By Our Bootstraps: An Egregorial Model of Reality

0 Replies, 87 Views

Quote:The relationship between consciousness, that is, “awareness,” and the physical universe has been an ongoing mystery to modern science. Indeed, in 1995 Australian philosopher David Chalmers called this the ‘hard problem.’ By this, he meant how can inanimate matter, in the form of aggregates of atoms and molecules, create self-aware, reflexive consciousness? At what point does consciousness appear? Is it simply an epiphenomenon that appears when systems become more complex? In this presentation, I will argue that modern science has got things the wrong way around. It is consciousness that creates matter. I will present evidence for this from various areas of modern research, but specifically quantum mechanics, cosmology, and simulation theory. I call this the Egregorial Interpretation. I use this model to explain many if not all, psychic perceptions and encounters.
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'
