it's amazing that we as a species are capable of being this conscious of where and what we are.

I heard someone make an interesting point the other day:   
   
The universe isn't just the place where we live. We humans are a component of the universe--we are made by the universe and we help make up the universe. And we humans are self-aware. Therefore it stands to reason that the universe is self-aware.    
   
Humans are the universe aware of itself.   
   
Just let that thought soak in for a bit.

No, just no

Human behaviour is not consistent with rest of the universe.

From the CO2 in your coke can to the largest galaxies everything other than humans tries to stay in balance. The whole universe is like an equation that tries balance itself out with every possible way. Yet humans only draws resources and disrupts the balance around them just to be better than their current status.There are 2 possibilites; 1) Universe made a mistake by letting humans come to existance 2)Humans came from another plane of existance to fulfill another purpose. Either can be true.

Forget that last comment--it got away from me a bit.

All you need to know is the first law of thermodynamics--that all energy in the universe is conserved. Human actions (and the actions of all other life forms) converts energy into different forms (potential, chemical, electromagnetic, etc.) but it never adds or removes energy from the universe as a whole. Our existence and our actions are perfectly acceptable by the laws of physics.

here is an interesting note. when two particles come in contact they become quantumly entangled, anything that happens to one, happens to the other. the thing is, during the big bang, all of the particles were together, so everything is quantumly entangled

Err, that's not quite how quantum entanglement works. There's a lot more to it than simple contact.

A weird thought that I had was this..    
   
Humans are made up of a *********** inanimate objects (molecules, atoms, subatomic particles, etc.) that all come together to make a living being. What if all of the galaxies/ life/ etc. are the *********** inanimate objects that make up something EVEN MORE amazing than humans?

Not necessarily. A god or deity is usually used to define some sort of supernatural entity, as in something that exists outside the realm of physics and or what is natural. An organism that he is describing doesn't necessarily have to be a god- it is simply an organism greater than ourselves. An organism whose very nature, although not outside the realm of science, is so sheer and vast in size and scope that it boggles the human mind just to imagine such a creature or entity, let alone understand it. In the end, if we were to ever confront such a being, it would vastly alter our very perception and understanding of our universe and our place in it. It would be like meeting Cthulhu's version of Cthulhu.   
   
Some deep ****.

I kind of agree with him. I have a hard time believing that all of THIS was a one in a million random perfect equation of biology and chemistry. Maybe it was, I'm not saying it wasn't, but think of all the things that could have been different in the long line of everything that led up to us. I really believe there is a higher power (in my case, God), behind it all, but that's just my own belief.

There are about 50 billion planets in the milky way galaxy, 500 million of which are in the not-too-cold-not-too-warm range to support life. There are millions of galaxies in the universe, many of which are probably in the same situation. If .000001% of the planets that could support like do, there are still hundreds of thousands of planets with life. I believe alien life is a certainty at this point.

I heard some weird thing that even with all the other planets out there, its "statistically impossible" for a planet to replicate the vital conditions for life we have on earth.

But I think the people who found this are being too limited. After NASA discovered organisms that use arsenic in its DNA instead of phosphorous, the possibility of life on other planets seems too broad to deny.

it's even more certain now that we have evidence that organisms can survive in extremely harsh enviroments (ie. 400g's, no oxygen, dangerous chemicals, etc.)

Just think, there could be organisms like this that have been on space ships, there could be single cell organisms on voyager 1 adapting right now as we speak, voyager 1 could crash into a planet somewhere, and then over billions of years evolve into intelligent beings, or something similar.

that ,my friend, is the law of averages. even if something has a very small chance of happening, with enough tries is possible. There is an almost impossibly small chance of other life out there randomly happening, but given enough opportunities, its possible. Also, who's to say its life how we expect? we can only detect a percentage of light from the spectrum and can visibly see a percentage of that. there could be life right next to us all if we were only to detect the forms of energy they use

Well... that's the thing, ain't it?   
   
We are either crushingly alone, or there IS life... and it runs the gambit between the possible spectrems:   
   
It is cellular life, or unintellegent life and our technical abilities are the best in the universe   
   
The other life in the universe is just too far away, they being equal or lesser to our abilities to communicate, held back by the light barrier   
   
The other life does indeed exist, but it doesn't care about us, something Lovecraftian or something like that

But we as human do not care if other things care about us, we still study it. Of course it wont care about us, unless it is highly intellegent or selfaware life.

i think that it is more terrifying to be the only ones, because if something happens to earth, (which it eventually will) then all life in the universe is gone.
