ExistentialQuestions.com is a blog that discusses the nature of our existence and consciousness. We contemplate Energy and Consciousness, Present Reality, The Beginning of Everything and What if?
As humans we have made promising strides in the development of our history.
Consider that we have discovered and/or invented mathematics. Proofs such as pi equaling a circles circumference divided by its diameter (3.14) = pi r squared.
These proofs work well here in our worldly system and our best estimates are that they are “universal”, but if we are unable to test these and other proofs at other far reaching and/or extreme spaces or times then how do we “know” that these proofs are universally true?
The very essence of “knowing” or “to know” is to have an awareness either through information and/or observation. But which type of observation is suitable to scientists or society in order to develop a proof?
The scientific method relies on empirical methods of data collection through experiments. The more we can replicate these experiments and get similar results the more “valid” they become.
Let us start with the assumption that the first law of thermodynamics is true. So, consider this thought experiment. As humans we consume food, which our bodies turn into energy. So, if energy can never be created nor destroyed, when humans die where does our energy go?
