Wanyoung E. Kim deposited Cosmophenomenology: Alterity and Harmony of Consciousness as Dark Energy in the Universe on Humanities Commons 3 months, 1 week ago
I prove that consciousness, otherwise known as the soul, is an uncategorized dark energy and force of life that is polymorphous, expressible as biophotons of light as well as waves. Dark energy is surmised by physicists to be Einstein’s cosmological constant because it dictates the behavior of atoms in space and can also exist in a vacuum or void. It is responsible for the relativity of spacetime. My thesis hinges upon the premise that consciousness is (dark) energy, and that as such, it is a cosmological constant that neither comes into being nor goes out of being, according to Einstein’s notion of energy (E=MC^2). My thesis centers around the primordial form of consciousness as dark energy that allows its continuation of existence after a person’s bodily or physical death. Consciousness is not dependent on the existence of matter, space, or time, although it interacts with these variables. I compare the continuation of consciousness after death in the Orch-OR theory of Sir Roger Penrose and Stuart Hameroff with that of the monadology in Leibniz. Both theories concern the inscribing of consciousness as quantum information in small structures called microtubules/monads, which allows this information to pass on into different realms after death. The Quantum Immortality theory also discusses the passing on of consciousness into a different universe which allows it to evade death. In an infinitely expanding universe not confined by space or time, there would potentially be an infinity of such multiple universes. I have preceded the discussion of these theories with a thorough explanation of quantum mechanics and the interaction between the dark energy of consciousness and matter in the universe. Dark energy is the very motivating force of material phenomena. Without dark energy, matter would be motionless.
