The Portuguese Man-O-War is very close to being an actual battleship! It is a siphonophore, meaning that it is a collection of multiple organisms, each with their own task. These are so dependent on eachother that they cannot survive on their own. It isn't a jellyfish, despite looking like one.

Biological existence is a dictatorship - all living organisms are fundamentally slaves

We are also economic slaves to money and work. Submit to labor in exchange for a paycheck or starve to death on the street - due to having no purchasing power and thus (in this current system) no right to life. (Most people in the modern world are not able to 'go live in the woods' and make that function they lack those skills so it is a gun to the head scenario with no alternatives for the vast majority)

And even if you are willing to work for money to pay for rent and food - but are unable to obtain employment you will starve to death on the street, despite being willing to slave away to maintain your futile temporary existence.

You may indeed even be one of those rare people who genuinely enjoys your job/work/career. That does not however change the fact that you still do HAVE to do it. And you will starve on the streets if you did not do it, or found some other work in exchange for a paycheck in case you quit the current occupation to substitute in some other source of monetary i

Memes Prove that Money is a Lie and Humanity is an Organism

I know this sounds asinine but just give me a few paragraphs to get some momentum.

You can't exist in 2020 and not intuitively just know what a meme is. Even those that exist totally cut-off from the online sphere would get the picture after a few examples. Most typically we think of image macros like this, or this, but these are just a couple of modern, digital memes and don't begin to scratch the surface of just exactly what a meme is, and why the answer to that might be really fucking important.

For example, a picture doesn't need any text to be a meme - similarly, a picture can be only text and still be a meme. A phrase can be a meme, or even a single word. A sound. Symbols. The structure of the building you're in and the design of the device you're reading this from are memetic artifacts. Musical subgenres, fashion and style trends, social patter

Question: Do you think that a concept, or organisation of concepts, can be viewed as a living organism?

Snow Crash has me thinking about a rule set I've had in my own personal ontology for 20+ yrs. In Snow Crash Stephenson posits that information can be a virus that infect and alters not only the mind but the brain that houses the consciousness. This resonated a lot with me and I'm curious to see how this group thinks of this sort of thing. I've been one to create observational rules that helped me in life. One of those rules is Living Ordered Systems. In short, when humans create an ordered system (a corporation, club, gang, fandom, business, etc) it becomes a hivemind organism that is independently alive and separate in it's goals/purposes from the members of it's body.

In both cases the ethereal ends up being seen as alive in the same manner we would view a cat or a bacterium. So do you think that ethereal things like concepts, or organised groups of concepts, have the same (or similar) properties as a living thing?

If all of existence is the manifestation of awareness then there is only one thing that makes life worth living.

Whether that other conscious organism is yourself or someone else.

When a human dies, the same thing happens that happens to a tree or a flower. It gets a new consciousness. It has to go through the same process of learning how it's done and becoming more experienced.

Trying to build alien worlds that aren't just a carbon-copy of earth's plant/animal system tends to derail part of my progress for a few projects of mine, but at the same time they're kind of crucial to the environments I'm trying to build. I've got a few design ideas I'm personally working through, but it's made me curious as to how other people are dealing with the issue of environments and organisms with their worldbuilding, as well as biomes and those that live in said biomes including how well a human might survive in such a biome

Question about organisms as "entropy machines"

(This might be super obvious and well established, but it's not entirely clicking for me right now.)

Does an organism help increase entropy as a sort of "entropy machine" faster than if the organism didn't exist?

For example, consider light from the sun hitting the earth before life exists. It's going to heat up whatever ground or water it hits and some of the energy is going to continue on as reflected light until it hits something else. Not much else happens.

Later, plants evolve and now the sunlight helps fuel processes which break up the ground via root structures, break up other chemical bonds found in nutrients and water, etc.

It seems to me that the plant is a more efficient method for increasing entropy at a faster rate than if it didn't exist. Is this accurate?

TIL 70% Ethanol (alcohol) is a more effective disinfectant because pure alcohol on a single celled organism triggers coagulation (clot) preventing it from penetrating deeper into the cell wall rendering it dormant but still alive. The water in 70% ethanol allows it to penetrate before it can clot. compliancenaturally.com/bโ€ฆ

Could a cell/organism, in principle, replicate an arbitrary protein

Maybe this question is a bit to generic, but essentially my though process is as follows:

Replicating an arbitrary protein (e.g. by generating the RNA or DAN sequence that generate it) seems fairly useful for loads of reasons (e.g. adding useful or facilitating prompter immune response).

It seems that humans can do this but it requires macro-level technology which isn't physically replicable in an organism. But I'm not sure on this.

In theory, could an organism or even cell be designed to do this ? If not, what are the bottlenecks that can only be crossed with "higher level" tools.

Biological existence is a dictatorship - all living organisms are fundamentally slaves

We are also economic slaves to money and work. Submit to labor in exchange for a paycheck or starve to death on the street - due to having no purchasing power and thus (in this current system) no right to life. (Most people in the modern world are not able to 'go live in the woods' and make that function they lack those skills so it is a gun to the head scenario with no alternatives for the vast majority)

And even if you are willing to work for money to pay for rent and food - but are unable to obtain employment you will starve to death on the street, despite being willing to slave away to maintain your futile temporary existence.

You may indeed even be one of those rare people who genuinely enjoys your job/work/career. That does not however change the fact that you still do HAVE to do it. And you will starve on the streets if you did not do it, or found some other work in exchange for a paycheck in case you quit the current occupation to substitute in some other source of monetary i

Memes might prove Humanity is an organism and money is a lie - and that might be our only hope.

I know this sounds asinine but just give me a few paragraphs to get some momentum.

You can't exist in 2020 and not intuitively just know what a meme is. Even those that exist totally cut-off from the online sphere would get the picture after a few examples. Most typically we think of image macros like this, or this, but these are just a couple of modern, digital memes and don't begin to scratch the surface of just exactly what a meme is, and why the answer to that might be really fucking important.

For example, a picture doesn't need any text to be a meme - similarly, a picture can be only text and still be a meme. A phrase can be a meme, or even a single word. A sound. Symbols. The structure of the building you're in and the design of the device you're reading this from are memetic artifacts. Musical subgenres, fashion and style trends, social patter
