Ashley: I know what you mean when you talk about all life being one. That time I said there’s no integrity in being a rock, and you said that was an arrogant thing to say. I understand. In Bertrand Russell’s “The Problems of Philosophy” he says Leibniz essentially thinks simpler matter is more or less a collection of rudimentary minds. Berkeley thinks matter is nothing but a collection of ideas. I see why you wrote a blog post on Being.
Robert: I see all matter as being conscious – it explains the mysteries of quantum physics. Our individual consciousness is a collection of consciousnesses of smaller components, providing the illusion of a whole. But each bacteria within our being also has a mind, making decisions just as us, albeit perhaps of a lesser intellect using lesser powers of logic due to lack of neurological connections, present only within complex structures. Probabilities are merely decisions of consciousnesses. At the core matter is a representation of energy, thus why I say that all which is true is energy, energy is all that exists, and energy is the one true conscious, with each piece of matter being an eye of perspective consciousness.
Ashley: Thank you! I profoundly agree. Would you still consider yourself a panentheist/ pantheist?
