Clearly, as people study this stuff and have insights, they go off on tangents and to the extent such people communicate about their knowledge and wisdom the discussion then becomes both clearer and more impossible.
For instance, if we are all combined in one universal consciousness thing then what, exactly, are we trying to do?
Or what should we do?
Doesn’t this state of things suggest that we can basically think our way out of any dilemma and create any Universe we want?
Some scientists think we can create other universes and are working on how to do that.
Just what we need.
Should we make peace or war?
Pottery or mud?
Green and blue living planet or barren hot brown Earth?
And are we doing that, or is God doing that, or are we God? Or what?
