I was talking to a friend about this and thought I would write this down. We were discussing about the dimensions parallel worlds etc and I remembered I had seen a video which explained what a each of the 11 dimensions string theory says are. This leads me to a slightly different idea about what consciousness is. Have been postponing blogging about this for a while now and decided to write it down today.
What if consciousness is the ability to travel between universes and not just the three that we know we regularly do? And what if the unit of measurement for consciousness is the number of universes that we can travel between? Let me put down the framework for my theory. We might already be traveling through regularly and not even know it.
Okay, enough questions, time for some explanation of my theory (well not actually a scientific theory because scientific theory needs theoretical proof which I don’t have at this point)
Imagine a multi-verse of all possibilities – every single one of the possibilities exist connected by threads of varying directional strength. To explain what I mean by directional strength, consider me (Thej Siddhotam), trying to type one random english alphabet after this sentence. D. I typed D there correct? Let’s call the possibility universe where I was deciding what to type ‘ALPHA. Now imagine that there were 26 different possible universes where I typed a different English letter. And all these 26 possibility universes branch out from the possibility universe where I was deciding what to type and are strongly connected to it. My consciousness for whatever reason, moved to the possibility universe D. Essentially what I am trying to say is consciousness is nothing but a choice engine that allows you to move between empty shells of possible universes that are strongly connected. My consciousness in the above example was only aware of 26 strongly connected possibility universes in front of it and then chose to go to the possibility universe D. I also mentioned directional strength – while the universes A, B, C, D etc are connected strongly to ALPHA, ALPHA isn’t strongly connected to any of those. So while my consciousness travels with ease from ALPHA to D, it’s not easy for it to tread backwards. Similarly, all the possibility universes are connected to each other but extremely weakly. My consciousness isn’t even aware of them let alone travel to those universes.
Now, that I painted my picture of consciousness and multiverse, let me attempt to go to the next step about measuring the strength of consciousness. My consciousness, however strong I consider it to be is only able to recognize the 26 universes ahead ALPHA. But if I was someone who had a powerful consciousness, I could travel to weakly connected universes too – this involves simple scenarios like
- Teleportation: Finding a possibility universe where my body is at my destination but everything else is exactly same and then jump to that universe.
- Time Travel: Going in reverse direction to a possibility universe which I already have been to.
And really complex scenarios like
- Going into mythological realms (I don’t see why they aren’t possible in a multiverse)
- Being able to look at all the possible universes and jumping into the ones that are convenient for me and so always leading an extremely happy life and immortal
To summarize: Every possibility universe is just a snapshot of all dimensions. Consciousness allows you to jump from each of these snapshots each of these jumps can only pass through when there is a strong connection between these universes.
