I’m more confused by this. Conciousness means aware experience so what would self awareness not as as we know it involve?
You are making a PMR point of view assumption about the definition of consciousness. Our entire reality arises IN Consciousness. And Consciousness (capital "C", not the small "c" of Tom Campbell's AOU) is all that exists ultimately, and it is absolutely infinite and never changing. This is where I differ from Campbell's Big TOE. He says AOU evolves and is only APPARENTLY infinite and one. Then it isn't ultimate and True Reality! I'm only part way through the trilogy and keep waiting for him to introduce an Ultimate Reality that transcends AOU but he doesn't. If he believes AOU is Ultimate, I disagree.
So you are the changing and finite aspect of the infinite and unchanging whole.
MBT doesn’t claim to explain the nature of GOD. I’ve never been able to find anything that can explain the nature of GOD. As far as I can tell, there is no way to know other than to know the Self as fully as possible, but as the Self is always changeable and can choose, ‘this or/and that’ it must always exclude something from itself in order to define itself as itself. Otherwise there is nothing to ‘see’.
Perhaps the nature of the Absolute(GOD) is that it has no free will and exists at the unquestioned behest of its subsidiaries. Unconditional Love?
If you want to read the most profound Teachings on the nature of "God", read books by Adi Da Samraj.
I guess I wanted My Big TOE to explain the nature of Ultimate Reality ("God") but I guess you are right and it doesn't.
