If conscious energy does exist maybe it's somehow related to the dark matter and dark energy that allegedly binds the galaxies together.
Intelligent designed universe so to speak!

Actually this thread looks more like religion than science.
Lots of people also cannot get there head around these concepts due to religious ideologies instilled since birth.
Eventually the person will not be the same person. Who are they? Where has their 'consciousness' gone?
The topic of the thread is: "Cybernetics tells us Conscious Energy must exist"
I suggest you go back and look again considering i have provided links to the subject matter that I thought was pertinent to the OPs thread. I have no idea as to their credibility all the same however the subject matter is rather cutting edge.
When Neuroscientist look at the brain, they make huge assumptions. They will say because there's activity in a part of the brain when a specific activity occurs, this means this part of the brain is responsible for that specific activity. This is just silly. There's ZERO evidence that the brain can do a lot of these things like recall specific memories at will or have a self image. The brain is equipped with these functions but it's the User(Conscious Energy) that causes these specific functions to occur.
I believe consciousness is well understood. It's obvious based on science that consciousness isn't an emergent property of the material brain. How can the material brain recall specific memories at will? How does the material brain know the difference between these specific memories?
One of the interesting recent lines of research that my lab has been involved in over the past few years has been looking at similarities between what goes on between the brain and mind when we remember past events on the one hand and imagine events that might occur in the future or might have occurred in the past. What we have found, particularly with brain scanning studies, is that you get very similar brain networks coming online when you remember past events and imagine future events, for example. Many of the same brain regions or network of structures come online, and this has helped us understand more why, for example, imagining events that might have occurred can be so harmful to memory accuracy because when you imagine, you’re recruiting many of the same brain regions as accessed when you actually remember. So it’s not surprising that some of these imagined events can actually turn into false memories under the right circumstances. - See more at: hnn.us...
