If animals and plants are largely made of water and water is conscious then everything that contains water has consciousness!
Thus consciousness is embedded in the molecules that make up the universe. To me this makes sense as I do not see how anything can be created unless the building blocks are aware of their function in construction or for that matter destruction.
A state of unconscious chaos can only create more unconscious chaos since it has no awareness of itself and therefore no capacity to structure itself into an orderly state
of any kind. A state of unconscious chaos would have to have awareness of itself to exist and since it has no such consciousness it cannot exist.
