Finding Meaning in Nothing
The universe was around before there was anything to perceive it.
@phoenixthepenguin, Your claim of the universe being around before there was anything to perceive it is just an extrapolation. You are correct with the idea that the observer is interconnected with the observed at all times. Though, I would like to expand on this to what my very basic knowledge on the matter will allow me to.
I imagine you are familiar with the concept of an organism-environment. That is, you cannot successfully describe an organism without also describing it’s environment. For example, you can’t describe the function of something walking without also describing the earth or surface the thing is walking on. Otherwise it is just a pair of legs dangling in space (the conventional western idea of the word space). For this reason there is a fundamental connection between the organism and it’s environment. This connection extends to, well.., everything.
