    Jay Parker has described himself as a survivor of his Illuminati family upbringing. I doubt anyone does not know of Mark Passio. This is a conversation that goes deep!

    Thanks Delight. Interesting thread.

    I find the ideas of Bohm and Sheldrake fascinating.

    The Consciousness Matrix: A fundamental framework that evokes self-awareness, or, a holographic explanation of totality.

    It seems that normalizing the finite world requires the removal of the ether from our paradigms, as that is the infinite portion of reality and cannot be reconciled with our experiences while embodied in a temporary biological vehicle. Our experiences are temporary and so we are obsessed with time, and its polar opposite, space.

    Yet consciousness is not bound by either. There is no time or space component to consciousness. There is only self-reflection, the realization of existence, and incoming signals from exploratory sub-components of that awareness. Time and space are inventions, ideas, impressions, designed to explain the imaginary and create the real. As such even our realities are merely subjectified observations of existential origins. Only after the process of sense-making does, or even can, the objective world appear.

    Science is about deciding which came first, the world around us or the world within us. To decide such a thing, it must be determined whether the universe is material at all, and has substance in and of itself, regardless of whether there is consciousness to observe it and flesh it out. Yet what is making this decision is the very thing that decision would eradicate.

    Can consciousness decide against itself?

    The problem seems to arise from the problems caused by the two possible conditions of the cosmos: infinite or finite. Since the infinite involves contradiction and paradox, this condition cannot even be considered with seriousness. Yet a finite cosmos has its own conundrums. So, both conditions are impossible, from a materialistic point of view. The objective universe can be neither finite nor infinite and still satisfy all necessary logical conditions, if it is the fundamental ground of reality as science today would like it to be, and is convinced it is.

    But as the new understandings come online, and make headway against the prejudice of established scientific dogma (which by the way is an oxymoron), it is becoming evident that consciousness plays a far bigger role than merely an accidental curiosity of biological systems, which are themselves just side effects of a material universe.

    Maybe we short lived consciousnesses are the finite component of an infinite idea we call god.

    And maybe we can allow god the divine right of creation and rest easy in our little heads, that we are well taken care of and that anything we might wish or conceive of can be realized for this very reason.

    Nothing is left out of infinity, because it represents totality. All finite realms, whether real or imagined, are contained within eternity. Therefore, all versions of ourselves are as well.

    This understanding, if it is accurate, as some scientists like Bohm and Sheldrake contend, leads to infinite potential and many incredible possibilities.

    We have barely begun the journey of discovery, and contrary to what contemporary science might have us believe, we hardly know a thing yet about the true nature of reality. Let's not set our current understandings in stone - that makes them far too hard to demolish when better information and ideas come along - as they inevitably always will.
