Glossary of Terms


A

   ABSOLUTE:

ACCIDENTAL PANSPERMIA: Life in the form of bacteria is transported inside of meteorites or asteroids.

AFTERLIFE: Life after death.

AFTERDICY: Particular solution to the problem of differences between concepts of Immortality for various religions.

   AGEING:    AGNOSTICISM:

ALIENS: Natural living organisms which resemble humans, living in the other planet or galaxy, in other dimensions or in a parallel universe.

ANIMALS OR PLANTS PER SE: Animals and plants which are not reincarnated humans. They are not reborn after death. At least 99.999% of all living creatures are animals or plants per se. This is due to the large number of primitive life forms, like bacteria, algae, etc.

ANTHROPOMORPHIC FORCES: There are two types of anthropomorphic forces. The first is supernatural which is known by popular name 'God(s)'. The second form is natural, known by popular name of 'Aliens' or 'Humans of Future'.

ARISTOTELEAN ASTRONOMY: Ptolemaic system which assumes that stars are attached to spheres centred and rotating around the earth. This was most natural explanation of star movements available in antiquity.

   ATHEIST, ATHEISM:
B

BIG BANG: Cosmological theory which says that the universe was created as a tiny dot which started to expand rapidly. According to science, that event occurred about 14 billion years ago. The Big Bang theory does not explain what or who caused universe creation. It could be natural event, or it could be caused by Supernatural Forces like God(s). It could as well be created by natural anthropomorphic forces known as Aliens living in parallel universe.

   BIOLOGICAL:

BODY REPAIRS: Curing deceases and replacing the old failing organs by new ones.

   BRAIN:
C

CESSATION OF AGEING: Condition inside of biological organism where cells stop ageing.

CHEMICAL EVOLUTION: Spontaneous processes of transforming inorganic elements of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, and others into the simplest microorganisms, like single cell bacterium.

   CLONING, CLONED:

CMI: The abbreviation for 'Complete Model of Immortality'.

COMPUTER MODEL OF FINAL IMMORTALITY: The way the resurrected body works, modelled upon computers, but not restricted to them. In Final World this software might work in biological or spiritual hardware, but it is described as it is in present day computers, because it is the only hardware of current times where software works (runs).

   COMPUTERIZED:

COPERNICAN PRINCIPLE: Earth is not in a central, specially favoured position in the universe, and humans are not privileged observers of the universe.

COSMOLOGICAL PRINCIPLE: Properties of the universe are the same for all observers, and the universe is homogenous when it is viewed on a sufficiently large scale.

COURT TRUTH: Type of truth which is frequently dealt with in criminal courts. It relies upon establishing whether or not a suspect behaved or did not behave in a certain way. Courts establish the truth by examining the testimony of the accused, listening to witnesses, watching video or audio recording, reading written records, etc. The court truth is the most common type of correspondence truth. It establishes relation between statement describing certain events with actual events. If the statement directly matches the event, it is called true, or otherwise it is false.

CYBORGS: People cured by implanting nanorobots inside of body, or replacing failing parts of brain by computer-like parts.


D

   DATA:

DESIGNER CLONING: Replication of high achievers, like cloning high morality people, very intelligent, extinguished sportsmen, strong leaders, warriors, etc.

   DIGITAL, DIGITIZING:

DIRECTED PANSPERMIA: Microorganisms are carried out from planet to planet deliberately. The bacteria are either inside of unmanned spaceships, or planted deliberately on meteorites and asteroids.

DNA DEATH: Death of entire species caused by natural ageing of DNA.

   DOWNLOADING:
E

   ENGAGED:

CLONING EMBRYO: Making exact replica of human embryo.

   EVOLUTION, EVOLUTIONARY:

EXTENSIONS: Virtuals and Robots living in life Extension sector of computerized world.


