Alien Life Is Everywhere – It Is Driving The Universe And Dark Matter, Astrophysicist Says

First Posted: Nov 19, 2016 03:10 AM EST

An astrophysicist has recently suggested that the universe still remains a mystery because the physical laws of the cosmos are not as they appear. Caleb Scharf, who is Columbia University's Director of Astrobiology, has put forward the theory that the reassembled intelligence of an alien civilization is driving our universe. Furthermore, the alien life is reportedly so advanced that it has put itself in the quantum realm that allows it to disappear into ordinary physics and be a part of what is considered the natural world.

According to Mail Online, Scharf has reportedly said that though the claim may seem radical, the existence of an intelligence that cannot be distinguished from the fabric of the universe can actually solve many of the cosmos' greatest mysteries. Furthermore, such a presence could also explain why humanity has still not found intelligent civilization outside our planet.

"Perhaps hyper-advanced life is not just external," Caleb Scharf has written in Nautilus. "Perhaps it is already all around, embedded in what we perceive to be physics itself, from the root behavior of particles and fields to the phenomena of complexity and emergence. In other words, life might not just be in the equations. It might be the equations."

The expert has also referred to the theory of 'singularity,' a future period when humanity will supposedly merge with technology. According to Scharf, intelligent machines could decode the intricate complexity of the living world that will allow a civilization to reassemble into new forms.

Furthermore, dark matter, which constitutes nearly 27 percent of the universe, could be one of the new forms. The astrophysicist suggests that dark matter could be a composite entity, which is actually the ending point that allows an intelligent civilization to escape from all dangers.

Scharf goes on to say that the presence of such intelligent life not only influences normal cosmic matter's behavior but could also explain the accelerated expansion of the universe 5 billion years ago because by then the earliest forms of life would have already experienced 8 billion years of evolutionary time.

At the root of the theory is the astrophysicist's belief that life has an inherent desire to escape a wipeout. Therefore, an advanced form of life may find a backup system to ensure its survival, and in the course distribute itself out across the quantum realm by storing its data in carriers that are spread throughout the cosmos, like photons.
