With the Big Bang & Cosmic Matter inevitably came Life & Thought. Perhaps slowly at first.
Looking back at the origins of life thought & action, human & animal we can see that we have come a long way as a race. At first mothers must have provided the care for their babies. Over many centuries in developing lands society has amplified the care originally given by mothers to meet the needs of advancing societies. Today we benefit from the help of doctors, hospitals, schools, senior care homes etc.
Very recently there is mankind generated human-like thought (first called AI thought). This is included here on a conjectural basis as it is in the very early stages from which it will either grow, flop or expand along an entirely different path.
(Along with AI comes a wave of fear. Let’s remember that humanity comprises the good, the bad & the in-between. AI will be no different & being no different humanity will profit by some developments & supress others. Business as usual.)
This website concentrates inclusion on present day care of an advancing society…..…..
When we try to act like machines, artificial intelligence (AI) can do a better job than we can. AI can outperform us at repetitive, programmable tasks, operating faster & more efficiently. (from an article on AI)
Machines aren’t good though at being humans — creativity & ingenuity still sit squarely in the wheelhouse of people.
Sounds good when read & although the general idea of human creativity outdoing AI persistence is likely true there are many occasions on which we get similar suggestions from humans & AI.
But (& a Big But it is ) where humans can often solve a problem by the application of creativity or ingenuity & the same problem can be solved by repetitive calculation then fast acting machines can do just as well & they don’t require humans to invest time
This leads us to Investigating how the mind can & does apply “creativity or ingenuity”. A whole separate study that warrants separate posts & which I will start by looking at what our Canadian Perimeter Institute of theoretical physics Waterloo Ontario has to say & branching out from there.
It is made to look so simple on the ever popular SciFi that we forget how hard & complicated the project will be. Perimeter Institute in Waterloo Ontario created a video starring Cameron Smith of a Mine University. A good idea to start by watching this video.
At present I plan to write about using an earth-like distant space planet & assume that humans can both find & use one of the many millions that are known to exist, some of them are bound to also have the right resources. We might also find ways to create a viable colony by bio-engineering & furnishing resource-wise an existing sol planet. That I will leave to the future.
What do we expect? Reasonable assumption based on findings to 2018 is that a suitable colony planet would be so far distant that we cannot communicate efficiently for most of the voyage with information travelling at only light speed. The journey to the vicinity we will pick to explore will likely exceed one lifetime so the arriving colonists will not be among the travellers who left but will be of voyage procreation. New research on earth will mostly be unavailable to travellers who will be compelled to do their own.
Once the voyageurs arrive at the planned destination it may be unsuitable & they have to pick another. Our colony ship must leave prepared for the contingencies.
COSMIC MATTER is Everything! the Milky Way that is our spiral galaxy & the Sun are part of it. Earth is a planet of the sun & is part of it.

Everything includes a substance of my imagination “Cosmic Must”. There must be something beyond Cosmic Matter. Not being a theologian all I am qualified to say is that there cannot be an atheist.
Outside “Cosmic Matter” is my mysterious “Cosmic Must” about which only God can tell.
Smile & The World Smiles With You – Weep & You Weep Alone.
Our Cosmos extends to everything beyond our own Milky Way galaxy.
A spiral galaxy in our universe of Cosmic Matter & in which our own Sun is a star.
Around the Sun are several planets revolving of which Earth is one.
This is where we live. The good. The bad. The indifferent. A mulch of peoples & mixed in every way. Plenty of history. Plenty of future I hazard (believing our clever researchers have put us beyond life extinction). Plenty to write about.
Regions, Countries, States, Provinces, Territories. A multitude to write about so see….
Whether we have to or not there is sure to be or planned to be a colony on a distant star. Creating a fully self contained viable one is a different matter. I expect to be adding & revising pages that detail this for my lifetime….
The Bang that I refer to arbitrarily as (1) Bang was the Big Bang of yore & is built around all Cosmic Matter which is constructed itself from particles. (2) Bang I construct from the non-physical intelligence that pertains to life & thought.
Looking back at the origins of life & thought, human & animal we can see that we have come a long way. At first mothers must have provided the care for their babies. Over many centuries in developing lands human society has amplified the care originally given by mothers to meet the needs of advancing societies. Today we benefit from the help of doctors, hospitals, schools, senior care homes etc.
Mankind generated human-like thought added to the inherent intelligence of new born babies, Artificial Intelligence? (AI)
Along with AI also comes a wave of fear. Let’s remember that humanity comprises the good, the bad & the in-between. AI will be the same & being no different humanity will profit by some developments & hurt by others. Substitute machinery for mothers & we may be headed toward trouble. Business as usual.
