I've asserted that the universal terminal goal is to extend the existence of consciousness into the future. Tell me where, or in what situation this terminal goal is not applicable.
As they claim to be divinely inspired, you can't disprove their logic.
Natural selection and the anthropic principle are mutually exclusive. Like other mammals, homo sapiens is regarded by viruses, fungi and bacteria as nothing more than a vehicle and source of food.
Mutual Assured Destruction is the prime example, but there are plenty of smaller-scale zealots who consider that murdering infidels and dying in the process, is the ultimate moral duty of an otherwise rational human.
And I'm not sure that 99.999999999% of the universe cares a damn about whatever you think consciousness might be.

Most conscious entities care about their own survival,
Quote from: hamdani yusuf on 03/12/2022 10:25:22Most conscious entities care about their own survival,But as far as we know, conscious entities comprise less than 0.00000000001% of the mass of the universe, if that.
You can estimate the mass of known conscious entities - it's not more than the total biomass of this planet, about 6 x 1011 tonnes.You can also estimate the mass of the observable universe, about 1057 tonnes.
1. Yes2. Noas long as 1057 >> 1011 I think we can safely ignore consciousness as a significant element of the observable universe.
But their existence depends on our actions!
Mathematics. The development or extinction of consciousness (whatever that is) may matter to you, but not to the Crab Nebula. Most of the universe got on pretty well without it for 10 billion years, and is utterly unaware of it even now.One of the first lessons you learn in science is that nature is wholly indifferent to what you, Pol Pot, or Mother Teresa thinks.
