In the April 2017 The Searchlight "President’s Message," Alan Hugenot said: 

"There is now overwhelming scientific evidence that consciousness itself is the basic building block of the universe. Literally, to say this in terms of Quantum electrodynamics, 'quarks are made of thoughts and are held together by gluons made of love.'"

He translated this understanding to not that consciousness must have existed from the beginning, and that

"The highest principles of our own consciousness must have been present from the start of the universe. We do not so much evolve, as we devolve upwards towards our pre-established destiny.

"Consequently, what we invent is not so much 'created' as it is 'discovered.'”

I agree in concept, but it concerns me that the president of our organization is making such a strong claim for what many people consider quantum mysticism. I would at least like a reference for the "quarks are made of thoughts and are held together by gluons made of love" part.

There is also reason to think that evolution is one of the organizing principles. If so, then what Rupert Sheldrake calls "creative solutions to environmental problems" in his Hypothesis of Formative Causation would suggest that consciousness is also evolving. It seems more likely that we are actually evolving reality by creatively imagining new solutions.

The credibility of this organization rests on continuing demonstration of discernment. Perhaps a discussion of these ideas will further that.

Thinking in terms of "As above, so below," I am looking for examples of current thought in science that is suggestive of how the greater reality might behave.

My assumption is that physical is an aspect of etheric, so I am looking for current thought, that would suggest etheric characteristics.

Examples are:

Morphic fields are by definition, etheric and suggest the functional characteristics of life from the etheric perspective.

A growing understanding in mainstream psychology that perception is unconscious and awareness is only the product of the unconscious process. The suggestion is functional areas one would look for in a life field.

James Carpenter's First Sight Theory extends that unconscious processing to psi functioning.

Any ideas?

I have included a diagram that illustrates where I am so far.
