Could we become “superconscious” beings if we were able to master both our conscious and unconscious psyches? If we are, in fact, connected to everything in the universe over a quantum field of energy, what could man become with awareness and control of our superconscious beings?
Let me back up. In a previous post (http://edenrwatt.com/2010/09/can-our-conscious-and-unconscious-become-one/ ) I discussed concepts about the unconscious or subconsious explored by Freud and Jung.
Most of us are intimately acquainted with our conscious mind – the endless thoughts and emotions, judgements and reactions, the logic and reasoning abilities we use in our day to day life. One of our greatest challenges is how to quiet our mind, master these thoughts, and keep ourselves present (instead of flying off into the past to relive encounters or in the future to imagine what we might say or do).
If we can gain mastery over our conscious mind, we have the potential to be powerful beings, present in our daily lives, loving and grateful, sending positive affirmations to our inner selves and to others. If all of humanity were able to achieve this, we would already be evolving to a higher state as a species.
But what more is possible, if we could gain mastery and awareness of both conscious and unconscious? What would that mean? How would we be different?
Carl Jung identified the unconscious mind as having two distinct areas: the personal unconscious and the collective unconscious. The personal unconscious contains our lost memories, painful experiences that are repressed, subliminal perceptions (that we may not have consciously observed), and other contents and abilities that are not yet ready for consciousness (representing our potential).
But beyond this personal, very individual level, Jung identified the collective unconscious which contains instinctive and other elements, a blueprint within our psyches, that have commonalities within tribes, races, nations, and even all of humanity. Evidence appears in dreams, mythology, creative works such as art and literature, throughout the ages and all over the world. Jung said the collective unconscious is “detached from anything personal and it is entirely universal and… its contents can be found everywhere...” This deep inner part of our being has also been defined as the spiritual side, where we are connected to all life, to the universal life force that flows through all of us. In “Vision Speak”, I imagined that we could consciously connect with others using this ‘vision source’.
Deepak Chopra has defined pure consciousness as the field of “all possibilities and infinite creativity“.
Taking these ideas to the another level…. for over two decades, scientists have been involved in discovery about the nature of consciousness (where is it? what is it??) Many have reached the conclusion that human consciousness can best be explored with quantum physics, hence the popular term – “Quantum Consciousness”. Although the early scientists espousing these theories may have been considered renegades, with more and more scientific research backing these claims, they are now leading experts in this emerging field.
If you haven’t seen the documentary movie called “What the Bleep do we Know?”, this is a good place to start. It’s available in it’s entirety (in 12 parts) on Youtube. Check out the trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QlZ5O8_bGk or the roster of scientists involved at http://whatthebleep.com/scientists/ . Lynn McTaggart’s bestselling books – “The Field” and “The Intention Experiment” and Dan Brown’s “The Lost Symbol” brought to public awareness the scientific breakthroughs in the areas of quantum physics and consciousness with progressive scientists such as those at the Institute for Noetic Science (http://noetic.org/). Stuart Hameroff and Deepak Chopra and others have written and broadcast continued findings and dialog on this subject.
The underlying discovery driving all of this excitement is that all living creatures are interconnected in a quantum field of energy. Our thoughts, our dreams, our beings are not just encased within our bodies or our brains but actually exist at a quantum level beyond what we had ever imagined in a field of all possibility.
The implications for this are fantastic. Our thoughts, our intentions, our consciousness create our reality.
And taking this to another place, I imagine that if we achieve a ‘superconscious’ state then we will be able to connect at a deeply spiritual and emotional level where words and misunderstanding will no longer be necessary. I imagine that we will find other life in the universe – perhaps we will connect to those that have left us to move to another dimension or perhaps we will find other life forms who we may never meet and could certainly never talk to but within our superconscious spirit, maybe there will be a common vision source which will allow us to communicate..
I will cover more on this in future posts, especially an indepth review of some of the ideas behind quantum consciousness.
