Thoughts On Coca, Cannabis, Opium & Tobacco – Gifts Of The Great Spirit

God’s Brain

1 Comment

Whether your frame of reference is the stern and vengeful God of the Abrahamic religions, or the loving and nurturing God of the Nature-centered religions, almost all of Man’s spiritual visions have at their center a God with consciousness.

Equally, whether their religion envisioned a male figure dominating the earth from his place in the sky, or a mother/father spirit that inhabits all living creatures as well as the living Earth, most humans conceive of their own consciousness as arising from some organic source, most often “inside” themselves.

Since the beginnings of recorded time, people have also attempted to create images of God – with some notable exceptions like Islam. These images have taken every imaginable form, from the concrete to the abstract.

Like many others, I have often thought about and wondered over the question of cosmic consciousness. In recent years, with the development of technology that enables us to envision the human brain at the most intricate, detailed levels, many people have looked at the brain’s neural network and then looked up at the universe of stars and galaxies and wondered at the apparent similarities.

So without further introduction I would simply like to say that I recently came across a set of images and a short (4 minute) video that completely blew me away and I want to share it with you and the other readers of this blog. The video is at the bottom of the web page linked to above, and I suggest that you get yourself in a receptive state of mind and then go directly to the video, saving the still images and the written description of how the images were created for afterwards.

When I was a child I moved around the world with my military family, always traveling by ship in the days before aircraft could cross oceans. I would spend hours on deck writing messages, sealing them with candle wax in bottles I snagged from somewhere on board, and then consigning them to the sea knowing in my heart that they were on their way to someone, somewhere who would read them. Sometime replies arrived at my grandparents’ house years later, and they would forward them to me wherever I was living. From these contacts I developed pen-pals who I stayed in touch with for many years. I was fortunate to develop, very early in my life, a sense of the network that invisibly but seamlessly connects us all.

One thought on “God’s Brain

  1. You mentioned the question of cosmic consciousness. I believe that all things have will and awareness. But the “biggest god conceivable” – the universe – would be vastly different in expression and nature of will and awareness, as compared with our animal kingdom ways. So I defer avoid viewing such lifeforms as represented by a human analogy, limiting what I would venture to guess about those galactic lifeforms. I enjoyed this post!
