Thoughts on consciousness

We are part nature part consciousness which allows us to detetmine  our destiny despite the laws that govern the material world.

 Laws of nature serve their purpose in a material context but there is a seperate dimension from which we observe everything.

We observe ourselves in a material dimension. Thus we observe our life as we observe our death from some other placce.

We observe both from within and from without for we are surrounded by consciousness that has no bounds.

Our consciousness is probably not contained by the brain which merely processesses information in relation to a temporary material state of being.

Consciousness like the universe is an evolving entity in its own right.

Wisdom of Einstein

[I do not] carry such information in my mind since it is readily available in books. ...The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think.

Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious.

Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding. You cannot subjugate a nation forcibly unless you wipe out every man, woman, and child. Unless you wish to use such drastic measures, you must find a way of settling your disputes without resort to arms.
