Y'know... I was listening to Tom Campbell a bit the other day, and I had a thought that proves his concept that that physical body and brain simply exist to provide constraints to our consciousness while experiencing this reality.

The thought was that...
If you accept that everything (including all beings here) are consciousness, then what makes (for example) a dog a dog?  Or a human a human?  Everything is consciousness, so something determines what you can do and what you limitations are...

The answer is actually very obvious and simple... it's your physical attributes.  What makes a human a human is our physical-ness.  Our brain.  Everything about us.
What makes a dog a dog?  The everything physical about them.

We're all the same consciousness...

What makes this really stupid is that I'm not even sure why this is a surprising statement to make.
What makes a dog a dog?  What makes a human a human?  WELL NO DUH XANTH.  LoL

The kicker is that you have to first accept that everything is consciousness.  This is a step a lot of people simply refuse to make.  Once you make that step, everything else begins to fall into place.  EVERYTHING.

This actually proves Tom right.

You are exactly right, everything is consciousness. I was shown this by a layer of eyes in all directions in everything that my eye's looked at, probably one of the freakiest things I have seen. I would even go on to say that the floor, the table, your laptop and so on is as much aware of you as you are of it. Just that its in a state of agreement of experience as what you said could be a dog, human, etc... When astral traveling all our intentions manifest in-front of us instantaneously, same goes with the physical. Accept that because its a physical experience we are always in the state of becoming and thus we are experiencing the change of our intent in a much slower pace. We are truly powerful beings to come here and place such limitations on ourselves. Its funny, we constantly tell ourselves that we all are spirits and that we all are one. But most times these thoughts become a funny thought to hold on to and never really become a integrated part of us. They just become cool philosophical ideas to think about once in a while.

What makes a human a human is awareness. What makes an animal a animal is instinct.

I found the process of accepting that the exposing of the illusion to be extraordinarily painful. I'm glad I went through it but when the veil was ripped so to speak it was a very not only very enlightening but the feeling of being exposed was difficult to handle then everything manifesting as i go. smiley

I have experienced this state of just being "I am" self awareness of self without any boundary conditions, without any body awareness nor any thing present.
The void is devoid of all things. The Universe is really just YOU, SELF.
Yes, all is consciousness, self awareness that is still, formless, dimensionless, ONEness.

The word "Consciousness" actually means Con = together  Scio = (Latin) I know, to know  Ness = state of being, IS
Please note that the same root word SCIO are in the words, ConSCIence & SCIence.

Also "Gnosis" (Latin & Greek) means I know, to know.


I have been studying Walter & Lao Russell's material including the book: The Secret of Light and their Home Study Course .
I am currently on Unit/book 10 - Home Study Course.


Walter explains the following principles:

KNOWING. DIVINE - UNCONDITIONED LIGHT. LOVE.
There is only ONE CAUSE, CONSCIOUSNESS/ SOUL - the still unconditioned, undivided LIGHT. Knowing Divine Light of Mind. God.
Consciousness is all that is.
The Universe is a thought-wave Universe of you Mind idea, like a Cinema simulating your imagination.
The myriad effects of Creation of MIND KNOWING is but an illusion.
Creation is but an electric wave record of thoughts.
Your Soul is that desire manifested by Mind into the material image of your thinking.
 
SOUL - DESIRE - THOUGHT BODIES
The Divine conceives and thus knows of the complete ONE idea in Mind.
The desire to express the ONE idea is focused on points of desire which is the SOUL desire to expressed units of that ONE idea in form; thought bodies.
So each thought-body is centered by the SOUL seed of desire to unfold by polarisation,
that unit of idea [the positive visible image - compressed short spiral wavelengths]
such as of man, oak tree, or sun into the seeming Universe of motion and matter;
then refold that thought-body-pattern into [the negative invisible image  - expanded long spiral wavelengths].
The thought-body does not die nor really disappear, it is just that the electrical awareness of the material body
cannot sense the longer and slower wavelengths of the thought form body that is presumed to have died/passed on.
The thought-bodies have depolarised to the negative cycle [recorded & added to by Mind in black cubic wave-fields. Cumulative record of all cycles of the thought-body],
to be polarised again and reappear as material bodies [concentrated into white spheres - basis of material form].
This Polarity reversal & cycles is never ending.

Analogy, think of photography.
The black negative image recorded when "printed" by white light emerges the positive image -
your material body (which is really multiplied, concentrated thought-bodies).


THINKING - DIVIDED LIGHT:
Concentrative Action (Positive Electricity/Father expression) & Decentrative Action (Negative Electricity/Mother Expression)
The Desire to express the idea is the motivating force that seems to divide the ONE into halves. Electricity - Polarity +ve and -ve.
+ve. Concentrative thinking manifests the idea of LIFE through multiplied action, constructs bodies (compressed waves),
charges & is centripetal direction pulls inwards toward the centering SOUL. Gravitation effect. Inbreathing, day, alkaline expression. Polarisation.
-ve. Decentrative thinking manifests the idea of DEATH through divided action, destructs bodies (expanded waves),
discharges & is centrifugal direction pushes outwards away from the centering SOUL. Radiation effect. Outbreathing, night, acid expression. Depolarisation.

