I am interested in reading anything that tries to tackle scientific views on existence. There are plenty of great works that discuss human meaning and purpose. However, I am more interested in scientific hypothesis for all life (conscious and unconscious).
For example, I recently came across a view that the scientific concept of entropy (a property in physics) could explain why life exists. Life could be a property of the universe that is created as a natural process to reach entropy at a faster rate.
It could be interesting to also explore how current theories in physics are related to ethics and purpose. For example, one could argue that proof of a multi-verse could favor nihilism.
Any recommendations or insights would be appreciated.
