“It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds and penetrates us…it binds the galaxy together.”
Obi Wan Kenobi, describing The Force, in Star Wars
When we look at all the parts of our world in a more holistic way–even starting at the tiny level of quanta–we see an intelligence of order that materialists may miss. At every level, life assumes similar arrangements and functions. Every size of earthly entity shares functional features of respiration, excretion, reproduction, and more. Every plant and animal, and even matter that’s thought to be unconscious–like rocks and crystals–is built from intricate, familiar patterns.
Consciousness doesn’t appear in different forms, it appears as different forms in these patterns across the spectrum of Life. The concept of a “holographic universe” applies as these patterns appear whole and complete and are fractally part of a larger whole system, mirroring their dynamics of energy and matter. Every piece reflects the complete arrangement of consciousness in the whole. The torus-shaped magnetic field that surrounds our planet, surrounds atoms, our bodies–and even galaxies. Functions reliably take place chemically and mechanically, but more profoundly, they take place energetically.
