Sources & further reading:

At this very second, you are on a narrow ledge between life and death. You probably donโ€™t feel it, but there is an incredible amount of activity going on inside you. And this activity can never stop.

Picture yourself as a slinky falling down an escalator moving upwards - the falling part represents the self replicating processes of your cells, the escalator represents the laws of physics, driving you forwards. To be alive is to be in motion but never arriving anywhere. If you reach the top of the escalator there is no more falling possible and you are dead forever.

Somewhat unsettlingly, the universe wants you to reach the top. How do you avoid that and why are you alive?

This notion is very wide, biology wise. There's an evolutionary theory called "Red Queen Theory" based on Alice's Red Queen quote "It takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place." It explains the relationships between different organisms in an environment, such as predation, parasitism, and how an organism has to evolve to compensate for the other organisms acquired advantages (an actual arms race), therefore staying at the same level that they were before.

I got really emotional watching this video. The processes of the universe, of life and of evolution are breathtakingly beautiful. The universe itself is meaningless, but the fact that we get to experience it helps give our existence meaning. Thank you guys so much for it. On a side note, there is a mistake in the cladogram shown at 6:12 because it shows fungi splitting from animals before they splits from plants. Fungi are actually our closes evolutionary relatives, so our lineages were the last to split. It should go like: l---Plants --l l l--------l----Fungi l----Animals

@charania007 in my opinion obviously there was fundamental forces. think of it this way, if just the right amount of carbon molecules and proteins or whatever come together in incredibly specific circumstances (pressure, the way proteins bond etc)and through chemistry start a process that can sustain itself simply by floating around hydrothermal vents in the ocean, gaining energy and mass to keep the process going.

@A H it all depends on where humans place the boundary between dead and alive. Since something "dead" can evolve into something "alive" you might find that something "dead" is actually alive in a certain sense.

Do you think life began multiple times? That the first couple of times didn't last because they couldn't divide into more cells, or that they couldn't create enough energy to keep them alive? Do you think that in one of the later times in which life began, it was only then that it could last and evolve?

I think as we go out into the universe and start discovering self-replicating molecules, or micro-structures that could potentially be considered "organisms," the example of the mitochondria might become the litmus test for saying what's alive and what isn't. Only if the cell is coexisting with another type of cell inside of it - working to mutual benefit - can the thing be considered 'alive,' by our comprehension.

What if we solely exist to increase entropy? Living organisms, especially when they make it so far as we have and build a civilization, are creating WAY more entropy WAY faster then any non-living matter. Therefore the universe might be "interested" in having living creatures, because its moving faster to entropy than without living creatures. The reason for live is causing entropy.

5:40 I truly believe that this the great filter. I believe life may exist in abundance in the universe but can only achieve at max simple one-celled organisms at best probably surviving through a simple process such as glycolysis But somehow, someway, two single celled organisms became one, and life just exploded from there. We have no idea how this happened, but that it happened is extremely clear. I believe we may actually be the first sentient life, at least in our galaxy, to have grown from dead matter to single celled organisms, to multicellular beings capable of evolving a consciousness. Just like we don't know how the first nucleic acids began replicating themselves into better and better generations, but we know it happened. We have no idea how the primordial mitochondria and primordial single cell fused, but we know it happened, we know that the primordial mitochondria's DNA almost "decided" to die, in order to ensure its own DNA's survival. Somehow, dying was beneficial. If I'm inaccurate, someone please correct me.

I always found that this might be one of the reasons complex and intelligent life does not exist on earth because the event that caused mitochondria to be absorbed could be an extremely low odds event that also requires multiple other extremely low odds events to happen. For all we know we did a grand slam on the lottery of rare events or what happened could be common and we just ain't hearing the other species.

Since a glucose molecule has about 100x more energy than an ATP molecule, and cellular respiration produces 36-38 ATP molecules per glucose, that means 62-64% of what you eat is lost.

If dark energy is an intrinsic part of empty space and it is exponentially growing then doesnโ€™t that suggest that the total amount of energy in the universe is also not fixed but growing?

Very nice video but also picturing life in a tol easy way. The complexity of the origin of life is unbelievable complex that it is not just cell parts come together. Where does the information of DNA, proteins and glycanes come from? Not only that also the unity of them all. So it cant be just coincidence as the video is saying. There must be a higher being which just started it all.

