A Growing Number Of Scientists Now Believe in “Panpsychism”
Everything is physics. But we call metaphysics what we do not understand yet. However the unknown drives everything. Hence metaphysics rules over everything. (The Mind Awakened, Brigitte Kayser)
The idea that everything from spoons to stones is conscious is gaining academic credibility.
Panpsychism doesn’t necessarily imply that every inanimate object is conscious. “Panpsychists usually don’t take tables and other artifacts to be conscious as a whole,” writes Hedda Hassel Mørch, a philosophy researcher at New York University’s Center for Mind, Brain, and Consciousness, in an email. “Rather, the table could be understood as a collection of particles that each have their own very simple form of consciousness.”
Only panpsychism can explain molecular cohesion and symbiosis and the coordination between molecular machines as shown in the video below. These machines run so precisely that it is pure silliness to avoid the topic these days.
The realization that there is an unexplained phenomenon occurring is creating an academic schism and it is about time — but will it ever be explained? No way — but the main goal of post-materialistic science is to dare ask such questions.
It is daunting to regard a rock as conscious, but look at the rare earthextraction (mining) for example destroying the ecosystem. If rocks can’t talk, it is obvious that they have their own function in geology, and thinking we can just rip the ground open for personal enrichment is definitely coming to an end.
But, then again, panpsychism could very well imply that conscious tables exist: One interpretation of the theory holds that “any system is conscious,” says Chalmers. “Rocks will be conscious, spoons will be conscious, the Earth will be conscious. Any kind of aggregation gives you consciousness.”
The universe is alive and anything else comprised within it, and that alone means that the end of all dogmas is no longer far away. Just think about it: everything is where it has to be otherwise there wouldn’t be any life possible. For life to emerge several specific factors are needed. On a larger scale the moon’s influences on earth, for example, is part of the planet’s life cycles. The sun-earth distance is no coincidence, otherwise we wouldn’t be here. The same holds true for sub-particles.
The biggest problem caused by panpsychism is known as the “combination problem”: Precisely how do small particles of consciousness collectively form more complex consciousness? Consciousness may exist in all particles, but that doesn’t answer the question of how these tiny fragments of physical consciousness come together to create the more complex experience of human consciousness.
How revealing, the dilemma is clear!
The biggest problem at this point is that academia must now recognize the “intelligent design”, and that would literally mean the collapse of academia itself!
Indeed, where and how do our molecular machines get the awareness of doing what they do? Just watch the video and then decide for yourself!
