The Cosmos and Consciousness
Panpsychism – The Universe may be capable of consciousness.
A new scientific concept has recently come to light, which scientists are calling
“panpsychism.” Panpsychism says that the universe could be capable of consciousness,
which could change everything.
For quite some time, scientists have been working to understand the universe,
where it came from, and why we are here. However, they have often come up short
until now. The scientist responsible for such a notion is Gregory Matloff, and
his ideas are shocking, to say the least.
According to Matloff, a physicist at New York City College of Technology, in his
recently published paper, humans could be like the rest of the universe, in substance
and in spirit. Futurism reported that a “proto-consciousness field” could extend
throughout all space. Basically, in laymens terms, the entire cosmos could be
Another supporter of panpsychism is Christof Koch of the Allen Institute for Brain
Science. He says that biological organisms are conscious because when they approach
a new situation, they are able to change their behavior in order to thwart a bad
situation. Due to this view, he is trying to see if he can measure the level of
consciousness a being displays.
In order to accomplish this, he will be running a number of experiments, including
one that includes wiring the brains of two mice together to see if the information
will flow between the two like a fused, integrated system would.
“The only dominant theory we have of consciousness says that it is associated with
complexity – with a system’s ability to act upon its own state and determine its
own fate,” Koch argues. “Theory states that it could go down to very simple systems.
In principle, some purely physical systems that are not biological or organic may
also be conscious.”
As it stands, panpsychism is just in the experimental phase. However, if scientists
are able to prove their theory, it could shake the world of science to its core.
What do you think, is the universe conscious?
Are we apart of one Universe within an Omniverse? Science is talking about the theory that our universe is apart of many universes in one large Omniverse. There could be infinite universes in this Ominverse. As the above graphic shows, we are one of those bright dots in that large expansive Omniverse. Its hard to get your head around how large these spaces are. Our human mind can not understand the complexity and magic of the universe and how it operates. In metaphysical studies, some people believe we belong to this universe constructed of light. Is this universe, the operating factor that keeps this light construct together is love. Love being the energy of creation.
If we can imagine that all the other universes are made of different or similar properties, then we could imagine life being of something very different to us. Can we understand this? What we may be talking about is a physics construct that is so different to light can we could not possibly understand it within our light universe.
However, consciousness is eternal and exists outside of time and space. So could every single person in this universe exist in these other universes as something we can not understand? Yes it’s possible. What is above is so below. The microcosm and the macrocosm is very much how we can define the nature of infinity. That life goes on forever in all directions. If this is so then we may exist on a soul level, in many large and small worlds from the atom to a galaxy to a complete universe. The fact that life is infinite would suggest that every single soul is a universe, a galaxy or a planet to a tree or an animal.
Then we can visit the subject of all the dimensions in our light universe. There are eleven dimensional vibrational spaces existing in our own universe. As we journey up to the eleventh dimension, energy begins to vibrate faster where materialism ceases to exist. Mainstream science has managed to prove of this fact over the many years of research. As you fall down the dimensions into the third dimension, consciousness begins to manifest its essence into atomic form. In the atomic structure, the true essence of our spirit in the higher dimensions holds the atomic structures together for life to flourish using sound and vibration to manifest into material form.
If we can imagine that we are a universe or a galaxy, try to imagine being a lotus flower. With every leaf being a star system swirling within a galaxy. The very nature of how our galaxies move in a circular motion is a very consistent phenomena that occurs in nature. This energy is constant in life throughout the universe creating an energy flow that creates a condition for life to sustain its own lifeforce to maintain and sustain life.
The Nature of life in our universe is fractal. As life moves through a galaxy, consciousness may be that galaxy where it fractals out into a particular star system, then fractals into a solar system into a sun, then fractals into a planet and then may even fractal into a being like ourselves. This fractal can also go the other way and that is from at galaxy back outside of this universe and enter another universe in the Omniverse. The mystery of this is that if we do enter other universe to have experiences to grow and evolve, what kind of universe are we experiencing and what kind of life would we be living? Is it of light construct like our universe? Is it something completely different that we could not possibly grasp? My guess is yes. It’s something so wonderful and inspiring that if there was anything that could understand an alternate reality, it would be our consciousness. As it could travel outside of time easily.
Consciousness is the mechanics of all that is alive in this universe. Without it, there would be no life that could experience itself as being alive.
