Does that 'group mind' consciousness that exists in molecular habitats that hold together cellular structure and programming universal through all things, even humans which compells us to feel or act in certain ways that we just call natural instinct?
I've pondered this a bit. It's fairly far-fetched thinking but it's just a cellular theroy about humans I've had.
basically if everything down to subatomic particles act on a certain path or way and they make up more complex organisms that are to act and follow a certain path or way, then that 'group consciousness' is utterly all connected. This connection would be a slight compulsion to act or behave or to do different things in a preprogrammed form of patterns.
This compulsion to act I feel is what many would call Nature in animals or plants and what People call God's will.
Human's are not an evolution, we are a mutation with the bi-product of 'self'
Consciousness of this 'self' made possible through our intellect has over-written the more primitive 'group consciousness' and left humans with a disassociated existance in refrence to the natural order of the world as we know it.
We don't 'just exist' because we are conscious that 'we exist' therefore our minds through this mutation tends to counteract most natural acts like getting older, dying through seies of 'self' survival, gratification, preservation.
(this gets even deeper)
Ok, forget christianity and all religions even though I might refer to certain examples to explain my trane of thought.
Assume that anything couter-productive to this 'Will/programming' of this 'group consciousness' widens the gap betwen it and the 'self' and causes some form negative effect. (Christians call it 'sin')
There isn't really anything evil about it, mankind just uses generalized terms to comprehend what is happening.
Taoists follow the Tao (or The way) which somewhat closely explains better what I feel this 'will' to be. They describe it's likeness to water and flowing with it's currents everything moves in harmony but to change path within it is like going against the current. I this on a primitive level humans achknowledge this shift and react emotionally in various ways by feelings or fear, guilt, anxiety, regret, anger, etc. Mankind, through knowledge of self, has essentially become the true God's of the earth because we have become seperated from what we were and exist only for ourselves.
(I'm jumpin around a lot..bear with me through this incoherant babble)
Ok, Most people do not experience anything but the 'self' consciousness because they are 'normal' human beings with the evoluted minds. Naturally they'll feel basic instinct responces to general situations 'protection of young, compassion, empathy' but I think that there's a few different types of people that are still able to experience the deeper levels of consciousness because they are wired a bit differently.
People with ESP have a greater sensativity to things
Schizophrenic people also have adapted minds because there are places in their brains that weren't constructed correctly at birth and the electrodes had to be re-routed to function using different parts of the brain.
I feel that these people have a greater experience of said 'group consciousness or will. Schizophrenics have a slightly more enhanced experience because of the different wiring process and I feel that this is why many become crazy because they cannot deal with the 'realities' they feel that people tell them are not normal. They are basically torn betwen a battle between two consciousnesses fighting for superiority.
At the first acknowledgement of this 'will' One instinctively repells from it out of selfish preservation. By accepting the 'will' one would essentially be losing 'yourself'
I think the verse 'The closer to God one becomes, the more difficult the battles one faces" rings true in this aspect for the more closely you asociate yourself away from 'self' the stronger it fights for domination causing greater emotions. I believe this is also why 'deny theyself' is the only true way to follow God (or the way for Taoists, jesus for Xians...whatever) By denying the 'self' you are essentially submitting to the 'group consciousness' that exists in all things.
Ok it's extremely late. I could write a book on this. I just wanted to lay out some trippy thoughts for the night.
It all may seem incoherant bullshit. basically in my cellular theroy I look at the embodiment of ALL existance as the 'host' and we are merely 'cells of mutation' in it. In that scenerio it might come clearer. If anything I managed to waste 15 minutes of your time.
What's you're point?
Seriously, your post is about as incoherent as one of mine. That's not a good thing.
I mean, what are you referring to when you say "group mind"? Like, Cell_A does this while Cell_B
does that, and they all live happily ever after? Or, do you mean that because the cells that make
up my leg were shredded to pieces by a wild Romanian, I feel the pain those cells feel as I am
nothing more than a bunch of cells linked together?
And there's that whole "will" thing... don't feel like it.
