Fringe scientists suggest consciousness is a fabric of the universe (Hoffman, Kastrup…), and why not since it unquestionably exists. They say consciousness is not a product of the brain but exists independently in its own right. It’s proven in entanglement theory that at the quantum level matter requires perception to exist, consciousness to actualise a state. These thinkers consider altered consciousness suggesting that in this life we are that, altered consciousnesses of the collective. We obtain our individuality that way. Multiple personality disorder.
