The Gaea Thesis asserts that our planetary biosphere is a single vast living organism, known to all peoples as Mother Earth. Such a complex organism must also possess a concomitant global consciousness, which many feel is on the verge of Awakening. But is Gaea really the greatest level of consciousness beyond our own? How many layers of consciousness are there?
The latest developments in quantum theory suggest that nothing above the level of the primordial quantum field has any physical reality at all. Rather, biocentrism and simulation theory propose that the world of our experience is an emergent and evolving simulation, much like 2nd Life, or the Matrix, in which we temporarily inhabit very realistic avatars. Only consciousness itself is truly real and eternal. Let’s consider the implications…for magick, theology, and immortality.
