I appreciate your clarification Jonathan. I do not view exploration of the universe as a unique kind of living system as either “theistic” or “atheistic” but rather inquiry in a different territory than those two terms imply. My interest is in exploring whether it is scientifically valid to describe the universe as fundamentally “alive” and, if so, then our aliveness exists within a larger aliveness. I don’t see this as “advocacy” but rather as inquiry into scientific evidence concerning the nature of the cosmos and our connection within it. As a provisional perspective, the evidence seems to lean toward regarding the universe as a living system.
