As a physical scientist, Mitchell had grown accustomed to directing his attention to the objective world “out there.” But the experience that came to him while hurtling through space led him to a startling hypothesis: Perhaps reality is more complex, subtle, and inexorably mysterious than conventional science had led him to believe. Perhaps a deep understanding of consciousness (inner space) could lead to a new and expanded view of reality in which objective and subjective, outer and inner, are understood as equal aspects of the miracle and mystery of being. In his words:
“I realized that the story of ourselves as told by science—our cosmology, our religion—was incomplete and likely flawed. I recognized that the Newtonian idea of separate, independent, discreet things in the universe wasn't a fully accurate description. What was needed was a new story of who we are and what we are capable of becoming.”

The observer represents a state of being what is it?
Dont tell me a label either because with a defined state of being then nothing could exist and we are obviously more then nothing.
onequestionMaybe consciousness is pure imagination....
onequestionI have a question for you... can you explain your idea of consciousness is without actually using the word consciousness? Try not to use the word god or consciousness.
So from that premise alone, i can only conclude there is a bigger system outside of the universe. Just because we cant see it or understand it does not mean it dose not exist.
If god created man in his image, was it his consciousness that gave us life?
In turn, does our individual consciousness give others life?
Like the way there are so many solar systems, inside galaxy's,inside the universe?
So I'm here at this thought; "Consciousness is Creation".
