This notion is interesting as entertainment and more so to people that haven’t done much research in their lives. I have never heard anyone that has spent a life time researching everything they possibly could including helping the world solve problems, traveling to figure out other peoples, and taking on as much as they possibly could including thought and philosophies…that ever attests the notion of Cosmic Consciousness.
I wonder what your definition of it is.
In my personal experience I was in love with that idea, but after hard work in the research and writing department here (my home and computer) I don’t consider it a possibility any more. I did not have nearly as much research and deductive reasoning done before, so that is why it was a much more interesting plausibility. It’s just words as far as I can tell now much more informed about my mind, the world of mind, and the logical way the universe works. But that is a lot of work, so hardly anyone is actually going to wind up with that. There will be a lot of people interested in it.
This kind of notion makes for good entertainment to sell as a book or as a pay per view speaker in front of audiences and so forth, and I think that it is almost necessary for people to motivate them, but eventually some of them are going to do a lot of deductive reasoning and research, and they are going to be disappointed in themselves for taking after this line of reasoning.
Often people like this do not give the ability of their brains as much credit as it deserves. In other words they abilities that are simply ordinary abilities without supernatural nana, but they credit these abilities to something or someone else not to their own brain power.
The problem is in not understanding how the mental faculties work and that they are informational “technology” so to speak. Of course in a bio form.
If you don’t understand the informationallity and the logic of these mental faculties, then it is easy to fly off of the paper into belief systems about how the reason for their sensations and ideas is from other beings or other people and not of their own brain power. And that is the essence of the delusions that we scz’s experience.
It appears that the brain is just processing memorized information against new information, and coming to a paradigmatic expression which we experience in the conscious strata of our minds. The memorized information is false, so it produces a fake reality.
All people’s minds produce a synthetic reality. Such as there is no color or music or even language like we hear or read it beyond our brains. Our brains make information into language, color, and music.
And memorized false information tricking people into believing what is not real must be real because their brains keep showing them it is real is what human kind is about.
Even the most logical genius who has been researched and studied as his or her personal passion from the toddler phase will tell you that this occurs to them.
I have a saying on my board near me; “The Bowels Are Not What They Seem.” That is a universal saying for everyone. Bowels is an old word for the “innards” which is where the phenomenon of the mind is at. The mind is “inner self” or bowels.
This saying is true for everyone, but if you do not know how that is true, then you cannot filter out what seems true and real from what is true and real about your own mind. It is to live a completely different kind of life the difference between knowing this and always remaining aware of this about our own minds and about everyone else’s minds, and never knowing either fact.
Part of the difficulty for newcomers to logic and how it applies to thinking is just not knowing how or where to begin. Most people don’t want to know. They are either strapped for time, or they are sensationalists who value “sensationalism” as being more important than knowing the facts about their minds or the rest of reality in the same way.
So give yourself credit where credit is due! It’s your mind doing the thinking and saying and feeling etc and not anyone or anything else. Don’t give away credit for what happens in it to anyone or anything else you’ve imagined. This kind of thing is the oldest trick in the world in order to make people more controllable, and it has worked. And I don’t mean by magic or hocus pocus controls. I mean fooled people are easier to control period.
