Infinite Consciousness - The Sentient Universe

Infinite Universal Sentience
Can it be?

In the world of the Sentient Beings it already is.

Just for fun... some really smart guys to watch:


David Chalmers' Ted Talk - Can all things be conscious?

In his Ted Talk,  "How do you explain consciousness?"  David Chalmers proposes the
 possibility of Consciousness not only being universal, but being in all things.



Neil DeGrasse Tyson's "Cosmos" - The Universe is infinite.

In the first episode of Neil DeGrasse Tyson's "Cosmos" he explains how scientists have
 come to an understanding of an infinite universe.


The Sentient Beings - Sentience as the consciousness that connects us to all things.

The Sentient Beings exist in Sentient Space that has no beginning and no end.  
The take forms in order to master the technology of the time and space they
enter into, which is always changing.  There are no limits of possibility
for the Sentient Beings, only stories to be told.

Sentience




Sentience is the ability to feel, perceive or experience subjectively.   Eighteenth-century philosophers used the concept to distinguish the ability to think (reason) from the ability to feel (sentience). In modern Western philosophy, sentience is the ability to experience sensations (known in philosophy of mind as "quailia"). In Eastern philosophy, sentience is a metaphysical quality of all things that requires respect and care. The concept is central to the philosophy of animal rights, because sentience is necessary for the ability to suffer, and thus is held to confer certain rights.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentience



Our lives at this time in history may introduce another "definition" or area to consider in the investigation of Sentience.  This is the area of "Sentient Potential" a field of study dedicated to the very important questions we may be facing in the not too distant future regarding future techonologies in brain-machine interface. 
I just happened upon the Sentient Potential Website while browsing the internet in my quest for understanding my recent obsession with the concept of Sentience.  In the website the term "Sentient Potential" is defined as:  "the potential evolution, development, and expansion of all intelligence and awareness, a concept that goes beyond “human potential” to encompass the entirety of living and aware beings." 


This new discovery on the internet has me thinking about this vision that has sprung from my subconscious in the past 6 months to become the focus of my work at this time.  The connection between nature and technology has once again entered into the concepts I am working out in images.  (see "The Magical Mystery Stones: June 2013 archives: Magical Mystery Stones )


Mind, nature and technology... the Sentient Worlds that will unfold in the ongoing stories of The Sentient Beings.  Stay tuned.....
