When you fully immerse yourself in the present moment and observe the nature of your being, you may notice an extraordinary sense of vastness, stillness, and peace.
This gentle experience is an awareness of your consciousness.
Your consciousness connects you to the infinite universe, space, and time. It is the true *you.* (Discover more foundational consciousness knowledge in my Wholistic Guide To Consciousness!)
Non-local consciousness is the idea that consciousness is not limited to individual brains or bodies but is instead a field of energy that is interconnected and shared by all beings.
Scientific evidence of non-local consciousness is a major breakthrough because it confirms that we are all connected to each other on a deep level. Proof that our thoughts and actions can have an impact on others, even if we are not physically interacting, can help the world become more compassionate and unified in love.
In this blog, you’ll discover:
There is no scientific consensus on whether or not non-local consciousness exists, but there is some compelling evidence to support the idea.
To understand non-local consciousness, we must first address the concept of non-locality. In the world of quantum theory, non-locality is when nearby electrodes share electrical signals with the ability to affect far-away electrodes. (1) This idea connects to a bigger concept in quantum theory where objects seem to instantly know about each other's conditions, even if they're really far apart. It's like the universe plans how particles should be arranged, even across huge distances like billions of light-years. (2)
The concept of non-locality transcends disciplinary boundaries, showing up in diverse fields including physics, biology, and neuroscience. Scientists have published studies in respected science and medical journals that together suggest something interesting: consciousness might not be limited to a physical body and doesn’t cease to exist upon physical death. (3)
A study out of the University of California was just published last month showing that when electrical signals passed between neighboring electrodes, they also affected non-neighboring electrodes. This is evidence of non-locality – an important step in creating new devices that can mimic brain function. (1)
There are parallels between the concept of non-local consciousness and quantum entanglement in physics. Entanglement means that the quantum states of particles aren’t independent but part of a system. However, many neuroscientists remain unconvinced by the connection between quantum theory and the brain.
Scientists with a materialistic worldview would argue that the conscious 'you,' the one experiencing things, is simply a side effect of the brain – a result of the brain producing consciousness similar to the way endocrine glands produce hormones. The physicalist theory suggests that the brain is doing its job and when the brain no longer functions – consciousness ends. (4)
One of the most illuminating scientific resources out there with abundant discussion on nonlocality is this 2018 review paper published in the American Psychologist by Etzel Cardeña. Some highlights include: (5)
The implications of non-local consciousness include that we are all part of something much larger than ourselves and that our actions have a ripple effect that can be felt by others. This can be a powerful motivator to live life to the fullest, stay heart-centered, and look out for the wellbeing of the collective.
The scientific study of consciousness is still in its early stages, and we are only beginning to understand the right questions to ask. It will be interesting to see what new studies come out in the next 5 years or so as more researchers gain the resources and funding to explore non-local consciousness further. (6)
In many ways, non-local consciousness is an alternative framework to explain the unexplainable. There are countless remarkable instances where consciousness seems to extend beyond the physical brain and body across space and time.
Here are 10 examples of non-local consciousness. Perhaps you’ve experienced at least one!
Have you personally experienced any of these phenomena? Occurrences like these continue to spark curiosity and debate in the field of consciousness studies. The matrices for these experiences could not be contained in the brain, so must be stored in some kind of immaterial field or in the field of non-local consciousness. (8)
Even if we can’t definitively prove that consciousness is non-local, if we can learn more about the non-local aspects of consciousness, it would have a transformative impact on our world.