F

   FINAL:    FORCES:
G

   GENERIC:
H

   HABITABLE:    HUMANS:    HYPOTHESIS:
I

INDIVIDUALIZED MENTAL DATA: Memories, feelings and conscious that are different for each biological person.

   IMMEDIATE(S),    IMMORTALITY:

IMPRINT HYPOTHESIS: The entire visible universe, including the earth, is contained inside of another bigger world, which is filled by substance called 'aether'. According to this hypothesis, the visible universe is moving all the time relative to the external world; the universe flies in aether of the external world. The next assumption is that the visible universe, while moving in aether, leaves behind an imprint of itself. This is a sort of modification, disfigurement of aether. Once aether is changed, the imprint remains the same forever. The imprint contains information about all people who have ever lived on the earth, with their feelings, consciousness, and events of lifetime. It forms Records of the Universe.

   MENTAL:    METHODOLOGY:    MIND:    MODEL:    MORTALITY:
N

   NATURAL:

NINAVISM: Version of Philosophy of Immortality.

NINAVIA: Generic type of Final World, created either by Humans of Future, or Aliens, or Supernatural Forces, or by Nature.


O

OCCAM'S RAZOR: Methodological principle used in science and philosophy. It says that when a particular phenomenon has two or more alternative theories, and all of them explain observations equally well, then it is better to choose the simplest version. This principle has many formulations.

OPPORTUNISTIC BREEDING: Periodic reproduction and decline of a large part of a population depending on favourable or unfavourable conditions


P

   PANSPERMIA:

PARTIAL IMMORTALITY: Life extension which does not allow death from natural causes, like sickness or ageing. The accidental irreversible death can occur, and partial Immortality cannot prevent this.

PASCAL WAGER: Methodological principle in theory of decisions which says that given two alternatives, one believing in Immortality, and the second rejecting it, deciding on first alternative is methodologically better because there is more to gain and less to loose. If one chooses the belief in Immortality, but it turns out to be incorrect later, no much harm will be done. However, if one chooses rejection of Immortality, but existence of it turns out true later, then one can suffer huge loss because in such a case the Immortal life might be denied to a disbeliever. The Pascal Wager says that belief in Immortality is safer than disbelief.

PERPETUALLY CLONED COUPLE: Heterosexual couple sterilizing themselves and producing two clones during lifetime: one exact copy of husband and the other the exact copy of wife. Children are not siblings and marry each other, cloning themselves the same way. This procedure is repeated for all descendants, ensuring genetic Immortality.

   PLANET:

POSTIMMORTALITY: Period of life on earth lasting from time when Final Immortality is created until the destruction of planet due to an expanding sun.

   PRINCIPLE:    PRESENT:

PTOLEMAIC THEORY: The earth is at the centre of solar system, with the sun and all planets rotating around it.


Q


R

   REALITY:

RECORDS OF THE UNIVERSE: The logical store of information about the earth and all people who ever lived there. It is created in a natural way and automatically. Records of the Universe is the particular implementation of Memories of the Universe. The information storage created that way contains the history of all people living on the earth, in the past and in the future, written down permanently in memory internal or external to the visible universe. One particular way in which Records of the Universe are created is called Imprinting.

REJUVENATION TECHNOLOGY: Transformation of an old adult organism into a newly born baby. It is type of Immortality technology.

   RELATIVE:    REPAIRS:    RETRANSMISSION:

ROBOTS: Living-like creatures with artificial computer-based brain, but walking and living in the world external to a computer.

ROBOTIC LIFE: Computerized life in which objects external to brain are outside the computer.


S

SCIENTIFIC DISBELIEVERS: People who quote lack of direct evidence of Immortality as a reason for disbelief.

SEMI-PERMANENT WORLD: Sleep-like condition. It lasts until times when Final Immortality is created.

SFs: The abbreviation for 'Supernatural Forces'.

SIMULATION HYPOTHESIS: Existing universe, including the entire environment, all individual people and their minds, is a computer simulation.
