I'd have to go with the universe being intrinsically conscious with us being the universe experiencing itself.
If there is no life, the universe no longer exists. Just like with the double-slit experiment, if life (observation) is not present, there is nothing
concrete, only probability.
I'm under the impression that we as conscious life are both the creator and creation, we passively create the world around us simply through the act
of observation. This again is implied by the double-slit experiment.
I don't know about that...
"The universe being intrinsically conscious" = YES
"Us being the universe experiencing itself" = NO
"If there is no life, the universe no longer exists" = NO.
Here I think you concentrate too much on 'human life' and its associated consciousness. The "creator and created" concept reminds me too much of
religious concepts and the false notion that we assign to our own importance in the universe.
I sincerely believe that all of Nature and all of the workings of the Cosmos have their own intrinsic consciousness.
I believe that this INTELLIGENCE is formed by the energies of subatomic interactions; the very basic foundation of energy and matter in the Cosmos.
I cannot make it any clearer until I compile the result of my various contemplations and observations while walking in nature and asking questions
regarding its functions.
One of my most important breakthroughs was, in questioning how the stick insect knew that it took on the appearance of its surroundings, in order to
protect its life from predators? It's easier to understand how it ascertained how its surroundings looked, but not how it knew what it looked like to
an observer (predator), having imitated the twig (its chosen surroundings). So I asked myself, "can it see itself from outside of itself?"
We talk about how humans are the only ones who know how to 'self reflect'. How does the stick insect determine how it appears and how does it
accomplish that appearance in order to survive?
Does it 'self reflect', as we think only we can do, or is its 'inner wisdom' derived from the very atoms that form its 'being'?
Is there a fundamental 'substance' that is formed from the dynamics of its unique atomic energies, which communicates what color or form it should
take to make it unique for its survival?
I could go on and on, but, in the end, I can only conclude that there is an 'Intrinsic Intelligence' factor built into the very dynamics of the
subatomic matter/energy interaction that forms the foundation of everything in the Cosmos.
There is an intrinsic vibration to everything in the Cosmos and all that exists has its its own unique FREQUENCY that determines its place in the
universe. Yes, 'frequency', as in the colors that are produced by white light travelling through the 'splitter' that is a prism, or diamond, and
produce its unique version of a cosmic entity.
