FORA - Our world is a figment of the conditions through which it arises- imagination being a conditioning factor.
Recent discoveries in neurology have revealed that microtubules in nerve cells interact at a quantum level, at which, according to the M-theory, all units of energy are immediately connected to every other by mysterious 'strings', beyond the limitations of relative space (and the speed of light.)
Consciousness could be visualized as an interactive feedback loop between ethereal awareness and conditioned manifestation. The necessity then for consciousness is that it's receptors inhabit the conditions which it has the ability to perceive. Thus consciousness is awareness- fully immersed in and refracted by the conditions that are being observed.
Artistic creation is the perfect example of consciousness- say you're drawing and 40 times a second your brain is cognizing an image of what you're drawing, and based on that awareness it's stimulating the nervous system to move your fingers according to some transcending perception of beauty. Thus consciousness is simultaneously creating and experiencing the conditions of it's awareness.
Look closer at your nervous system as another example... it is the primary tool of consciousness in this realm, and the nerves have perceptions of 'matter' and so must have some relationship to matter, such as being composed of matter. Then the form of the perceptions are the relative difference between the vibrations of the observing nerves and the vibrations being observed. Although any way you slice it they are both ultimately conditioned by each other and cannot be divided.
The receptors of consciousness must inhabit the space which they have the ability to perceive and interact with. Yet the awareness transcending that space might even be conscious, perceiving you and 6 billion other human cells as it's own organ... this and a billion other galaxies, omniscient as you might be observing others play a video game in virtual space.
All energy is connected to a quantum matrix which is utterly interconnected at a level transcending our perceptions of space, which are ultimately conditioned by the conditions of space, which are just another fantastic set of conditions- not in anyway fundamental.
But just like your society naturally conditions and defines you in a way that most beings have no other insight other than to cling- beings conditioned by this space assume it to be somehow fundamental as it conditions all that could hope to be perceived by the spacial bodies which they identify with.
Yet the root of consciousness cannot be pinned down, it is ethereal and so transcends and unifies many conditions; yet, consciousness as we could possibly relate to could not possibly exist independent from manifestation... consciousness is the expression of the relationships of form, contrast. Our perceptions of this world are conditioned by the archetypal forms of the conditions upon which this space arises.
Cultural space arises in your biological mind space. So just as your perceptions of culture are conditioned by the conditions of your body- that music sounds good because your ears are tuned at the right vibration to dig it, and the being who made the music has a body much like yours.
Deeper now- look at this body, it's mainly composed of a vastly insignificant volume of physicality. So if awareness is omniscient, why don't you feel infinitely small all the time? Your body is so important to your everything that if it loses balance you die! It's the end of the world as you know it- the end of the world that conditions your gross perceptions. And there are billions of humans just like you. Yet you feel so important that it's easy to forget you're infinitely small and act as though you're the center of the universe most of the time. But you're just another phenomenon- it's all you've ever been. Nothing separates you from the chair you're sitting on, but the ecstatic relationship that 'your' nerve cells are having with each other.
So according to these observations, that we're infinitely small and just made of conditions like all other things, yet we feel infinitely large- all vibrations, all networks of relationships, no matter how subtle, are amplified into awareness as the center of being- and if they attain enough complexity, this fantastic interactive feedback loop called consciousness arises in awareness- one of infinite other phenomenon which might arise.
