SCIENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Can there be a science of consciousness that is real and substantive – with practical applications – rather than a mystical, feel-nice discipline that really leads us nowhere?
Obviously there can be such a thing when consciousness is an incredibly vital component of our daily lives. How can we master this consciousness and as more than a whimsical art?
For example, at the foundation of diabetes is a stark consciousness disease. We call it neuropathy. It manifests when a diabetic steps on a nail and can’t feel a thing. Understanding consciousness as a science could help us dramatically heal diabetes (which is presently considered incurable). We see this potential reflected in Gabriel Cousens’ new program that actually helps reverse diabetes within just 30 days. He applies consciousness principles.
Spreading and unnoticed cancer can reflect a consciousness disease. A person who understands consciousness could then help another and oneself overcome this scourge. I discovered this when I worked with Charlotte Gerson to help many patients reverse metastatic cancer conditions.
Alzheimer’s disease is still another consciousness ailment. Just dispensing wonder drugs generally doesn’t work. Quite seriously we then need a different kind of understanding and science.
A REAL SCIENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Thus if the presence and absence of consciousness is strikingly real for healthy and ill persons, then the knowledge thereof can help reverse our ill states of consciousness. First we need to know exactly “what is consciousness” to begin with.
I have tried to outline a certain powerful definition. Prior to grappling with this, it may be helpful to forgo any personal arrogance that assumes “consciousness” is merely a human attribute. Imagine instead that consciousness forms a a potentially universal relationship of connection in and throughout all of nature. Imagine also that this allows various microorganisms to have sentience. Imagine lastly that this consciousness co-habits with its opposite or unconsciousness. Exact knowledge of this “co-habitation” or how the two interact, can help us heal ourselves and revolutionize our personal lives and overall culture.
