The problem of how life came into existence remains a major challenge in biology. In this lecture I shall develop an explanation for the existence of ordinary life based upon the hypothesis that a form of life, not dependent on matter, existed prior to the big bang, evolving ideas and their applications in a similar way to the way that human societies do. Universes, and the kind of life with which we are familiar, are viewed as outcomes of that technology. This hypothesised extended mentality may clarify a number of other issues, for example the role of the observer in quantum mechanics, and human capacities that are hard to account for purely in terms of brain functioning.
