A Conscious Cosmos

Short animated video summarizing why the fundamental nature of the cosmos is consciousness. The fact we are aware is one thing we know for sure. We couldn't have an experience without being aware. Yet, despite appearances, our experience of the world is only the brain's reconstruction of what is "out there."

The current scientific worldview assumes that the brain not only generates the picture of the world that we experience, but it also creates awareness itself. An alternative assumption is that awareness goes all the way down the evolutionary tree. This leads to the conclusion that the cosmos is a vast field of information that is also aware—a field of knowing knowing itself.
