THE ALL is SPIRIT! But what is Spirit? This question cannot be answered, for the reason that its definition is practically that of THE ALL, which cannot be explained or defined. Spirit is simply a name that men give to the highest conception of Infinite Living Mind — it means "the Real Essence" — it means Living Mind, as much superior to Life and Mind as we know them, as the latter are superior to mechanical Energy and Matter. Spirit transcends our understanding, and we use the term merely that we may think or speak of THE ALL. For the purposes of thought and understanding, we are justified in thinking of Spirit as Infinite Living Mind, at the same time acknowledging that we cannot fully understand it. We must either do this or stop thinking of the matter at all.

Hi, OP! I've been recently meditating a lot more so, engaging myself into higher consciousnesses (or trying to), and the experiences I've had were literally, out of this world. It's amazing and confusing at the same time, but I definitely think your intuition is on to something here! It's almost as if there's this whole other function of our minds that we've never been told or taught how to use....
What if... NOW JUST WHAT IF... This higher being... is all of us. All of our spirits, minds, make up this one entity, thus creates our reality through collective consciousnesses? The whole world, the good, and the bad, all of our consciousnesses create this world... I don't know, just wanted to share a thought! I'm new to this sight, so I'm still getting the etiquette down.

What if we are this "higher being"? The double-slit experiment implies that we as observers have a very profound effect on the reality we perceive. What if our vision is the projection and what's within us is the projector? We are both the projector and projected at the same time.
