Scales of Life

Universal consciousness can be considered as one considers their own body. In the same way a human is the result of individual cells and neurons communicating, the universe is also the result of parts, such as animals or plants, communicating through the fundamentally same physical laws and properties which apply to the cellular world which makes us. So as a cell, if capable of introspection, could consider itself an individual and the body its universe, we know as the resulting net process of many cells that the product of the communication of individual parts leads to the feeling of an integrated whole. And so in the same way that cells are simultaneously individuals and a whole, we too can consider ourselves not only as a mere part of, but also as the entirety of, the organism that is all of reality.
