Consciousness is the Basis of Everything. This has always been my experience in life. Though I respect scientists and the scientific method I think they are barking up the wrong tree. For example, the Big Bang Theory, to me is like a bunch of kids going to a bomb crater and studying the hole and the residue without realizing that one or more beings actually did this somehow. For those of you who don't believe in God I'm not necessarily saying that "God" did this. I believe it is possible that one or more beings who are based say as some form of energy that either we know of or don't know yet or some type of plasma being that for example might live in a star or nebula may have created our galaxy, for example. What if, some type of energy plasma life form that fed on the conversion of matter to antimatter or the other direction from antimatter to matter, create Galaxies as a residue of their feeding?
If something like this is true then a type of consciousness resident in one or more beings caused Galaxies to happen and they just might be what is left after those beings got through turning dark matter into matter so they could feed on it.
In another article I was trying to convey an eastern philosophical and religious concept of Spontaneous Arisal from Voidness. I equated spontaneous arisal to what happens when one looks at another being and falls in love and in the course of things a child is created. Where did that love come from? It wasn't there a moment before? Also, where did that child come from? It didn't exist before the spontaneous arisal of those two people's love for one another.
When science chose to rule out consciousness because of offending religious people as to where all things came from they lost a major opportunity to study the cause of everything--Consciousness. Like I said, it doesn't have to be God or a god that caused everything or anything. However, to rule out the idea that conscious beings who don't breathe air and have to live on a planet somewhere created everything is very foolish to my way of thinking!
