We are 3rd dimensional creatures. Science suspects the univers has many more dimensions. Science also suspects time doesn’t exist, a quote: “They insist that the most successful theories in physics prove that time does not exist”. Time might be a third dimensional construct. It’s hard to imagine other dimensions when all we know is length, width and height (physicality), like time all linear.
Modern science says consciousness is a fabric of the universe, and why not, clearly thought exists. They say consciousness is not a product of the brain but exists in its own right. At the quantum level matter requires perception to exist, to actualise a state. Modern thinkers consider altered consciousness, suggesting that in this life we are altered consciousnesses of the collective, obtaining our individuality that way, multiple personality disorder.
