Cosmic Context

The Cosmos and Consciousness

This series of principals addresses the cosmological, or most abstract set of philosophical statements in this system and it is intended to set the context for the previous sets of principals on human nature, moral/ethical, political, and economic systems. Each series of principals is interrelated to the others but each is also designed to stand on its own. Several ways of looking at the existence of consciousness, its origins and relationship to the other aspects of reality are reasonable.

Consciousness exists as a fundamental aspect of Reality

The following is one argument for Inclusion of Consciousness as a Constitutional Aspect of Reality. Our deepest explorers of human subjectivity have reported, cross culturally, that direct realization of consciousness causes a change in world view that assigns Consciousness a high degree of reality and that this is directly experienced in realizing a change in consciousness that has many names in different traditions, Satori, Enlightenment, Self Realization, etc. My personal exploration of consciousness independently and convincingly validates the claims of the mystics.

Consciousness is co-occurring with space-time and energy

The purpose of defining these principals is to bring materialism and idealism together in an integrated view of reality. The conflict between idealism and realism is best characterized by the assertion of original supremacy of either Consciousness or Matter. The origin of one aspect of reality precedes the other and is therefore superior, the other aspect being derivative of the first.

The Nature of Things

The dominant cultural influences of our times, Christianity, Science, and Capitalism, define a range of human identity that leaves us collectively with a vision of personhood as being separate from our deeper experience of spirituality in religious terms, being an objective material observer of experience in scientific terms, and being a private engine of material acquisition in an industrially powered social economy of monetized exchange.
