Consciousness is the unfolding of ever-present information within the vacuum of spacetime, like a forever-emerging memory or an endless string of deja-vu’s. It is the becoming of awareness of what is. Every now moment of your life is such a memory, enlivened like a lit torch. The light of each torch is then carried forward at light-speed throughout the cosmos to one day touch future civilizations billions of light-years from here and now, their matter taking form from your light. They are you and you are they. What has passed will be and what will be has passed.
