Wow, that was a good post. Star for you haha. But seriously do you believe in a soul? Like you said if nothing and everything is the same thing, wouldn't that mean there wouldn't be a soul?? Or, creator of the universe. Maybe this thought process is our soul?? How can there be evidence that my thoughts are outside my body?? There hasen't been. Surely they would of found some kind of energy coming out of your body or something around those lines. But they havent yet. This is what gets me.

What if our thoughts came from a collective human mind, that's connects all us individual cells. This Collective Consciousness (see Jung) is the pool from which we draw our individual thoughts and dreams. We are co-creators within this realm with our own species, then expanding out to plants, animals, bacteria, earth, the sun, yada yada.
This creates harmony, though most of the time, we don't see it as such.
Much like the coordination of our bodily functions, no one knows how it all fits together, but somehow a blood cell knows where to go? Is this blood cell conscious? Does it realize it's a part of a much bigger organism?
What if we are the thoughts of another being? As above, so below?....
