Do we matter in the cosmos?

Although Carl Sagan said to them almost before a century, that “We are a way for the Universe to know itself”, they don’t know it, they don’t understand it, they write a ‘scientific’ papers about our insignificance and missing sense of life:

I wrote before some 20 years (in Sense and Values):

Our life has deep and cosmic meaning: latest observations and SETI data say that possibly we are the only life form in our Universe. The only complex life form in our galaxy and in our Universe, the only Universe’s matter attempt to get aware of itself. This creates grand significance and responsibility for us: we are the only bearers of conscious matter and we are responsible for preserving and further development of this life form. We are the only form who can and will (must) transfer biological Homo sapiens to another more appropriate and more stable silicon or carbon environment.
This is great and holy challenge, possibility and responsibility. No bigger one is possible. If we will manage to pass the contemporary societies problems bottleneck, we, humans, will live forever. We will spread ourselves in a Universe and we will start manage the cosmological processes – create appropriate conditions for conscious matter limitless survival, create other universes. In short, Universe will get conscious and alive.  Imants Vilks
