I could post this in a couple of different forums, but I suppose it can go in here. It's certainly a good topic for a FS mystery!
@courtney Brown... you've made this claim numerous times, and quite emphatically... on the most recent video of Information Control, this was again stressed.
You are a scientist - so, I have to ask you, what research has been done to disprove the theory that an IS-BE is indestructible? What evidence is there to suggest such a theory has merit?
You posed a couple of questions in the recent video - if an IS-BE has been around since the time of the dinosaurs, then doesn't it show it can't be destroyed?
Well, no! This planet has been around since long before the dinosaurs, and it'll get wiped from the universe when our sun finally explodes.
Stars that have been around since not long after the Big Bang have lasted billions of years - and yet they also finally succumb to time and die off (dramatically).
Obviously, we can start getting into philosophical debate about the reassembly of individual parts making up the whole - and whether it's the same entity (this is a pretty standard epistemological argument that's dated back a few thousand years - this time around). And that, in itself, would mean having a HUGE discussion on what an IS-BE (or any entity) actually is... in order to determine whether a destroyed IS-BE is actually the same as pre-destroyed IS-BE...
I, personally (and as per my beliefs and opinions), certainly do accept that it is very difficult to do. And not something that our technology (and quite possibly not any technology by any other race in this universe... I think) would be able to achieve.
There's a very famous axiom in science - lack of evidence is not proof against.
So, does anyone have anything that could be considered 'evidence' (let alone 'proof') that an IS-BE cannot be destroyed?
