    Neither sentience nor logic were supposed to emerge from the most primative form of reality. In other words it is not something or nothing, virtually patternless. Yet something was born out of it, and followed that many other things, and ultimately us.

    We're all a mistake.
    But it's nice being conscious isn't it?

    if life is an error, what error code it gives?
    and why aren't you debugging it???

    The error is "multiplication".
    They're trying to debug it but they can't figure out the biological programming of all of our genes.

    If it is an error then that would imply some kind of intent. What makes you sure there was any intent.

    While how do you exactly have an error code when there is no logic? (Cause it really is more of perspective)
    The thing is that why would sentient being emerge from an improper environment>

    Life have self-intent of keep going and potentially reproduction. There is nothing to start the first one, which is why it is an error.

    For it to be an error then there would have to have been some intended design for everything. If there is no design then it can not be an error, just a thing which happened. If it is an error then it would have to be an unintended consequence of a design and that is a big leap to make from where I sit.

    Also there is plenty, though there could always be more, on early life/life arising from the goop. Have a look for abiogenesis.

    I think by "error" people mean "accident".

    Maybe English isn't someone first language (op) so I'm assuming "error" means accident.

    My bad. Accident would be a much better term.

    Well you need to be fast. @VinsCool perhaps speaks the truth. I am one of 'unintended results', or all of us are.

    Dammit, there was a song that had a quote in it that was something like "life is the unnatural state of being" or something like that. I think it was a psytrance song, but I can't remember who it's by or what it's called, but give me a few minutes and I'll find it.
