You are the universe

Perhaps you've thought about the fact that everything in our solarsystem is basicly stardust. Even you. You are a piece of stardust walking around on a ball of stardust. But our sun is part of the galaxy hence you are too. If you let your imagination grasp the concept of you being one with everything you'll start seeing that consciousness is also a part of the universe. Consciousness is not a biproduct of biology no more than leaves are biproducts of the tree. Consciousness permeates creation and it is manifested in, but not limited to, biology.

    There are no words for this. At least the majority of people agree this is idiotic.

      • "Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration – that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves." If that's true, then a lot of people seem to have gotten the short end of the stick when we were sharing it out. In fact, we're a bit of a prick, no?

            If I was the universe I'd kill myself to save everyone from the sadness of this world.

            First you must give up the idea of your self (for that is merely what it is, an idea and nothing more) then you will see the truth. Not that you aren't far off though; you just need to know on the same level as you know you exist (the emphasis on the feeling of existence itself and not the 'you' 'doing' the existing), rather than simply believe it on an intellectual level because someone else told you and it makes kinda sense.
