Of course, an individual consciousness can still only focus on one thing at a time, since that is a fundamental property of the individual consciousness. Only a higher form of consciousness can be aware of all things at all times and then only through the awareness of the individuals who directly experience the events. To such an entity, time as we know it is irrelevant, since events we perceive of as occurring in the past and future are equally evident to such a consciousness.
If we are Avatars of our higher selves then we are born in ignorance of our true nature. It is logical to assume that if we are purposefully incarnated our ignorance is the means to an end. It is my contention that we are born to a “blooming, buzzing confusion” so that we might acquire free will. If we were aware of our higher selves and their relationship to the God that I have argued is the collective consciousness of our higher selves, then we would already know what is expected of us as moral beings. In having the capacity to choose, together we create an infinity of possible realities both subjectively in the world we experience through our senses and in a higher dimension that our higher selves experience directly.
The only restriction on our creations of the various worlds in the Multiverse is that they correspond to the iron laws of logic. We cannot postulate and create a physical world or universe that is inconsistent with anything with which it is interconnected. Unfortunately, this cannot be said of the models of reality that we carry in our individual consciousness. That is why human society is fractured along lines of belief systems that artificially separate us.
It is only through the objective and informed examination of our personal model and comparison of it with those of others that we can begin to approach a personal model of reality that reasonably approximates objective reality. In the same way, the collective consciousness of humanity can only begin to correspond to objective reality if we are able to approach our differences in outlook in a genuinely loving spirit.
Some would object to the idea that God is a creation of our higher selves. To them, it is a fundamental tenet of their model of reality that God created the “angels” that are our higher selves. However, the observation that everything exists independently of time as we perceive it reveals that this is in fact not a paradox but a non-issue. The Bible says that God is the alpha and the omega, present at the “beginning” and at the “end” of time.
If all this is true then it is our task to recreate the conditions that gave life to Earth and perhaps other planets. Until we “return to the Garden” we are at risk of destroying all we have created, at least from our limited human perspective. All creation stories tell us that the world has been destroyed in our “past.” The Hindus tell the story that Shiva dances to this cycle of destruction and re-creation. At some point we can collectively choose to end this cycle by creating a world together where all live in a rational, sustainable world. This does not require unanimity of thought but a consensus that this is the world that we are going to create together. Such is the nature of democracy.
If God exists then we cannot exist independently of it nor it of us. The fact that our physics do not yet describe the process by which God and the world were co-created only tells us that a model that might describe the process has not yet been developed by theoretical physicists, not that it does not or cannot exist. All scientific theories start with observation alone. When known physics does not adequately explain observable phenomenon it means that the science has to change, not the evidence.
Death has been defined as the absence of change. In a living, breathing Multiverse free will is a necessary perquisite to life itself. This suggests that our ultimate purpose is to find a way that we can achieve a common understanding of how to live together so that the Multiverse itself can continue to evolve, conscious of its nature. This is just another way of saying that God itself will evolve and we as individuals will never die. I have tried to imagine what reality might have been like for a hypothetical before the Universe was created and decided that “In the beginning, God was bored…”
