In writing and recording their myths and legends, our ancestors were pointing us towards higher universal truths. These stories weren’t written as one-dimensional stories created to just entertain around the camp-fire. They were written deliberately as myths to evoke and explain the ancient impulses of the Universe. Impulses that marked certain events though pre-history.
As Creation developed – expanding forever outwards at an immeasurable speed – the universal knowledge contained within the human psyche sought to make sense of this journey. In so doing, our ancestors traced back our collective history, piecing together this truly epic story.
In their own way, they would map the cosmic experience by pulling together the strands of knowledge contained within their very beings – deep within the collective consciousness. It was, then, through these great antediluvian stories – the
myths of old – that humanity would attempt to capture the great Cosmic journey.
But this Cosmic journey was, essentially, two-fold. On the one hand it involved the creation and forming of the physical, material universe. On the other, a more mystical, evolving consciousness.
A History of Cosmic Consciousness
But where we have gone wrong in the great scientific age, is to view these stories purely from a materialistic perspective. In so doing, we unconsciously separate ourselves from the one true impulse in the Universe that all of these stories allude to – i.e. the living consciousness (the mystical) that permeates every corner, every atom of the Cosmos.
Remarkably, however, in this age of soulless logic and reason – of binary black and white science – we still know that this living consciousness permeates everything – even the seemingly inorganic, unresponsive material matter. Not only do spiritual people know this fact intuitively – and have always known it – but science is now beginning to prove it too. Theoretical science and quantum physics is beginning to see the mystical at work. Atoms seemingly behaving contrary to the ‘natural laws’ of the Universe – or proof (the double-slit experiment) that the presence of a conscious observer in an experiment in fact changes the behaviour of particles just by virtue of being observed.
What we are seeing is that every single physical thing anywhere in the known Universe is animated through an underlying and all-pervasive consciousness.
The real question is, what does this mean? Well, put simply, it means that you and I (and every other thing everywhere) is conscious. We are all connected by consciousness in a single field of (as yet unproven) energy. It is our common ancestor that lives with us today. It is everywhere and is part of our great legacy as Cosmic beings.
