that he would be adverse to saying that consciousness creates the universe.
In this sense he would only be following in the footsteps of quantum luminaries as
Max Planck and Erwin Schrödinger who considered that consciousness is
fundamental. Consciousness in other words is not a product of the material
evolution of biological species. But if this is so it means that biological as well
as mental evolution is a reflection of the evolution of consciousness and not
the other way around.
Think about this for a second because it is here that you have the connection between
quantum theory, consciousness and the rise of civilization on our planet. I do not think
anybody will contest that the rise of a civilization requires a change in the human mind
or that the human mind is an aspect of consciousness. But if consciousness is fundamental
this means that not only biological evolution but also the mental evolution that has resulted
in the rise of civilization. For anyone interested in the rise of ancient civilizations the question
to ask will then be "What is the nature of the evolution of consciousness?" Does it evolve according
to specific rhythms or is the process randomized?" The Mayan calendar which is the only
quantum calendar of our planet holds the answers.
