... the most fundamental scientific ‘fact’ is not the existence of a universe of things in space and time but awareness of such a universe.
Awareness is not a ‘thing’ that can evolve from or arise out of an unaware or insentient universe of things. On the contrary all things in the universe emerge and take shape out of a universal awareness.
The Awareness Principle
Remain true to yourself, but move ever upward toward greater consciousness and greater love! At the summit you will find yourselves united with all those who, from every direction, have made the same ascent. For everything that rises must converge.
—Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
