Nexus Theory (long form = Endogenous Light Nexus Theory of Consciousness)
Nexus Theory is a mechanistic theory of consciousness developed by this Meetup Group's Organizer, Dr. Karl Simanonok. It describes how consciousness could inhabit our brains through the interaction of two kinds of light. Dr. Simanonok is presently seeking to experimentally test Nexus Theory, the only extant theory of consciousness by the way that is capable of being tested in the laboratory.
Summary of Nexus Theory:
a) Every living cell gives off light at low levels ('endogenous' light = 'from within').
b) Endogenous light is functionally organized to form a dynamic holographic structure called a Nexus in your brain's cerebral ventricles that resonates in real time with the brain's neural hardware and can in turn feed signals back to that hardware to influence neural activity. Mechanistic details are described at light.simanonok.com
c) Because light interacts with and interferes with other light, your time-bound Nexus becomes an interface to what physicists refer to as 'virtual' photons, 'energy of the vacuum', or 'zero point energy' filling the universe outside our normal time-bound frame of reference in what we might call eternity, where time as we know it does not exist.
d) The vast sea of virtual photon energy filling the universe is also dynamically holographic in nature and where an intelligent higher consciousness resides as a fundamental property of the universe, saturating the universe at every point.
e) Dividing a hologram into smaller parts creates smaller holograms containing the whole original holographic image, although losing detailed resolution the smaller they get.
f) The small volume of about 150ml in the cerebral ventricles available to form a Nexus thus enables a very small portion of the larger holographic consciousness filling the universe to inhabit us, and that very small portion is what we experience as our personal consciousness.
g) Thus we all spring from the same source but because of our biology we experience an illusion of ourselves as individuals (ego), when in fact we are all drops from the same ocean of light living multiple illusions of separateness. Every yogi, holy man, spiritualteacher and prophet throughout history has taught that we are all One in spirit with a unitary higher consciousness living in and through us, and this is how.
