So you're back to Wigner's theory that consciousness collapses the wave-function?  Which of course raises the question of whether it needs to be a consciousness with a PhD or will an undergraduate  or a jellyfish do?

The only conceivable cosmological implication for intelligent life is that it performs a cosmological version of the Wheeler Delayed Choice Experiment. Maybe a  huge ensemble, maybe infinite if the universe is infinite, number of measurements of cosmological parameters, say in particular the inflationary cosmological parameter, serves as a superselection of this value in a WDCE. This would involve some physics with respect to the relationship between Bayesian updates and the ergodic principle that are not understood now. We humans might just be one IGUS who makes this measurement and the mean of these measurements in a post update WDCE sense defines the parameters of the observable universe.
