WHAT IF EVERYTHING'S ALIVE AND CONSCIOUS?





"If the universe is alive, if solar systems are alive, if galaxies are alive, if
planets are alive, are they conscious? Or are they alive but unconscious, in the same way that perhaps a worm or a bacterium might be alive but unconscious? And is the kind of life that may exist in the cosmos more conscious than ourselves, or do we have to assume it's a great deal less conscious than ourselves? Are we the smartest beings in the universe? Now the usual answer of science is yes. I think that's a very improbable assumption."
Rupert Sheldrake "Physics of Angels"

Nothing is alive of itself. The universe is alive and we are bits obtaining our "life" from that.
