In other words and on a much lesser scale, the same as a piece of rock.
So how does one derive consciousness from a piece of rock?
Interestingly however, in their book 'The Living Energy Universe' (1999) by Gary Schwartz and Linda Russek (both Ph. D's) they demonstrate that everything in the universe is alive, eternal and evolving.
Seems even science has its esoteric viewpoints.
Also another interesting book 'The Universe a Vast Electric Organism' (1903) by one George Woodard Warder (who was a very pious individual by all accounts), claims just what the title infers ie:
"Electricity produces all the phenomena of nature; Electrical creation;...Man is a soul clad in air, a spirit in an eletric organism;...Present science is in a dubious and chaotic condition; Love is the electric law of life;...etc."
We sure live in interesting times.
