You cannot be „right“/on solild-solid ground about life. Whether life exists as such (ontologically)–as a closed whole or an open (in changing forms) whole. Or, which is to me currently as plausible/probable/potential etc., it only exists secondarily. For example as the various subjective interpretive projections and summarisations of the subjective consciousnesses that deal with the singular existent things and phenomena of life. Or, it exists, also secondarily, as the sounding and resounding (‚the interpretation‘) of all singular/existing-as-such things and phenomena, with or without consciousness. As an orchestra, which could play this way or that way or any other potentially possible way – contingency – and sounds and resounds differently in all different constellations and to all different perceivers and interpreters.
