Enlightenment simply means an experience of your consciousness unclouded by thoughts, emotions, and sentiments. ……
Enlightenment means, being fully conscious, aware. Ordinarily we are not conscious and not aware. We are doing things either out of habit or out of biological instincts…
…….When one is enlightened one is conscious, but one is not conscious of consciousness. One is perfectly conscious, but there is no object in it. One is simply conscious, as if a light goes on enlightening the emptiness around it. There is no object; there is nothing the light can fall upon. It is pure consciousness. The object has disappeared; your subject has flowered into totality. Now there is no object—and hence, there can be no subject. The object and subject both have disappeared. You are simply conscious. Not conscious of anything, just conscious. You are consciousness….
…He is not conscious about enlightenment; he is simply conscious. He lives in consciousness, he sleeps in consciousness, he moves in consciousness. He lives, he dies in consciousness. Consciousness becomes an eternal source in him, a non-flickering flame, a non-wavering state of being. It is not an attribute, it is not accidental; it cannot be taken away. His whole being is conscious. ….
- Existence or Consciousness is the only reality. Consciousness plus waking we call waking. Consciousness plus sleep we call sleep. Consciousness plus dream, we call dream. Consciousness is the screen on which all the pictures come and go. The screen is real, the pictures are mere shadows on it.
- The reality which is the mere consciousness that remains when ignorance is destroyed along with knowledge of objects, alone is the Self (Atma). In that Brahma-swarupa (real form of Brahman), which is abundant Self-awareness, there is not the least ignorance.
The word “Quantum” means small. Physics is the study of the physical universe.
“Traditionally, at least in the past sixty years, science increasingly has looked upon all reality as based on the primacy of matter; matter is everything, and so material interactions cause everything. Material interactions start with the elementary particle submatter: elementary particles make atoms, atoms make molecules, molecules make cells, cells make the brain. And the wisdom is that the brain is the producer of consciousness and all the higher inner world. It’s all due to this upward causation from the level of the elementary particles going upwards to the brain, to all these appearances.
Looking affects objects according to quantum physics. But if consciousness is a brain phenomenon as materialist science posits, the observer effect is a paradox because then brain and its consciousness both consist of possibilities only. Possibilities acting on other possibilities cannot make actuality; try it and see.
Imagine possible cars in a car lot. Also imagine possible money in your bank account. Now imagine hard and combine the two possibilities! Do you expect a car manifesting in your garage?
The resolution of the paradox is to turn the materialist view of consciousness upside down. Let consciousness be the base of the world and let matter consist of waves of possibilities of consciousness. Consciousness chooses from the possibility waves of matter within it to collapse the actual events that we observe.
Note that in every event of observation, there is the object the observer is looking at and a second object consisting of the observer, a brain. Before observation, before collapse, both are waves of possibility. When consciousness chooses, only then the brain is actualized along with the external object as experiences, as appearances in consciousness. Consciousness identifies with the brain due to a specialness of the brain, a specialness that makes an object with a brain an observer. This conscious identity is what we call the self, what we experience as a subject looking at the collapsed object. Consciousness, the chooser, transcends both the immanent subject and object.
In this generalized science within consciousness, upward causation gives us the waves of possibility to choose from; downward causation consists of the act of choice. Both modes of causation are incorporated. And there is no dualism; the subject-object duality is seen to be an appearance! ”

You are like a pebble, thrown into the center of this field of energy. The other circles are ripples, coming out from your own consciousness. But these aren’t ripples of water. These are waves of thought.” - (Darin Deterra, PhD)
The particles that make up the Universe are now separate and expanding, but energetically, we are all still linked. Everyone on this planet - all life and all physical existence - emerged from a single point of oneness and unity. We all come from and we are all still a part of one unified, quantum field of energy.
In 1944, Max Plank identified the existence of this Unified Field. He called it the Matrix. He believed that, underlying everything we can see, our bodies included, there’s an intelligent and conscious mind. Gregg Braden calls this the Divine Matrix. I call this Source. Others call it God. Whatever you call it, the Divine Matrix is much larger and infinitely more powerful than the Global Matrix that rules your material existence.” - (Darin Deterra, PhD)
1. Introduction to Quantum Consciousness By Darin Deterra, PhD.
The Quantum Activist tells the story of a man who challenges us to rethink our very notions of existence and reality, with a force and scope not felt since Einstein. This film bridges the gap between God and Science. The work of Goswami, with stunning precision and without straying from the rigors of quantum mechanics, reveals the overarching unity inherent in the worlds major religions and mystical traditions.
