Panpsychism might offer clues to "what makes me"
NBC News just carried an article about pan-psychism, or the idea of a “conscious” universe.
Consciousness in humans and advanced animals results from the interaction of quantum fields withint the extremely tiny spaces of “microtubules”. It also results from the idea that something has to be observed to exist. The observer fixes uncertainty into specificity.
The article postulates that stars could have rudimentary consciousness, to the point that they can vary their own rotational angular speed or revolutions in their galaxies.
All of this will fit into my plans on my novel “Angel’s Brother” which I have been discussing on Wordpress.