Man's electrical senses cannot KNOW, it is only aware of electrical interactions, the effects.
The Brain does not KNOW is a sensing instrument which records man's thinking & actions.
Depolarised enough, body awareness disappears during meditation as vibrations cease, rests (zero-point) to ONEness.
Man's senses have been limited so that man can be convinced that the illusion is real.


DIVINE TRINITY
THE ONE DIVINE knowing mind through thinking seems to divide the ONE still light into pairs of opposed condition (+ve and -ve)
to manifest the idea of life & death in never ending cycles of MIND idea. All is life.
The visible & invisible universe is achieve through balanced interchange of the two thinking/actions/expressions.
This applies to all man because all is really connected, all is ONE, one Soul, only Mind.


For anyone interested in REINCARNATION explained, Walter-Russell's Home Study Course - Unit 10
is dedicated on this subject.

I agree that everything is consciousness, but I don't see how 'what makes a dog a dog' is proof of that

It's not proof of everything is consciousness.  "Everything is consciousness" is what you need to accept to understand what makes a dog a dog and a human a human.. 
The physical limitations which your these meatsacks provide us with is what it proves.  Smiley

Is there any evidence from OBEs, channeling, psychic mediums etc. that once we and our pets die, that our pet's consciousness is now just as expansive as ours?  Just curious!  Of course our consciousness will be expanding as well.

I guess I've read about one medium that said our pets have life contracts with us in order to help us grow.  Also heard of some people that say they can talk to their pets telepathically and it's basically just like a human conversation. (I suppose I never took that extremely seriously)

The times I met my deceased cat OOB, she was still her same self (although I could have been the limiting factor communication-wise!)

If our bodys/brains are the only difference between the consciousness of dogs and people, wouldn't animal spirits make contact with us from the 'other side' just as much as people spirits?

I'm just thinking out loud now and confusing myself! lol   Interesting subject...

To me, animals are part of the "one" as much as we are.
As such, all of the stuff that we experience, they experience as well.

The big question in my mind is how far does that consciousness extend?  Does each individual ant have a consciousness?  How about mosquitoes?  Fruit fly?  All insects?  Worms?

What about going micro?  Is bacteria consciousness?  Or is it just something that helps support the physical reality model?  Does a bacteria really exist?  Or does it only come into existence when viewed?  Such as in a microscope?

In the end we all end up with the same teachings, when we become conscious we may learn things differently but we still learn the same things, that's what makes our personality.
Dogs/cats are definitely conscious beings.
Insects and microscopic life is to a certain point but to me it's only like a reincarnation into a lower vessel until you start understanding that you can even see things.
like it's just a way to inform you of something. Then you're on to the next stage till you become fully aware, like a cat or a dog, or even birds or really any animals which use their ears, eyes, nose, mouth etc...
then you just reincarnate till your actual system is booted up if we can say? Just like a computer, you install the components before installing the Operating System right?
In my opinion you must not even feel pain until you're an animal
We squish bugs and don't feel really bad about it, I still squish them and tell myself well I don't like that bug but well I'll squish it maybe it'll go to the next stage?
Just a way of thinking for me.

I love animals tho they understand what love is. Just to imagining the tremendous amount of reincarnations/work it must involve to get to that point is just... wow!

For me, it all comes back to the natural order of things and it's pretty simple: there is a hierarchical process to consciousness, it's all in various levels of development/evolution. That's why I personally have no problem reconciling God with evolution. God or Source, has to work through some process or processes, why should that exclude evolution as one physical component? As just the only component? Maybe there are several aspects working at once, including evolution and direct intervention. Physical and spiritual...

We squish bugs without much thought because they slip back into the automatic process of animal regeneration and Life. We could do better, with a little thought, but it's pretty simple and straight-forward at that level, so we don't mind too much, stomping bugs. With higher animals, we take a little closer notice because they are a higher order of complexity and development. We take them on as pets, and they become something more. Taken a bit too far, we hold funerals for them...Maybe that's good for our kids to attend.

Animals kept as pets do, in my opinion, take on some human qualities such as love, compassion, shared sadness, aggressive defense, humor and embarrassment, to name a few. These are not just anthropomorphic projections, they are demonstrable and repeatable. That begs the question of, What is the next evolutionary/spiritual development for this animal consciousness?

I think the greater beauty of our multiverse allows for all of this.

It appears the cold blooded species are incapable of emotions as they don't possess a nervous system  as we do. Correct this if you know otherwise.
The term is used in a derogatory way to describe a lack of positive emotions in human nature.
The next level for cold blooded creatures is assumed to be the move to warm blooded.
As we are top of the food chain it's also assumed to be true.
Such a large change must involve more than first thoughts.
Crocodiles are cold blooded and considered nasty. Being ectotherms they take heat from their surroundings to move efficiently.
It makes you wonder if we are doing the same with our conciousness by enteting the NP environments.
We hear of the odic force, life energy etc. This comes from the environment and perhaps its just nature showing us a fragment of what's to come.
