My friend, the universe, 13.8 billion years old, is a baby that has just been delivered from the womb of existence with a Big Bang. It’s full of hope and aspirations as it looks forward to trillions of years of marvelous exponential evolution and expansion before it closes its eyes and surrenders the tremendous wisdom collected during its lifetime to the timeless-cloud. By the time it dies, it will have lived many magnificent trillions upon trillions of years with yet-unimaginable life spreading all over its now barren lands.
Just like we see the coming and going of creatures, structures, and ideas during our short lifetime on Earth, the dying universe will witness countless planets, stars, galaxies, and lifeforms come and go in a constant cycle of birth and death, creation and destruction. And with every cycle, a new evolved and expanded universal consciousness emerges from the ashes, with contributions and information of those who came before.
This universe, my friend, is a neighborhood in iSH’s many universes. It is still under construction, and soon enough during its lifetime—not yours or mine—it will be filled with vibrant life of amazing creatures, including our distant semideum offspring.
