Or purpose is to reproduce and carry our genetic material to the next generation. But why? Whats the ultimate goal for doing that? When does it stop? Does it ever stop?
here's a mind blowing theory.
I call this the petri dish model. Lets say you want to extract DNA from somewhere, for example a bacteriophage. Once you extract the DNA you can cut it and insert the fragments into a cloning vectors. The vectors can then be inserted into bacteria such as E. Coli via transformation. You can then put the bacteria in a petri dish. After incubation the bacteria will reproduce and multiply many times. What happens is that now you have a genomic library. Technically each E. coli bacteria should contain a piece of the DNA you had at the beginning. Every bacteria has a piece if foreign DNA that if put together makes up the DNA of the organism you extracted it from. isn't that amazing?
What if we humans are a such experiment? There are regions in our DNA called noncoding DNA. Those are regions of the DNA that aren't transcribed into proteins and are essentially not reactive. So what purpose do they have? We dont know. What we know is that they make up for about 20% of our genome. What if our purpose is to just be a vessel for the genomic material of a highly advanced civilisation? Humans have been known to make statues, so that the memory of the great leaders lives on. What if instead of architecture, a civilisation decided to make a "statue" that contains its entire biometric information in the form of us?
But of course thats something I just came up with lol so I haven't really given it much thought but it makes you think how little we are and how little we know about the life on our own planet.
I know thats what most of you did haha3
