The meaning of life.
Oneism, A philosophy by David Croston. In three parts. (New member)
However strange or more like sci-fi this theory seems I set myself the task of coming up with something that fits all unexplained and paranormal aspects of life including the life after the death of a species and still could be based on science. To be proved correct, a new type of matter would have to be detected.
Once detected we would have a meaning to life itself.
It could well be stated I am putting forward a philosophy because I offer no proof, it is only a suggestion, but I have not come across any other view that ties so many things together.
I will show how all-living things, as we understand them to be alive, we included are not alive but are just a collection of chemicals to house a true living form. That the true living form of each species possibly lives for many years even joining other life forms of that species to guide the species development separate from the species.
Lets start off in saying that science now as probably found the secret of life in the DNA, but not a meaning of life. But have they really found the secret!
Early life forms would have been very basic. We say early life, but what part is alive? What is the point, even if these sugars, carbons and other substances could be classed as alive, if it will die. Why does anything live and die? People give many answers, to pass on our genes etc.
But what if it was not alive in the first place!
What if we have it all wrong, that animals and plants are not really alive, ourselves included.
I put forward; that we are still unable to see, touch or examine the real life form. What if the real life form just uses a cell. Then, collectively the many true life forms of many cells make up the plant or animal.
A cell, either plant or animal is just a collection of chemicals.
Science is still trying to figure what role some of the parts of a cell play.
One bit really interests me. Junk is the name that was given to many sections of the DNA because it did not seem to do anything. I think it could have a lot to do with the real life form if that life form was of a new type of matter. I put forward there is a living, as yet undetected life force/energy that runs the cell controlling the DNA to make RNA, RNA to make proteins, etc, etc. In other words this unseen life form is the true living entity that builds the cell and maintains it just like we could build and maintain a car. We give motion to the car, this true life form gives motion to the cell.

The meaning of life.
Oneism, A philosophy by David Croston.
This unseen life form may in the beginning have been very simple in its makeup. Made of matter or energy still to be detected it could at first have been a simple unit that made a yes or no decision. This computer I am typing this on works with just many ones and zeros. This unit, this small decision making force could well be made of particles much smaller than the atom or from matter we are unable to detect. If this as yet undetected life form does exist it would be the cells true life form. For the philosophy I shall give it that name, abbreviating it to TLF.
Being a different type of matter it could behave in ways we are not familiar with. It would probably reside in the nucleus; it may be able to move around the cell, even move outside. It could live for many years. It might never die. It may need this home of proteins and sugars etc to extract something to enable this long life.
I will try to show as the theory expands that a long life span of a TLF if it was working together with other TLFs to build in size, development and intelligence will point to a meaning to life.
With single celled species in the past or present, the TLF, this small, albeit not very bright, decision-making force could well influence the actions of the cell.
A cell viewed that was moving to a food source would look to be alive as we at present understand, but it would move in just the same way if it was controlled by a life form we are unable to detect.
One TLF may share information with another TLF if it could leave the cell housing. It could well be connected slightly to the cell while outside to keep essential processes going. The cell would not be as active while a TLF was outside. Many present simple celled forms can be observed touching together and staying together for no obvious reason. It may also leave the cell to find food the cell requires. It could well be the TLF developed the cell to offer it some protection from things like radiation or chemicals in addition to abstracting some substances the TLF needs.
The earliest TLF may have used a simple strand like RNA to attract the nutrients it needed to progress. However way this early TLF developed, lets suppose it has advanced, making a few more decisions for instance and could now make a simple single cell type.
These cells do seem to live forever, as we understand living forever because each one would divide to make two new ones. This could well have taken place due to the TLF dividing once it had absorbed enough of the things it needed. As the TLF divided it would manage the splitting of the basic structures of the cell. Even though the cell and the TLF keeps splitting all the time the TLF is developing for its many years of life. After a while many of these early single cells would be adrift in the early waters of the Earth. Many cells would be damaged from time to time due to being in a damaging environment. We would say the cell had died. With this theory the cells building blocks are destroyed but what of the TLF.
As I have put forward, if the TLF is made from a different type of matter it might find radiation and some chemicals cause it some problems but on the whole could be resilient to harm.
The original resilient TLFs may well have arrived at the early Earth by a meteorite.
At the time of the destruction of the cell the development of the TLF would decide what it does next.
If not fully developed it may have the ability to induce another cell to take it in. The other cell may find this beneficial as will be seen later. This will be an important event as the idea progresses.
Being made up of this as yet undetected refined matter it may well detect another cell.
If a TLF has fully developed in a cell it may leave it, the TLF no longer needing it will separate breaking the thread at the same time. The cell now will have died, as we understand it.
It could now gather with other developed TLFs.
If TLFs are slightly effected by something like radiation they may well gather into the best shape offering protection. This would be a sphere with the TLFs moving, taking turns at the spheres extremities. This does not mean they could at times make other shapes. Throughout the oceans of the early Earth many spheres of TLFs would be forming from this species of cell. Some spheres joining with other spheres to make larger spheres.
These spheres of TLFs drifting amongst cells housing developing TLFs may well interact with them. All the TLFs in a sphere may pool their decision-making abilities. It could be they could help improve a cell. It is thought that a species may change through mutation from radiation. I myself go along with that, but as well as radiation this collective of TLFs may bring about a change.
Where one cell with its own TLF included another developing TLF as suggested earlier, it may find being in the form of a two celled species benefits it. In the process of this the two TLFs could help control the split but this time keep the two cells combined. It would now be a two-celled organism containing two TLFs, one in each cell.
