Water represents information.
Life is active information.
When you look at the ocean of stars we exist in, consider that wherever there is light, there is life.
The ability to create light is the standard of intelligence.
The universe is an actualizing information network--the project of agency.
I dreamed of swimming incorporeal in space with a friend, gathering flows of matter into rotating spheres. The incorporeal beings exist at a 1:1 scale with the largest structures in the universe; human life happens in a relative instant at a fraction of the scale.
Black holes are used like microscopes to slow the perception of time from the speed of light at any scale, and they function as portals to corporeal existence. I have dreamed several times of the brief, sublime voyage through time and scale dilation that is focusing an actionable location.
The universe is the mastery of information--the definition of creation. It is artificial in the best sense of the word, like a symphony.
At the machine level, the universe is a quantized matter-antimatter reactor running an actualization. We, of course, are micro cosmos.
