I wanted to share my thoughts on levels of consciousness I have come to understand through several experiences in my life so far. I am going to explain these states of consciousness I have experienced, most of us would have also experieneced these states to some extent.
If we imagine levels of consciousness in a linear way,
At one end is absolute unconscience
closest to this end is extreme sub consciousness (absolute ignorance)
midpoint is consciousness (awakened state)
closer to the other end is super consciousness (absolute enlightenment)
at the other end is supreme conscience.
These states can be explained with an equation of s=bm2, (soul (conscience), body, mind) that I have put together in the Theory of everything.
Absolute unconscience is the state of body with out awareness of soul or conscience.
Realm of subconscious is governed by pride, jealousy, greed, gluttony, suspicion, anger, obsession, addiction, fear and so forth. In this state, the intellect or mind of the being is subdued and the being experiences more bodily presence. Excessive non vegetarian food, excessive alcohol and drugs are the dietary habits of this group. Extreme examples of sub conscious beings are Dictators, War lords, Maniacs, psychos...This state of existence is all about taking and is violent like volcano.
Conscious state is governed by love, compassion and contentment. This state is middle ground where all the attributes for existence are sustained and controlled and is a peaceful state. In this state the intellect or the mind of the being is balanced and aware of its body and soul. Moderate consumption of food, very limited consumption of alcohol are the dietary habits of this group. Beings in this state experience happiness, sorrow and peace. This state can be attained by many of us if we just change our habits.
Super Conscious state is the state of divine beings like Krishna, Moses, Jesus Christ, Shirdi Sai Baba, Lord Buddha, Mohammed Prophet, Guru Nanak, RamaKrishna Paramahamsa, Dada Bhagwan and many more great spiritual people. In this state mind is fully realized of its soul and very limited bodily experience remains. This is the highest state possible for conscious human beings and is pure love and compassion and is absolutely peaceful. This state is very highly sustainable energy state like our sun. The beings in this state are all about giving. Very simple vegetarian diet and no consumption of alcohol is the dietary precursor for this state. Great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, altruistic scientists, phliosophers, doctors who are constantly working for the greater good of the world also have elevated consciouness.
Final state of Consiousness is Supreme conscience or God or Allah or Paramatma, this state is beyond matter and energy but is the source of it all. This state is absolute soul and there is no body or mind. Super Conscious beings come to being from Supreme conscience to serve humanity and when they are done they become supreme conscience again.
In S=bm2, Soul or Conscience or God is the universal constant and is omni present, omni scient, and omni potent. Perception of this universal constant is the only variable between all things else. It is this difference in perception of this constant, is the universe we see. I have classified things and beings based up on their perception. It is the inherent nature of human beings to try and attain the absolute perception of this universal conscience or God. This universal conscience or Soul or God is everywhere as it is in everything and nothing as it is not a thing.
Sub Conscious materializes
Super Conscious energizes
Sub Conscious has definite spacetime
conscious has finite spacetime
Super conscious has infinite spacetime
Sub conscious ignores the truth
conscious searches for the truth
Super conscious realizes the truth
Sub conscious divides
Super Conscious unites
Sub conscious blames
Super conscious resolves
Extreme sub consciousness leads to absolute unconscience or permanent death or eternal black hole.
Conscious individuals will lead peaceful lives
and will result in conscious socieities and eventually peaceful world.
Super consciousness leads to absolute enlightenment or eternal peace or Supreme conscience or immortality or infinity.
As I wondered where do the animals and plants on this planet fit in this scale, I can see that animal kingdom is just below the mid point of consciousness but not too far from it and plant kingdom is above the conscious mid point.
Animal kingdom though governed by some attributes of subconscious state such as fear of survival, desire for reproduction these attributes are under control and sustained by mother nature. Hence their state of existence does not lead to chaos on this planet.
Plant kingdom is governed by the attributes of super consciousness and hence it is all about giving food, shelter and medicine to other beings and are just doing the duty and being fully aware of their existence. As beings in this state have deemed the need for sensory perception as irrelevant, this state of beings do not have full fledged sensory receptors. Greatest of spiritual teachers have attained enlightenment in presesnce of these beings.
We have been doing cycles of existence at different levels of consciousness via
birth [first moment of consciouness] and death [brief moment of unconsciouness].
We have developed a system of credit history which tracks the behaviour of an individual finances and gives one certain capabilities to borrow and acquire certain material things in our society. Can any one individual remember exactly all that he has spent over past few months, let alone the entire life. So can one not remember their past lives, but are given this current form based up on the sum total of the actions and reactions that have occurred during the course of one's previous existence. This is called "Karma" philosophy. As humans we have the capability to understand and experience these different states of consciousness, we are gifted beings. Human life is a chance to realize these different states of existence and work towards the ultimate state of supreme conscience. As critical mass of us lean towards sub conscious state, the balance gets disturbed and chaos will set in. We all know the effects of deforestation. As the worlds balance tips off towards the sub conscious, world becomes chaotic and people will start to experience its ill effects. This is when supreme conscience will arise to restore the balance on this planet in one way or another.