More likely the TLFs are able to split along with the cell. The less developed TLF after splitting could look after the welfare of the two cells, one TLF in each cell. The more advanced TLF after splitting could fuse bringing into existence a new type of TLF, that would guide the new double celled species. It would have greater decision making combinations.
Either of these two methods could lead easily to organisms with many cells.

The meaning of life.
Oneism, A philosophy by David Croston.
These new two-celled forms would develop and create their own spheres. Again these spheres as they move around these early oceans may meet up and merge to create larger spheres.
The purpose of all the spheres as I have already put forward is to look after the cell forms.
What could happen next is the merging of a sphere from the single cell form and a sphere from the new double celled form. This would be a new type of sphere made up of two types of TLFs.
This living sphere with improved decision making abilities and with more understanding of the two cell forms could well bring about other celled forms. As time passed many different forms would be around all with their developing TLFs, all bringing about spheres of TLFs to guide them. Some of these could on encountering the sphere that was made up of two types merge with it. Some would merge with others. With many spheres merging in different variations we would end up with main spheres that contained many TLFs from all species that would help to guide all future species.
Then would come the first organism that would consume other smaller celled forms. Would it be in the TLFs interest to bring this about? If a large sphere of several types of TLFs could make many decisions it may well drift in this direction. The main thing is to advance the development of the TLFs. Also with an abundance of these early celled organisms it would be the best way for a larger organism to feed. As these TLFs may have a long life span and probably very resilient, when an organism consumes a small single cell, the single cells TLF may just pass from the large organism.
The larger organism may even take the TLF on board.
A TLF adrift without the housing of the cell may suffer no harm.
The cells could be just a means to feed the developing TLF.
However resilient a TLF is, this move to species that consume others would be in the interest for the TLFs advancement.
Then arrived species of life on land. The spheres could have played a part in this. Natural barriers might not restrain these spheres made up of mature TLFs, made of matter we are unable to detect. They could be made up of such a refined matter as to drift through water, air or solids.
The spheres could well have helped the first plants and animals develop on the shores of these early oceans.
With simple forms with a few cells they could all have two TLFs as mentioned before residing in them separate to the TLFs in each cell to help guide.
With a more advanced animal that requires some cells to die, as we understand the death of the cell, such as skin cells, what would happen to the TLF? The true life form (TLF) could as the first cell became damaged, pass to and join the two guiding decision-making TLFs. As the animal grew many TLFs would join this decision-making centre.
Then would come a species with the need for more specialised cells, brain cells and nerve cells. Each one of these would still contain a TLF. All these TLFs would keep in touch with the decision-making centre made up of many TLFs. The size of this centre of TLFs and position in the brain I can only guess at. As with a single cell this centre may not be fixed to any position and could drift outside when the species is sleeping (astral projection).
Most parts of our bodies are replaced due to cells dying but we still feel we are the same person. This would well be the case if the real life form was made up of TLFs.
A species that mates to produce offspring would bring together two TLFs. When the male’s reproductive cell with its TLF enters the female’s productive cell with its TLF the outcome is the same as the earlier two celled species. On the chemical side the female cell is quite different to other cells having only half the DNA to the rest of the cells making up that female. The male reproductive cell is the same carrying half the DNA. They merge and become a new cell, the start of a new being. The two TLFs could now split at the same time as the cell splits leaving two TLFs to look after the two new cells and two to act as the new guiding, decision-making centre.
Today there are millions of species on Earth. A species with a large population spread out over most of the Earth could have brought about many spheres, all made up from this species TLFs. Another one near extinction with a few hundred in one area may only have one small sphere to guide it. When the population of this species was healthy in size it would have had many spheres, these now would have merged with spheres of other species. Some of these large spheres will contain TLFs of many species. It could be that for many years one main guiding sphere as guided all.
If we could see true life forms and the spheres or shapes they make it would be an amazing sight.
Many people claim to see orbs floating.
Could it be that true TLFs are the real living things on this Earth.
There could be some variations of how the TLFs would split and merge. There could also be variations in their resilience, life span and intelligence. If TLFs depend on contact with other TLFs for the development of all TLFs it becomes clear why touch is important to many species. This may explain why someone may have green fingers, or good with animals, even laying on of hands to help bring about a cure. TLFs may not all work together. Some spheres may not all work together. Organisms that bring about disease could have come about by a rogue strain of TLFs. But if something similar to what I have put forward is found it would give a meaning to life.
It would explain many things that science as no answer for.
Peoples accounts that they believed they had separated from their body. Induced separation is known as astral projection and many people have said how real it is, not a dream. Many report seeing a cord or thread connecting them to their physical bodies. People who have lost a digit or limb say it feels that it is still there, a phantom. The TLFs that resided in all the cells of that limb, being part of the collective human may stay fixed in the space the limb took for a while instead of moving to the decision-making centre in the brain.
If this or similar is proved one day to be correct we would be wise to be very careful of the way we act in regard to all forms of TLFs.
We have brought about the extinction of so many species. The main guiding sphere could be effected.
When one carnivorous species kills another for food that still helps the TLF development, but if we needlessly kill, the TLFs making up that species may not develop as planned.
If it is proved correct, all forms of life are important and none should be destroyed in such a mindless way.
If TLFs live for a long time or even keep developing for eternity then when through illness, accident or when the body is worn out all our TLFs would move to that guiding centre and merge taking up a new form that would drift free. In time it would encounter a sphere of human true life forms. Some of these as they develop may be allowed to join a sphere of many species and after even more development join the overall guiding sphere. This overall guiding sphere made up of TLFs from every species that as ever lived, would have great wisdom.
How easy the development of this main sphere could be effected if in our stupidity we remove too many species.
Many true life forms would make up the main controlling guiding sphere. A sphere that would be aware of all life on Earth.
