I just read this and I wondered about it How are consciousness and energy related? We have three options: (1) Consciousness is a physical form of energy (even if it is very, very subtle energy); (2) Consciousness is a non-physical form of energy; (3) Consciousness is not any form of energy. (1) Consciousness as a physical form of energy: If we say that consciousness is a form of energy that is physical, then we are reducing consciousness (and spirit) to physics. And few of us, unless we are materialists, want to do that. (2) Consciousness as a non-physical form of energy: If we say that consciousness is a form of energy that is not physical, then we need to say in what way psychic energy differs from physical energy. If we cannot explain what we mean by “psychic energy” and how it differs from physical energy, then we should ask ourselves why use the term “energy” in any case? (3) Consciousness is not any form of energy. Our third alternative is to say that consciousness is not a form of energy at all—either physical or nonphysical. Unlike energy, which is some kind of “stuff” that spreads out in space, consciousness isn’t made of “stuff,” and is not located in space. If this is true, then consciousness would not only be different from energy, it would be nonlocated.
