    The question was asked by Krista, member of our YATU forum. Thank you Krista!


    “If a unified theory is within consciousness,
    Why then does it remain elusive?

    Like a tree becomes a book
    You can take the book from a tree
    But you cannot take the tree from the book.

    Consciousness can exclude a unified theory,
    But a unified theory cannot exclude consciousness.”

    This question is a hot topic in science and I am looking forward to hearing what our community thinks after watching this video!

    Thank you Deepak for a beautiful description of why a unified theory remain unresolved. The ontology of mainstream science leaves the very fundamental piece out to understand the concept itself, consciousness. They are stuck in looking at the map without realizing the territory. The universe is consciousness and it’s contents (qualia)! Just like my favorite Rumi quote that I have hear you say before, “This is not the real reality. The reality is behind the curtain. In truth, we are not here. This is our shadow.”

    Much Love,
