I believe there's a chance we might unknowingly be in an interstellar war in which the first consciousness to spread itself throughout the universe will dictate how consciousness is experienced until the heat death of the universe. Thus, it's my duty as a human-derived consciousness to ensure that whatever survives this war is a consciousness compatible with our notions of justice so that future conscious descendants of our species may enjoy the same benefits (or more) than we currently have. This belief has several practical implications day-to-day for me; my utility function is to maximize the chance that human-derived consciousness survives long enough into the future (until the universe allows so).
