We studied philosophy, so we all know about the concept of consciousness and matter. Consciousness determines matter and matter also affects consciousness. But the problem here is which came first, just like the question of whether the egg or the chicken came first.
To answer this question, let’s consider the following points:
What is the matter?
Matter is all the things that we see, touch, feel with our senses. The properties of matter are perishable, insoluble with time and have a certain lifespan.
Life expectancy is a concept that refers to the time that the matter can exist in the nature. Different matters have different average lifespans. The smaller the mass of the matters are, the longer they can survive. Of the elementary particles, only four particles do not decay into other particles, called stable particles (including electrons, photons, neutrinos and especially protons) .Notron is an exception. , has a long life. All remaining particles are unstable particles and decay into other particles in the range of 10−25s to 10−6s.
It is scientific evidence. Thus, we see that matter is something that is always changing, not eternal, not immortal.
What is consciousness?
Consciousness is something that cannot be measured with the human senses. People say that consciousness is the soul and our body is matter. It’s the same as an opinion in Buddhism that the soul is immortal, eternal and everlasting. Continuously rotating in samsara, karma, or maybe in nirvana, we no longer have samsara. Experimental science is not currently able to prove this. But I believe that in the future, we will be able to confirm this with scientific experiments.
What is the problem that we cannot decide whether consciousness or matter came first?
Immortality is something that exists throughout time. The necrosis is what arises, ceases and changes. So I’m sure that immortality must come first, or the consciousness precedes the matter.
So from the prehistoric time, when matter has never existed, only consciousness exists, what creates consciousness? This is a difficult problem because we are talking about an inconceivable point. It is the God.
It’s just my personal point of view so that we can have a look and think together. Of course, my opinion still has many issues that are not fully understood. But I feel it is somewhat reasonable in terms of logical thinking. If you have different views, please share them.
“RESUMIND” is an amazing upcoming product of Alan Ai Voice Lab company. This application helps people a lot in self-development. It will help us learn while sleeping (dreamy brain waves) and arouse strong daily energies through sight and hearing.
