Awesome video asking the question, what are you? Are you your cells? You are made up of trillions of cells. Since your cells die and are replaced are you still you? If you donate an organ are you living inside someone else? What is DNA? If your cells die and are replaced are you just a snapshot in time right here, right now?

Awesome channel I highly recommend you explore all the videos. Perfect for ATS.

And if you watched the entire video and want to see the second part from the other channel.

I'm a mouse. I am better looking than a vole and not as chaotic as a squirrel

At the moment I feel like I am nothing.

Hopefully that will change soon.

You will learn you are way more than nothing, there are more cells in your body than they are stars in the galaxy. You may also not be alone, as there may be two consciousness within you.

What am I?

I does not exist, I is an illusion of separation there is only the self, god form, super intelligent mind, I am an imagination.

I am the totality of the mind, the universe, everything is me.

We are awareness in a human host.

When the body is destroyed by disease, old age, gun shots, whatever the damage is, our awareness goes back home to where we came before being born.

The body allows us to experience everything on this plain of existence. Other then that, we are internal energy of existence that never dies. After death of our bodies our energy transforms to something else.

I do not believe science will ever be able to solve what happened to the soul, or our awareness when the body dies.

However Religion such as Christianity talks about the soul moving on after death.

Thank you I love knowing that people think about these things I actually thought I was nuts that it's only me who asks those questions ("existential crisis" or I thought I am psychotic)

There is absolutely no denial that dna cells of organs have some type of memory (for example stories of eye donors people actually get the images of that person just absolutely fascinating thought) actually now you got me thinking with the 3D printing of organs and cloning maybe we are playing with something unnaturally artificial

My personal philosophy about what I am is : there is no I in I am (from dust we come to dust we return but I believe in something like your thoughts are universal and immortal and actually more physical or "alive" then material substance of universe kind of like you know the matrix like everyone puts it)

When you break through the veil you realize the body isn't real. It was never really you to begin with.

Individual cells have no consciousness, no will?

That is a big unfounded presumption.

(..and the documentary goes on to make a lot more.)

We are a conglomerate which includes 'mental' and 'physical' phenomena resulting in emergent properties.

I think I'm a squirrel. My brain is so scattered at times.

I am at this moment conscious awareness (subjective player) that is more or less aware of my higher self consciousness (soul) who have become more or less aware of information flow between the subjective player, my soul and everything else.

I do like normally the feeling you can feel from the soul collective that are mutualistic in behavior. My body is just a temporary avatar I am using.

I thought we were just poo factories.




Its the poo of the antelope, the poo of the giraffe
Which crawls up to the earth, and becomes the blades of grass
The grass is eaten by the cattle, which comes out the other end
To make poo for the humans, and start all over again.


But now, I have to think about how I am not the same poo factory I once was.

I agree.

If we look at Orch or theory part of consciousness is being manifested within a cell that can explain why one cell organisms can operate. They clearly have a purpose and will. It might not have the computing power that you can run a higher level awareness on but then from my point of view my own computing power is a bit to limiting my awareness so I kinda want a more advanced body.

You, I, everyone, plant, animal, fish, bug, microorganism and all unknown at this point are the culmination of this weird machine like process called the Universe. All time and space has led right to this point, Consciousness. After innumerable eons, the Universe developed into consciousness, so I can imagine life is just the first step into becoming the Universe.

We feel we are just part of the Universe, along for the ride.

Incorrect, we ARE the Universe! As above, so below. As within, so without.

The Ancients knew this and kept it secret, Hence the secret doctrines of today's "Secret Societies", which Sir Isaac Newton was affiliated with. Essentially combining scientific and spiritual philosophies into one life long journey of exploration into physical and the nonphysical.

Consciousness.

Well said Sir and that is pretty much what I think as well.

Let me try to answer:

I m a energy that holds trillions of cells, organisms, bacterias, molecules, atoms, bozons, electrons, viruses and other known and unknown things inside, outside and around on macrolevel and microlevel.
