"You cannot take away freedom to protect it, you cannot destroy the free market to save it, and you cannot uphold freedom of speech by silencing those with whom you disagree. To take rights away to defend them or to spend your way out of debt defies common sense."

– Glenn Beck, Common Sense, 2009

COMMENTS: In the above lines, Beck shows a good understanding of human nature and of society.

CONSCIOUSNESS AT PLANCK SCALE

Planck scale spacetime geometry gives rise to irreducible features like mass, spin and charge and also qualia. Sentience can not be created in a lab nor can sentience be revived in a clinically dead brain nor can sentience be restored in a corpse. So, it means that sentience is a fundamental property of energy/matter that shows itself in a greater degree as a material system gets better organized. Sentience (like mass, spin and charge) can only be manipulated using a variety of electrochemical or EM means. So, it's a distinct possibility that the essential features of consciousness - as a specific state of vibration of energy/matter - are built into the universe at its most basic level and repeat in scale holographically and so in this way we can logically the explain fine tuning of the universe, emergence of sentient creatures via evolutionary processes and qualia in the neuronal networks .

At the Planck scale, information is non-local and holographic and remains so (though in involved form even at the macro leve) since at the most fundamental level of the macro universe is the Planck scale.

There could be a level of energy/matter more fundamental than the Planck scale...who knows...

Roger Penrose and Lee Smolin and some others think that information in Planck scale geometry is dynamic and non-random.

Is the universe a hologram? It appears that cosmic information at the Planck scale repeats at larger and larger scales holographically, which, as a result, gives rise to a universe based on fine tuning and which gives rise to sentient entities on a planet like Earth. Mass, charge, spin and consciousness being fundamental aspects of the Planck level persist eternally, whereas birth, life experience and death, in the case of sentient creatures, constituting the progressive localized spatiotemporal events with an underlying nonlocal causal connection in this universal field .

Consciousness/sentience cannot be created, quantified, isolated, transplanted, stored or dissected. Like other aspects of energy/matter, consciousness can only be manipulated by subjecting it to chemicals, electrical fields and hypnosis which thus makes consciousness a fundamental aspect of the universe.

At the Planck scale, say physicists, the strength of gravity is expected to become comparable with the other forces, and it is theorized that all the fundamental forces are unified at that scale, but the exact mechanism of this unification remains unknown. Planck scale is the nondual state of cosmic existence.

CONSCIOUSNESS - THE HARD PROBLEM

In the book, The Conscious Mind, David Chalmers argues that all forms of physicalism (whether reductive or non-reductive) that have dominated modern philosophy and science fail to account for the existence (that is, presence in reality) of consciousness itself.

David Chalmers inquires, "why does the feeling which accompanies awareness of sensory information exist at all?"

I say this is because consciousness is a fundamental feature of stuff (energy/matter) that's inbuilt with other fundamentals at the most fundamental level of cosmic nature. That we cannot account for it via mathematical models simply shows that we can understand the root of consciousness only if we consciously enter the deepest recess of energy/matter where the fundamental set of vibrations that gives rise to mass, spin and charge and consciousness co-exist. To study mass, spin, charge, spacetime, the 4 basic forces and other aspects, we use the conscious mind in its intellectual mode, but to study consciousness itself we would need a mode or a frequency of consciousness that exceeds the frequency of the mental gradation of consciousness and which ultimately leads to the core consciousness embedded in the most fundamental level of the cosmos.

Only yoga can take us there by turning the consciousness on itself which would involve the drawing away of consciousness from material forms and from material phenomena that we experience in life and which are studied by the scientists.

There's no other way of understanding the root and the mechanism of consciousness as part and parcel of the most basic level of the cosmos.
