Is the universe a living organism? (Documentary)

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Living Universe - a documentary about consciousness and reality explores the idea of a conscious, living universe.

  • Reflect On:

    Non-material science is making huge leaps, but is still largely ignored by mainstream academia. With some very significant results being published in this very large field, why do you think that is?

“Since the time of Plato, the human understanding of the universe has moved through two epoch-defining paradigms. These are the view of the universe as a great mind, moving into the view of the universe as a great machine. Today there are signs that the modern mind is moving  towards an organismic view of the universe, apprehended as an evolving, self-generating, and ultimately living process.” (Video below)

Today, our understanding of quantum mechanics is furthering our knowledge about how consciousness interacts with physical material reality, and perhaps how we as individuals as well as a collective are constantly interacting with the universe.  Is the universe a living organism? Does consciousness and life on our plant and perhaps others all participate in ‘co-creating’ the universe? Perhaps these are, for now, unanswerable questions, but it’s definitely mind-altering to explore, because from what we know now, most likely, the universe is a living organism. In fact, based on my research into quantum mechanics, parapsychology, neurobiology  and consciousness, which are all intertwined, there is no doubt a connection between the universe, and all of it’s material and non material properties with the consciousness of everything in it. In fact, I believe all matter possess some factors of consciousness, and I do not believe that a physical biological being is only capable of possessing some type of conscious.

This topic is deep and connects to many others. In the film below, researcher Adrian David Nelson dives deeper. Nelson runs a very interesting page called Origins of Consciousness   and also has a very informative YouTube Channel. Nelson is an independent researcher, academic and has also worked at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, an organization that is a world leader with regards to the study of such phenomenon discussed in the documentary below.

I joined the CE team in 2010 shortly after finishing university and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since :) There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation.
