We, the Humans, are “more conscious” than the Universe because we have a faculty called a Will.
The Will of the Human Being makes him (or her) very different from every thing else in the Universe. We are able to Want Something.
We are able to Strive for Something (a Goal). The rest of the Universes is governed by Rules, the Laws of Nature.
The first problem we encounter is that experiments show that an Intention (an act of the Will) is not created in what psychologists call the Consciousness. An Intention starts in the Unconsciousness (also called The Emotions).
This problem can be easily solved by accepting that the Unconsciousness is more conscious than the Consciousness.
What are The Emotions Striving for?
Love, Unity, Harmony.
Strange this is same thing the Universe is “striving for”. In the terminology of the Universe Love, Harmony and Unity are called Symmetry. We share the same strivings as the Universe.
Perhaps we are different because we Live. The Universe (Matter) is dead.
We are capable to be aware of the environment, to adapt to the environment, to manipulate and to move in our environment.
We also have the ability to have “offspring”.
Of course we are not able to fully understand what environment the Universe sees. The quantum potential of the Vacuum, the Zero-Point-Field, contains influences from many other Universes.
Universes are aware of other Universes in the Multi-Verse. It shows all the other aspects of Life also. It is born (Big Bang) and it dies (Big Crunch) and it even produces off-spring.
So are we Created or are we Creating?
Do we have a Free Wil?
The answer is NO.
We are created by the Universe and behave like the Universe. We are an enfolding of the Universe just like our cells are an enfolding and Galaxies are an enfolding. All of them are “look alikes”.
We behave in the same way. If we look outside we see the same as we look inside. The Universe and Human Beings are Self-Referential!
In our context we have a Free Choice (not free Will) to travel one of the many (246 * 320 * 59 * 76 * 112 * 133 * 17 * 19 * 23 * 29 * 31 * 41 * 47 * 59 * 71) paths the Universe has made available for us to explore.
A “Thing” is conscious if It contains a Memory. Without a Memory there is nothing to compare. When there is nothing to compare Every Thing Is (=) and Every Thing is just One (1).
The Universe would be One and completely unaware of itself. It would not exist.
So to be conscious we have to “Make a Difference”.
