Where Are You…In Your Body?
Continued from yesterday…
Where are you in your body? You are aware that you are, but where does that awareness begin and where does it come from?
First off, science doesn’t have good answers to these questions. Dr. Lanza reasons that:
“Nothing in modern physics explains how a group of molecules in your brain create consciousness…Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter…The beauty of a sunset, the miracle of falling in love, the taste of a delicious meal—these are all mysteries to modern science.”
Even with the vast knowledge we have amassed, human consciousness still remains a scientific mystery.
Dr. Lanza then suggests that, “without consciousness, ‘matter’ dwells in an undetermined state of probability. Any universe that could have preceded consciousness only existed in a probability state.”
He then adds that particles seem to respond to a conscious observer, interacting at some level with life imbedded into the universe. This is fascinating because it intimates that perception and consciousness not only shape visible reality, but that spirit and matter are more intricately connected than we initially thought. Simply put, the more we learn through the study of quantum physics, the more the line between matter and spirit is blurred.
This suggests that in spite of the constant renewing of cells in our body and the transferring of atoms between us, there is a dynamic force, a continuous presence and being—life—that breathes consciousness through us.
