  1. For a long time, viruses were considered such, but now the consensus is that they are considered alive.

    A potential candidate is an AI with a personality, if such a person is possible and will ever be created, it will be dead by biological standards, but as a person it will be alive. And it will hang like shit in an ice hole.

  2. The ancient Greek philosopher Plato formed the doctrine of the One. He did this, of course, not from scratch. If I understand correctly, Plato took the ideas of Parmenides as a basis, but in general such ideas have been around for a long time. Even in the Indian Upanishads it is said that enlightenment is freedom from pairs, i.e. from dichotomous revenge, when we divide everything into pairs-light/dark, bad/good, true/false, etc. Taoism is also about this, and in the Torah you can find something. Plato was the first (among Europeans, that's for sure) who properly understood this cart, wrote it down, and whose records have come down to us. The One is by definition indivisible. It is not a totality, not a whole, because the whole is made up of parts. It is timeless, out of space, but at the same time it is not something external to the universe, otherwise there would be a “universe/one”dichotomy. It has no beginning / middle/end, cannot be changed, cannot be damaged, or added to. No dichotomous concepts apply to the One. It is not bad, it is not good, it is not light, it is not dark, it is not alive, it is not dead.

  3. This is Schrodinger's cat .

    I understand that the author did not quite expect such an answer, but he fills in the conditions of the question . At the same time, the cat is both alive and dead . Although, to be honest, I don't really like this concept.
