“Only when your consciousness is totally focused on the moment you are in can you receive whatever gift, lesson, or delight that moment has to offer.” – Barbara de Angelis

Consciousness is Information?
Asked to define consciousness in a recent interview, Physicist Tom Campbell opined that “consciousness is an information field, consciousness is information, reality is information…”, he then went on to talk about the difference between our own individual experience of consciousness (what he called, “little c consciousness”,- “that’s kind of like our local awareness, if you will.”) and “Big C consciousness, which is the larger consciousness system.” Tom goes on to explain more about that, but we’re going to focus in today on the notion that consciousness is all about information.
What do we mean by that? Well, from our own perspective, consciousness is our experience that we are aware of, true? We sense the world “out there” through our sensory organs and means and then we put this all together in our mind to experience what is all around us, and even what’s inside us. Tom seems to be saying here that this experience we have is smaller and more finite than, say, all the knowledge of the universe.
The interesting thing about what he’s saying is that there is a greater presence of which we are part of. He’s not alone in that assumption, through the years great prophets in history have told us that and modern day inventors have sworn that the ideas they’ve come up with were not manifestations of their own thoughts, but rather that their gifts came from a Greater Power, a source not within them.
Do we mean that they are just crediting God for their inventions? Well, some did and do, and others didn’t or wouldn’t phrase it that way. What is a common central belief is that they believe and did believe that they found a way to tap into a form of universal intelligence. What would we call intelligence? Intelligence is information, and to be considered intelligence, it must necessarily be organized and accurate information. That is, ideas “in-formation”
If there is such a thing as a “greater consciousness system”, and we are ourselves having a somewhat finite experience of our own, then it’s also possible that we have at least a certain amount of access to that greater system, right? Perhaps we should take a look at our availability and accessibility to it, and any underlying techniques that may assist us in expanding our “little c consciousness” by expanding our awareness. If we are after success in life, wouldn’t an inquiry into such techniques be worth it?
Here’s where the rubber meets the road, and we’ll talk about how to increase our changes of success based upon some proven techniques. See you soon!
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
“If I’m aware of a certain number of things today, how can I expand upon that?”
