Computer metaphor

Today’s Seth (and the Lazaris metaphor I cite below) show us a bit of what it’s like when everything is constructed out of consciousness.  It is an oxymoron that organized religion states that “God” is omnipresent, etc. yet they draw the line at the obvious implication that the very physical constituents of our physical being are also consciousness.  

This reminds me of the book “The Lazy Man’s Guide to Enlightenment” which came out decades ago.  In it, the author likens our conscious mind and ego to being the mayor of a vast city … the body.  Seth takes this idea a lot further - right down to the elementary particles that constitute our being … and beyond.

Lazaris has also used a computer metaphor to describe the intended function of the conscious ego.  If we think of the psyche as a desktop computer hooked up to the internet, then the ego is the I/O part of the computer, namely: a 3D physical display and the system to input commands.  The subconscious is like the program running on the computer while the deeper "unconscious" is the internet connection with everything and everyone else.

Here, Seth takes the computer metaphor one step deeper.  The computer itself is aware of its very construction and function ... which of course would then mean that it's components themselves would be conscious and aware of their constituent consciousness and function ... which in turn would themselves themselves be conscious and aware ... and on and on it goes ad infinitum.

Hence the idea that we are gestalts of consciousness ... both in terms of manifesting physical form, but also in terms of our psyche - other lifetimes, other probable lifetimes, other realities etc.

“As I have mentioned many times, animals then dream, as do plants, insects, and all forms of life.  All molecular constructions exhibit that certain kind of introspective activity, as if the inner working of some giant computer was intimately in touch not only with its own programming and the probabilities connected with it, but with a deep psychological awareness of the activities of the electrons and various visible and invisible particles that form its own physical construction.”
