- The Facts:The Living Universe – a documentary about consciousness and reality explores the idea of a conscious, living universe.
- Reflect On:Non-material science is making huge leaps, but is still largely ignored by mainstream academia. With some very significant results being published in this very large field, why do you think that is?
“Since the time of Plato, the human understanding of the universe has moved through two epoch-defining paradigms. These are the view of the universe as a great mind, moving into the view of the universe as a great machine. Today there are signs that the modern mind is moving towards an organismic view of the universe, apprehended as an evolving, self-generating, and ultimately living process.” (Video below)
Today, our understanding of quantum mechanics is furthering our knowledge about how consciousness interacts with physical material reality, and perhaps how we as individuals as well as a collective are constantly interacting with the universe. Is the universe a living organism? Does consciousness and life on our plant and perhaps others all participate in ‘co-creating’ the universe? Perhaps these are, for now, unanswerable questions, but it’s definitely mind-altering to explore, because from what we know now, most likely, the universe is a living organism. In fact, based on my research into quantum mechanics, parapsychology, neurobiology and consciousness, which are all intertwined, there is no doubt a connection between the universe, and all of it’s material and non material properties with the consciousness of everything in it. In fact, I believe all matter possess some factors of consciousness, and I do not believe that a physical biological being is only capable of possessing some type of conscious.
