Episode Summary

EDIT

Could the key to understanding the universe be biology and not physics? Could it be that the universe is actually alive - a self-replicating super-organism with a heartbeat and a mind? Is it conscious of us - or does it only exist because we are conscious of it?

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Freeman: From the smallest microbe to the tallest tree, we think we know life when we see it. But could life also exist on a vastly different scale ... where planets act like single cells and black holes reproduce the DNA of space itself? Could the secrets of the cosmos lie not in physics, but in biology? Is the universe alive?

    • Freeman: To think of the universe as a single living thing stretches our imaginations quite a bit. The cosmos could be driven by a heartbeat that pumps out clusters of galaxies once every ... trillion years. We could be the child of another universe and be spawning countless more. Or, the cosmos could be a giant computation - infected by a computer virus called ... biological life. And we can't tell who is more alive - the universe or us.