I used to have a book called "Energy and the Evolution of Life" (before it was lost in a move) and...well, it was full of math that I couldn't understand...but it seemed to propose the idea that life and evolution could be understood as the flow of energy, storage of energy, and it's interplay with energy...not in a woo-woo way, but in a similar way than this very video. Wish I was smart and educated enough to understand the math in the book so I know what the hell the author was talking about.

@Chavez Harding I think we covered it, lol. Gnight, take care.
Chavez Harding
@Dankman9 Yes it did. Thanks for clearing up the arguments made for me. If you want we can continue this tomorrow. My bed is calling me. Or we can just agree to disagree. The only similarity I can see is that the overall equation looks like a combustion equation and they didn't even put that in their video.
Dankman9 Vor year
@Chavez Harding the original poster said "Every Kurzgesagt video: -Facts -Scares you -Then calms you down" So I was just pointing out that not everything in the video was factual. My main argument was based on the universe not having intent, we agree there. We also had the side argument that if you were treating the universe as if it had intent, whether or not it was trying to kill you, or life in general. I still argue that it's not. In that argument it doesn't matter how much of the universe is inhospitable, it confines you and life to the part that is, so it's clearly not trying to kill you, or life in general. The total amount of planets or space that won't support life is irrelevant because the universe is not subjecting you to those places, it's protecting you from them. There really shouldn't be any argument with those points either. Logic is also on my side here. The final part of the argument, entropy. This part of the argument also assumes the universe has intent. I think this is your best argument but I still don't think it makes sense. No matter what the universe does, anything that is alive will die. You can't really give the universe credit for trying to kill you if it's just letting you live your life. Also giving the universe credit for entropy as a weapon to kill you or life in general, seems like a huge stretch that you haven't supported. I don't think that makes sense. And even if you blame it for killing individuals, those deaths support more life. The circle of life continues. Eventually the universe may not support life at all, but that I think is a bit outside the scope of our argument and we don't really know for sure. I hope that cleared things up a bit more. Ok on to respiration, that's right you mentioned that before. I don't remember what he said in the video exactly but I think I would agree that's non factual. There are similarities but combustion doesn't seem like the most accurate way to describe it.
Chavez Harding
@Dankman9 Ah I see now what you're saying. You could argue that. The universe as itself doesn't have will. I typed "trying" out of habit. Really we're only arguing personification here. You arguments threw me for a loop. I thought you were arguing that the universe is hostile toward life. I did not know that you were arguing whether the universe has "intent" or not. To be honest I still think the statement is true although not literal. Sure the universe literally speaking does not want anything. Physics just follows a predictable path and that path happens to be against life. Hence if the universe was a person it would definitely be trying to kill you. That's the point of personification. Although it should not be in a video that's meant to be expository which is where the confusion is coming from. There aren't supposed to be any figures of speech. Anyway I still think the complaint wasn't really warranted? It was just pedantic nothing more? I'm sure people get what the narrator was saying. But you were right I have not been listening I was doing too many things at once. Still don't get why you brought up life on earth though. Even though life thrives on earth it will succumb to entropy. Reproduction counteracts this but it can't last forever. Anyway the next non factual statement was describing respiration as a "combustion reaction". I don't agree. It works more like a battery.
Dankman9 Vor year
@Chavez Harding - "it is trying to kill us anthropmising it or not." That is what you said. At this point I'm not sure you are even reading my statements in their entirety. Saying the universe is "trying" to do anything, is anthropomorphizing the universe. Without doing that, no matter what you are arguing about physics, or the inhospitality of most of the universe, the universe doesn't "want" anything, it isn't "trying" anything. Living things die eventually no matter what the universe does, that doesn't support the argument that the universe is trying to kill you. I think you are also conflating the arguments. One living thing dying does nothing to disprove that life in general thrives on earth. If all you think I've been doing is yelling fallacy you haven't been paying attention. And yes several of your comments have made it seem like you do actually agree that the statement "the universe wants you dead" is not a factual statement. Including your statement "that is definitely not a factual statement". Anyway, I've thoroughly explained why that statement isn't true. Let's move on to the next non factual statement. I'm done explaining this one. Cheers.
