Everything that exists must exist within consciousness, there is nothing that exists outside of consciousness (cannot be experienced in some conscious way). Everything has energy, nothing exists without energy. Everything exists within our universe, there is nothing "outside" our universe. If God is everything, then God cannot be just one thing. If God is everything, God must also be nothing. This is because once something has encompassed everything it loses it own attribution. I can't go looking for consciousness and non-consciousness because everything is conscious in a sense. I cannot seek it out and grasp it. It is the underlying component to everything. Someone might say then "What? Are you crazy? A rock isn't conscious so how does it exist within consciousness?" Well. A rock can only be experienced in a conscious way. I can't experience a rock without myself being conscious. If I knock on a rock it has a response. It makes a sound. Also what many people fail to understand about energy is that a rock is not solid, but rather the molecules that form the rock are moving so fast compared to my molecules that I cannot move through it. We evoke hardness from the rock simply because we are soft. The rock isn't hard, it's just vibrating extremely fast. In this way you may come to realize that everything is actually conscious and form a deeper and more appreciative understanding of life. With this, one might conclude that: A. The universe is "God" B. Consciousness is "God" C. Energy is "God" D. "God" is anything that has no outside I say "God" because I don't like the stigma around the word as it presents a dualistic concept of the ultimate reality. P.S. These are just my thoughts and also reflections on Alan Watts' teachings. Feel free to find loopholes. Also this isn't to attack religion or anything, just a thought experiment for you

Hey everyone so I've seen many people upset with the delay in loading in posts. I discussed this with @ottman and you have to realize the first post that refreshes fairly quickly is what you're seeing for boosts. If you scroll down a touch everything in your regular feed won't refresh below that one post at the top. I think many people misunderstood or missed that. So this is the reasoning :) Cheers!
