9. We are the most intelligent conscious species that we know of in the universe.

From my perspective, that puts a burden on us to try to survive as a species. I try to imagine the universe without conscious intelligence. It might just as well not exist. It is conceivable that an intelligent agent could change the fate of the universe and allow it to persist, if not forever, beyond the time when it would naturally collapse. We could be ancestors to such an intelligence.
