Nameless Wrote:There is already a thread that asks for clarity about what an Energy Being is, but I want to ask more than that. Where do they come from, how are the born/formed, did they evolve, do they exist in a parallel reality, or are they strictly formed of mystical energies?
All of the above, depending on the specific being.
Quote:What are Energy based lifeforms, how did they evolve (did they evolve), and if they are energy based does this imply that they are non-cellular organisms and thereby do not fit into the categorization of life by human definition?
Sure. If "life" is defined in terms of physical, carbon based entities then it doesn't apply to anything especially different.
Quote:For example, let us take the hypothetical example of a photon based life form. How would the photons communicate, bond to create a more complex or cohesive structure, what fuel would the entity process to sustain itself and how (or would it need too?) and where would the intelligence of this entity be located if it has no organs or cells? Or can the laws of our physical universe not be applied because Energy Beings come from alternate dimensions?
I am yet to meet any energy beings who claim to be made of photons, wind, radiation, or whatever. "Energy" is generally used not in the scientific sense, but in the sense of ki/chi/psi/whatever. I don't really see any relationship between the two other than the name and applying rules and information about one to the other doesn't strike me as very helpful.
Quote:Or, assuming that Energy Beings are in fact constructed from a more mystical or spiritual source of energy that is not so easily defined, or associated with the scientific definition of energy, how would such an entity come into being? Coalesce, merge, spontaneously appear?
All of the above. "My kind of shadows" tend to form by coalescing, but I couldn't say about anything else.
Quote:Is there a single type of formation that all Energy Beings share or is each type of Energy Being unique, and if so any ideas about why?
I see no reason whatsoever why all energy beings would share a single type of formation.
