The important point is that what this indicates is an indefinable consciousness that permeates all things. Basically they are saying God is real. They can’t and never will be able to say what that is and how it works, with any precision, because God in incomprehensible and beyond the capacity of the human mind to define, ever. To see God you must be God. That, of course, will not sit well with the empiricists. I’m just pleased that they are finding themselves on the brink of discoveries they never wanted to encounter. See… they don’t have any choice in the matter… sooner or later you wind up in the right ballpark, even if you never understand the principles of the game. It’s a lot like a dog chasing his tail, or a car, eventually he catches one or the other and has no idea what to do with it.
Some of the world’s most renowned scientists are questioning whether the cosmos has an inner life similar to our own.
For centuries, modern science has been shrinking the gap between humans and the rest of the universe, from Isaac Newton showing that one set of laws applies equally to falling apples and orbiting moons to Carl Sagan intoning that “we are made of star stuff” — that the atoms of our bodies were literally forged in the nuclear furnaces of other stars.
Even in that context, Gregory Matloff’s ideas are shocking. The veteran physicist at New York City College of Technology recently published a paper arguing that humans may be like the rest of the universe in substance and in spirit. A “proto-consciousness field” could extend through all of space, he argues. Stars may be thinking entities that deliberately control their paths. Put more bluntly, the entire cosmos may be self-aware.
