Is the universe conscious? At this stage, it is still unclear. Whether science will live up to the test and prove the nature of consciousness once and for all remains to be seen, in the meantime it’s worth considering all the strange possibilities that wait in store for future research and study. The ancient philosopher Plato believed in what he called the “World-Soul”, some Hindus believed that the universe was a living illusion from a powerful god and many neopagans believe that the earth has a conscious spirit they call “Gaia”. Even Christian thought evokes the idea of a pervasive “Holy Spirit”. Many modern, secular and even scientific arguments have been made for it as well. Whether you are religious or not, chances are at least one of these three arguments will make you think twice about how you view the world around you.

I find this article very interesting. It has my very tired mind trying to think knowing that when my brain gets rested up, it will be very interesting to see if my thoughts will be the same.

I hope to get back to this article with my thoughts if my thoughts are still with me after I take a nap.

Makes sense to me. :)

This is my favorite pursuit, but I wonder if it even matters.

That depends on what you mean by "does it matter." It matters to me because it is fun and interesting to think about. But I think I know that you are wondering does it matter as to what is going on in this rather bleak world around us that is only becoming more and more bleak. In that regard I understand your point, it don't really matter.
