I urge everyone to watch videos from Donald Hoffman, Roger Penrose and others about consciousness. Both talk of consciousness as non-local, as a dimension. Hoffman goes further, which is my view as well, that consciousness is fundamental and space/time/matter are essentially the user-interface surrounding consciousness. My own interest in the subject started years ago by first be confused with the paradox of the double-slit experiment (which has now been made further wacky by the delayed choice quantum experiment). It is now almost obvious that we have our own unique copy of reality. In fact, we have known that for over 100 years since Einstein's SR; time slows down for every part of 'our' reality as we accelerate or get closer to heavier objects. Since reality is personal, then it cannot be fundamental. Anyway, I love thinking about this.
