Who says that the eternal has to have any consciousness to begin with. Didn't we all come from Stardust?

Wont we all be going back to stardust eventually? Isnt that eternal?


  1. If we have temporary, it’s reasonable to assume we’ll have permenant.
    (What would make it go away and at the same time preserve us?)

  2. Many religions say it must have a consciousness. Further, they think they can negotiate with it.
    There is only nature. We came from it, and we will “return” (we never really left) to it. There is nothing else.

  3. Consciousness is the ability to use the intellect. God is Conscious of everything because he is Conscious of his Self. If you are aware of your Self you do not need to know anything else in life. There are two types of consciousness, Empirical Consciousness which is aware of sensory things like sight, speech, taste, touch, smell, and also intellectual things like history, math, sciences, but there is Divine Consciousness which is the art of Meditation, to experience the Truth within yourself, which appears like a Light within your being, and when you lift yourself even higher and free your mind from all things, you enter into that realm beyond all realms, you can not even see yourself through the senses any longer, your mind has reached Nirvana, complete peace and Eternity.

  4. Atmospheric dust…our bodies are made up of elements found on the earth.
    But, yeah, consciousness seems to leave after a person’s death.

  5. Yes, technically we all came from stardust.
    “Recognize the very molecules that make up your body; the atoms that construct the molecules are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars, that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other-biologically. To the earth-chemically. And to the rest of the Universe-atomically. That’s kinda cool. That makes me smile. And I actually feel quite large after that. Its not that we are better then universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the Universe and the Universe is in us.” ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson
