Basically Universial Consciousness is the connectivity between people, on a subconscious level. Also the connectivity with man and other animals and nature itself.

The act or feeling of oneness with man and the world.
The reason I say universial is because I feel it really truly is UNVIERSIAL. Anything that is living, the act of knowing one is alive, is, and can be connected to this system of all living beings. In my mind every living creature is, in some small way connected to this universial concsiousness.

If you guys have seen the video on youtube or somewhere else caled "what the $@*! do we know' you'd be familar with the theory of Entanglement. Which states that somewhere, in some weird way, in reality [outside space, the plane that seperates the matter we see, through the eye of the observer] it states that maybe we really are still one, connected at some point.

Its a complicated thing to think about but you should probably look more into it if you find all that interesting, or confusing haha, and just ook at it and make it your own.

I've been talking about "Universal Consciousness" for years. It's the levels of consciousness above the "Collective and Personal" levels of conscious mind. In the highs of Universal consciousness is where the universal records are held.

I've just want to make sure we were all on the same page.

There's a few understandings of why the Universal Consciouness is opening up, based around the 2012 time line model, and also in the book of Urantia there's theoretical understandings.

I'd assume that the "opening" or reconnecting to the Universal Consciouness is a reastablishing of universal circuits, powering up, and in association to the "unrevealing" or "unvelting" of the connection to the Universal Father of All things.

[ Edit ] Wow! Everyone jumped in ahead of me to define universal consciousness. I think I like all these other definitions better than mine, but I will leave mine here for reference.

"Universal Consciousness" is the idea that there is a "global" consciousness to the Universe -- all human beings are conscious in an identical way. And perhaps, that is because we share a common consciousness, or perhaps the universe itself is conscious.

You may ask: how can the Universe possibly be conscious? It doesn't have a brain or anything! No nervous system whatsoever!

Yet consciousness appears to be something separate from the brain, possibly a physical property that is emergent in the universe in various ways. Consciousness appears to exist in time and not in space.

Perhaps together, we create a single conscious entity similar to the way that our individual cells (which may themselves be conscious for all we know) create us.

As you can see -- it is good fodder for debate and discussion!

Here is a link (one of many, including some suggested previously in this thread that look really cool.)

noosphere.princeton.edu...

I got this link after researching a previous post to this forum by Vanitas. See above. (Still haven't learned how to link to a particular post easily.) The above link is a great starting point -- the best IMO.

wait wait wait.
For consciousness to be a seperate entity, and not a part of the brain of the brain is a very abstract thought in my mind. And if it excists in time but not space.. explain that to me if you can.
Im not trying to bring you down, your post emobodies the exact reason why I started this very topic, not to spread my thoughts of feelings on the matter, as I'm sure I've probably too much at this point, truth is personal, I can spend my entire life spreading my views on life and change some people but it wouldnt get me anywhere in the long run.
I do believe I've been put onto this earth to change people, yes, I have kept people from commiting suicide, I've opened people's eyes, I've just been the helping friend who cares to listens to those high school druggies, drop outs, and chemical kids, I know I have an effect on people but spreading my views on life isn't why I'm here. I'm just here to help people and keep them on this world, because quite frankly, the people who I help.. it just isn't their time, and I see that.

Back on topic though, consciousness excisting in time..
Time itself is variable, yes, its based on relativity, for those who read Einstein's works, its based on your relative point in space and in time. But consciousness, which we can't put a physical face or being onto, excisting only in time and not in space makes sense in a totally nonsensical way, and I do like that. It's one of those 'this is so crazy it just might work' ideas, in my mind.

In what way do you visualize consciousness excisting though?

You read these words and your eyes change the input to electrical impulses that then flow to your brain to be percieved. However the "thinking" consciousness of the perception of these words are not a phyical but electircal impulse flowing around your brain. Your brain being made up of matter and at the core of all matter is energy.

Consciousness isn't a phyical thing. It's an energy thing.

All things that have energy, EVERYTHING, also has consciousness, of some type.



To be able to unite mentally with the consciousness of a tree, the sun, stars and etc is Universal Conscious thinking.

Everyone in the world has some form of personal consciousness, excluded the brain dead, and it is a flow of energy. Energy flows and when it unites with another person, group, the world of people, it is known as collective consciousness.

Collective consciousness is where we humans are all connected, along the lines yet still outside idealisims of socialology.


You read these words, and the voice in your head resites the words you are reading. That consciousness isn't a phyical maifastation, rather, it's energy and all energy is conscious on some level and all things are energy.

Alright, so, if everything has a consciousness on some level, then what is the definition of consciousness. Aside from energy, what would an atom know of consciousness?

Can anyone clearly define what you all are talking about when you use the term

"Universal Consciousness"?


A sound of light from above. Equal proportions of the mind, body and spirit to be heard inside and out.

Or simplified.

'The Spirit of ALL LIFE'.

Wow -- there are so many good definitions here, I am reluctant to clutter things up. But I injected this concept of consciousness existing in time and not in space, and I think I can defend that, as follows:

What above discussion deals with is actually a formal topic of philosophical discussion called the "mind / body problem", also know as "dualism".

See wikepedia's article for more info on dualism.

#

To summarize: Where does pain exists? How about humor? How about the color red? The answer -- these things exist in the brain if you are looking at someone else. But if you are looking within yourself, and you are the one actually feeling those sensations, your perspective changes. Can anyone but you see or feel them? No. They don't exist in space -- only in time.

Importantly -- someone else could actually be looking at the specific neurons firing, maybe with an EEG, and tell precisely you were in pain. But that observer wouldn't be feeling your pain. Only you would feel that pain. IT DOESN'T EXIST ANYWHERE BUT IN YOU!

I hope that makes sense.

I agree with this observation. lately, I've met more and more people, often even ones you would never suspect, reflect this Universal Consciousness.
More now than ever is the human race connected globally, further more spiritually ascending, as knowledge of such is more commonly obtained. Also, the 2012 theory, as it nears, may have to do with this.

Good question! I posted an answer on a very similar topic in another forum. See the topic "Do Plants Feel Pain?" in the "ATS Skunk Works" forum.

Do Plants Feel Pain?

Now here is something legitimately weird. I posted an answer to your above question around five hours before you asked it. Tell me that isn't a good example of Universal Consciousness, hmmm?

I made a post about this also because I think people are all becoming connected with their worries and curiousities and even ATS has these connections. People write the same posts about the same stuff. I have seen that other people have answers on another post like it's there to be discovered.

But they are unrelated and not current affairs of the times it's all different and too mixed to be a trend.

Unless we are being brainwashed to do so or unless we are becoming one in thought.

David Icke goes into this to about man being held captive in this realm.

Maybe we are all like God but our Sin made us seperate beings not as one collective so we lost the ability when man ate from the Tree of Knowlege in Gensis as described.
