Did you ever stare at the night sky and wonder how many stars there are out there?
Thanks to science today, we have a good estimate of the number of stars in the entire universe. At the last count, there are more than seventy thousand, million, million, million stars.
How do we, as human beings, wrap our minds around the enormity of that? How do we even attempt to envision something that large?
The universe measures more than fifteen billion light-years across, which means that it would take a particle of light fifteen billion years to travel that distance. Or would it?
At the subatomic or quantum level of reality, light doesn’t travel like you’d think it does. Light only appears when someone is there to look at it. The rest of the time it is nowhere to be seen. Light actually exists outside of space and outside of time. That means that space and time are perspectives seen by the observer, but not by the light particle. Light particles routinely dodge around the space-time constraints under which we assume that they exist.
Inner consciousness is the new frontier of discovery today. Inner consciousness is not something small which is crammed inside the human brain. It is bigger than the universe, because it contains all of Creation. Outer space is merely a projection of consciousness. Inner space is the consciousness doing the projecting. That’s why light particles appear to have traveled fifteen billion light-years across the universe in order to reach us as observers. Because we interpret them that way in our consciousness. We construct reality according to those perceptions.
The Shift occurring in consciousness today includes a shift to the perspective that all life is a construct of consciousness. The fabric of the universe, the primal Field, was created by consciousness and is held in existence by consciousness. The entire universe is the consciousness of the Creator.
Because space is a perspective of consciousness, it is not really “out there,” it actually exists within you. You have one view of that field of consciousness from a viewpoint that is unique to your personality. That view comes complete with an apparent location in space and an apparent location in time.
We are approaching a global paradigm shift where the world realizes that everything is made up of consciousness. Consciousness creates energy, it creates matter, and it creates the perspectives of space and time.
Spiritual philosophies already see the universe as the consciousness of the Creator. When science takes its next step and sees the consciousness that underlies all phenomena, then we will once again have a common link between science and spirituality.
