Who’s asking the question??

spirit bodyEver ask the question, “Who am I?” or more specifically, wondered who is actually conducting this inquiry?  Without making reference to one’s role in life, profession, familial relationships, gender or some other characteristic of the physical form, attempting to answer this question becomes remarkably difficult. The predictive ability of “science” always seems to grind to a screeching halt when we begin to address self-awareness.  If the universe is merely a series of accidental processes, then why am I aware of myself? My capacity to direct my experience beyond the first level of Maslow’s hierarchy seems irreconcilable with the concept of randomness.  The growth of the body results in the formation of a specific structure, the brain, and this yields the “Mind.”  But why does self-consciousness result?  Furthermore, the study of biology has shown that every seven years we have an entirely new physical form, yet “I” remain largely undisturbed by these changes.

If you’ve ever pondered these questions, then I’m sure that you are quite aware of the shortcomings of the traditional institutions.  One paradigm offers unintelligent randomness as the main course, and the other, a hyper-vigilant Ubermensch and his nemesis. As mankind continues its march into the meat of the 21st Century however, a general discontent with both schools of thought is beginning to percolate.  Global interest in spirit and spirituality has been increasing, facilitated by the expansion of access to the internet.  One need only look at the increased interest in yoga, meditation, and hermeticism over the past twenty years for corroborating evidence.  We definitely live in a pretty remarkable time as far as the sharing of information is concerned and the rate of dissemination of ideas is now defined by an exponential function.

There is a paradigm shift underway where our understanding of consciousness is concerned that rivals the Newtonian revolution and the advancement that it brought to mechanics.  As the paradigm shifts, a new understanding of the conscious mind within the framework of the universe is beginning to evolve. Author of The Global Brain, Peter Russell has helped to mold a new understanding of consciousness and reality.  Check out the following lecture, The Primacy of Consciousness if you’re curious about this kinda stuff as I think you’ll find it quite enlightening.  Russell addresses some of the basic assumptions we hold regarding consciousness and the fundamental role it plays within the structure of the universe.  Hope you enjoy.
