In the material universe we know, through science we have discovered all kinds of natural laws. But suppose we discovered that consciousness itself is more fundamental than matter, or that consciousness can exist independantly from the physical. I have heard people say that science would collapse and we would be thrown back into the dark ages of sorcery, witchcraft and voodoo. But is it possible that there are natural laws present within consciousness itself according to which it behaves? Or are we then really in the domain of complete uncertainty? For example: I believe all conscious beings (at least humans) try to have pleasant experiences. Can we then conclude that a natural law within consciousness is the urge for itself to experience pleasant things?
