What is the Collective Consciousness?
A man who lived alone in the woods would never perceive the phenomena of a growing collective consciousness. He doesn’t have access to an internet
and is immune from constant updates from friends and twitter followers. He cannot have real-time information on hand without the avenues to access
such information. His ‘consciousness’ cannot grow collectively as he isn’t in any way connected collectively via an internet or television. The
amount to which he is aware of his surroundings and situation grows on its own accord, un-collectively. One must be physically connected through any
medium to be considered part of a collective.
While I understand your point, and at surface level I'd agree. But I would also know that in agreement of your example that would only be an
Knowing what is, and what is, is only ever now.
Using the label or, identification of a collective consciousness (CC) helps some to wrap there head around the vague concept of that label.
Don't assume it is something only human, which seems to me an unconscious judgment of what is.
Is not an animal a life form? One could also argue that a plant might share another type of life form; albeit one that has an extremely slow speed of
If they are indeed life forms, then the possibility of those life forms also having the ability or access of "being" is probable, sounds sane to me so
far. Perhaps they too have not realized the unconscious higher intelligent interaction of being, this could be identified as "the law of nature"
animals and plants amongst any life form don't seem to get enough credit for their part in the interaction of "being". We have to open our minds to
the idea that any life form is also just as important as our own egotistical & narrow-minded consideration of ourselves. This moment is not just ours;
we share it with all life forms. That is what is, and not just some hippy smack talk
Be avid present and you will see it is all around you.
It would seem that there is no such entity as a collective consciousness permeating like mist throughout the masses—only a chatter about, and
relation to, a common subject or experience. The “collective consciousness” is the extent to which many people share an experience in common, and
this phenomena only receives this label if there is an ensuing discussion about the common experience. The 'collective consciousness' could be more
simply described as a common memory shared between many people.
I agree with this, it only becomes an "entity" or form, when it becomes a memory,
I tend to view CC in the form of an experience or experiences, and to be honest, it's got to show some realistic reflection within this realm of form
for me to consider it as something within the realm of probability or realness. To me the communication is visible via coincidences or chance events
that seem to be highly linked to something prior, skepticism is a nice train of analysis when experiencing these events, and to exercise honest avid
awareness of what is, not to judge or react to these noticeable events but to simply be aware of them happening daily, this witnessing of what is, in
real time, can be identified as intense joy, or happiness once you have honestly experienced this form of possible communication across each life
form, human or otherwise.
Life's a buzz; all you have to do is pay attention, right now.
