.:My DO TO List:.
When are you dead?
It used to be when your heart stopped beating. Now, we routinely stop the heart during medical procedures. So, we have “brain death” that is when there is no electrical activity in the brain for an extended period of time. Still, it is a judgment call by the doctor.
Even after brain death, when no artificial means are keeping you alive it takes a long time, often days or even weeks, for all of the cells in your body to die. So, the question becomes “what is life”? Your cells are alive, but the molecules that make them up are not. Further, the atoms which make up your body are not alive. They are mostly unchanged since the time of the Big Bang 11 Billion years ago. Your cellular make up changes about every five to seven years, so the material that makes you today was not you seven years ago and most of what is “you” today will be dead, discarded and recycled by 2015.
It is as if the atoms in your body have decided to be “you” for awhile and then in a few years they will decide to be something else, a bacterium, a tree cell, grass or even another human being already alive just as the atoms in yourselves might have been me fifteen years ago.
It is the great flow of energy and matter, changing combining and recombining. New compositions of matter which then decompose and reassemble anew.

Here is your mind blown for the day:) As we know, the sun is a star. In our galaxy alone, there are estimated to be over 100 billion stars. How many earth-like planets orbit these stars? An estimated 17 billion. “Almost all sun-like stars have a planetary system,” said Francois Fressin, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
Also, there is estimated to be around 100 billion galaxies in the universe. So if each galaxy has millions or billions of earthlike planets, and there are hundreds of billions of galaxies, does it make sense to think that we are the only form of intelligent life in the Universe? But it goes even further.
At the center of each galaxy lies a black hole. Equations show that within the black hole of each galaxy lies ANOTHER whole universe. “Like part of a cosmic Russian doll, our universe may be nested inside a black hole that is itself part of a larger universe. In turn, all the black holes found so far in our universe—from the microscopic to the supermassive—may be doorways into alternate realities.”
According to the new equations, the matter black holes absorb and seemingly destroy is actually expelled and becomes the building blocks for galaxies, stars, and planets in another reality. Essentially, every black hole contains a smaller alternate universe. And our universe might just exist inside a black hole of a galaxy in a much larger universe.
So within the 100 billion galaxies in our known universe lies 100 billion universes in the galactic black holes of our universe, with 100 billion more galaxies each containing another universe with more galaxies, and so on infinitely. What a Creation we live in.
