this is as provable that there is a matrix as depicted in the movie. i was trying to visualize how we might actually all might be a part of the same consciousness. i don't know if this is what some call the christ-consciousness grid. suppose that hawkins is right and consciousness can somehow be related to numbers. human consciousness can arbitrarily be translated into a number from 0 to 1000. hawkins says there is a maximum human consciousness and it's 1000. examples of people over 995: buddha, christ, hawkins. if you are in a state of universal unconditional love (agape), that's around 540. enlightenment starts at 600. the reported average consciousness level is 207. 600 appears to be 4 times 200, but since this scale is logarithmic (or should i say exponential?), it's actually much more than 4 times as much. anyways, i was thinking about how we might be all apart of the same consciousness grid (one might call the entire grid God if they feel like it--they might also call it the easter bunny if they want). imagine an isotherm map. overlaid on a map there are lines of constant tempuratures. this is like what happens when you picture ocean depth on a 2D map. you can draw circles of constant depth. within the rings, the depth increases. if there are many curves close together, that means the change in depth is rapid. if the curves are spread out, the change is gradual. here's my idea. roughly speaking, the ocean is like an awareness barrier. from an island, you can't see ocean depths. in fact, if you look out you might see other islands. in fact, those islands are all connected in a way that can't be perceived because of the ocean. the ocean corresponds to consciousness 0. anything below that we can't perceive as being conscious. a rock might have consciousness level -10,000. the higher consciousness level would correspond to either taller islands or islands of more area (doesn't really matter). on a map, one could draw the curves of constant consciousness level. particularly important curves are c=0 and c=1000, the is the awareness barrier (below which, things aren't *perceived* as conscious) and the maximum human level. if a c=0 curve is a circle on a map and there are curves with c>0 inside the circle, that means that circle encloses a conscious person. if you go here: http://www.ma.iup.edu/projects/CalcDEMma/vecdcalc/vecdiffcalc21.html , you'll see what i mean. the first picture is a bunch of level curves. randomly pick one of them and pretend it means c=0 and within that circle is a detectable consciousness. you can also pretend that there is another white area maybe three inches to the right which would represent another human standing three feet away. the main thing is that the whole consciousness field is connected and continuous.
