Our consciousness will be identified as a communicator with the universal Field of Light.
To the title-question of this category of topics, „What is live?“, belongs for us people also the question to our consciousness. Can this question receive a physical answer at all? Does it have a sense to look for an explanation of our consciousness from a scientific and not humanistic point of view?
On far over thousand pages of his new book „Ideas. A History From Fire to Freud“ describes Peter Watson, British scientist and publicist, the impressive history of the human spirit and the search after our consciousness. It is a truly remarkable work. I suspect that each reader of the present page can learn something from it. I have, for example, understood for the first time so clearly, what the difference could be between the successful sciences and the rather unsuccessful humanities in the self-study of the human being. „We owe the failure of this inner (humanistic) contemplations to the fact, that they have built never cumulatively one on top of the other, as it is usual in the sciences, but replaced each other again and again as soon as the gone ahead variation had exhausted itself or had proven as failed.“
It is the more pitiful, that also this valuable work cannot deviate from the many others, if it is about the description of the development of the scientific ideas. Also Watsons history of the scientific ideas finishes almost hundred years ago with the „discovery“ of the first subatomic particles. If he would have finished also his history of the humanistic ideas simultaneously with the scientific history, his book would have become thinner about some.
Of course, not Peter Watson should be made responsible for this situation but the natural scientists themselves, and first of all the physicists, who have not submitted in the last sixty, seventy years any new idea, that could be truly fundamental for the exploration of the consciousness and the self-study through the humanities. As I shortly describe in my most important book „Naturics“, the „Sleeping-Beauty doze“ of the physicist has been even so deep, that they have either not noticed, that the practicians (the engineers and the technologists) had meanwhile advanced into the area of the nanoscale technologies, also without the theoretical support from the side of the traditional physics.
Like the standardizing idea of the Quantum Spectrum of Matter, I can add to this problem of the exploration of our consciousness one another idea, that could steer some of the modern philosophers in a new way maybe. I dare to present this idea here, although Peter Watson doubts on the last page of his book, whether there is somebody at the moment, „who can imagine to himself the next step “.
According to the general traditional opinion, the consciousness results somehow from the brain activities, from the actions of the electrons and molecules in and between the neurons in our head. However, my holistic way of thinking motivates me to consideration that a thought is restricted not only to our head. It is rather a bigger, circular wave, which is only generated in our brain or is gotten from the memory-archive again, but which exists with its scope far outside our head and can even become „thought cooperatively and simultaneously“ by the „attuned“ brains of the people standing emotionally close to us. Our head is rather only a reading- and writing-device of the thoughts, like a laser-head in a CD-recorder, much more than a complete library, which stores all complete works of our life, with all thoughts composed someday in the past.
In order to understand the consciousness, we need also our surroundings, similarly like we need the recipients, in order to describe a broadcaster. A broadcaster without one single recipient is nothing more than an equipment producing music, news and talks for itself in some more or less closed area. The most expensive and most modern transfer-technology is insignificant, if there is no recipient of the signals somewhere outside. I think that a similar situation emerges in our description of the consciousness. We need a „reflection“ of ourselves in order to be able to recognize ourselves. We form our self-portrait by ourselves, but only through our „recipients“ and through their „reflections“ we can know, how our consciousness „works“ or „looks like“.
