Q & A: Is the universe knowing and conscious?


Only the Universe can give a reliable answer to this question.

As it hasn’t told any human directly we can only make a guess.

My own feeling is that in so far as every entity in the universe ceaselessly follows mathematically precise laws, and the universe is also periodically creative (formation of stars and planets, emergence of life and consciousness) here and there now and again, it does seem to be laws-knowing and laws-obeying, and therefore behaves as if  its is conscious.

But it is difficult to believe (at least for me) that the knowledge and consciousness are of the same kind as the ones we humans have.
