Hi Karen,
Thanks for your wonderful willingness to do the math on all the waves on all the shores in the last 10 million years!! I was curious about this but too intimidated to try and do the math.  Also, I appreciate your curiosity about the definition of a biological system and a living system… and universe and multiverse. . .  However, I’m not clear: Did you offer your views on my question to Ed: Can something be conscious without being alive? And, if something is conscious then can it be considered “alive”?


Our inquiry is so interesting that it definitely deserves far more time than I can devote to it. However, I’m a faithful reader & thinker about what is being offered!
