So what experiment am I talking about?
I'll use simple language so the really bright members of ILP can grasp it.
Lest I be accused of posting religious/spiritual comments in the philosophy forum let me say this ... philosophy is all about life ... as are the following comments.
1) I'm warming up to a comment Surreptitious posted 'somewhere' recently ... can't find it at the moment ... paraphrasing ...
"when humans become extinct ..."
2) God put Himself in form ... biosphere ... for two reasons
a)so He could see/perceive Himself.
b)to determine how long it would take for Himself to recognize Himself through the veil of form.
3) Seems both the above purposes are nearing completion ... ergo: extinction is the next logical step ... no?

I agree. Being itself is the the unknowable noumenon the "thing-in-itself".
