E n t e r t a i n m e n t The Universe is a vehicle for entertainment.
Humanoid Sentience has been naturally selected by
billions of years of non-linear, Sol-3 biospheric
dynamics to awaken unto the basic threads of
Multiversal fuction, i.e. "entertainment".
Humans tend to stress and strain and grunt over
some basic innate queries:
Who am I?
(Answer: audience-participation / interface-
Why is there ANYTHING?
(Answer: entertainment props)
What does it all mean?
tragedy/horror -- entertainment)
What does the future hold?
(Answer: plot development, spin-offs, syndication, an entire
gamut of entertainment)
Are there any visiting extraterrestrial stagecraft
(Answer: to paraphrase A.C. Clarke: Any sufficiently
advanced technology will be indistinguishable from total,
immersive, virtual entertainment.)
