. For ever. There is no other way. There never was.
