The Internet is a relatively new model of universal consciousness in which knowledge, or information, is readily available to anyone, anywhere. All that is required is a computer and a connection and one has instant access to a unified body of knowledge and the potential for interconnecting with everyone else who is on the Internet. The unified connectivity presented by the Internet has been long known to the mystic, who in meditation has access to a dimension of oneness in which everything is simultaneously present, and all knowledge is accessible. The experience of samadhi, or super-conscious state, happens on this plane of oneness. But the Internet presents a model of a unified consciousness that is accessible on a more physical plane, to anyone who has access to a computer.
The Internet is at present only in its infancy, but it carries the blueprint of its potential—a consciousness of global oneness and interrelationship that defies the barriers of nationality and geography. It is present everywhere at the same time. The Internet is not a hierarchical structure, and despite the desire of some companies or governments to control it, it is globally democratic. At the present time it is primarily used for accessing information and communication. But it has the potential to create patterns of interrelationship that will form the network for a global unity and consciousness. The flow of information through an expanded web of individual relationships throughout the planet will be like a cellular structure that comes alive and continually makes new connections. As these connections of both knowledge and people become activated, they will make further connections in a way that is very similar to how the brain activates and accesses information. At a critical point the interrelationships and flow of information come alive and begin to function as a unified field—a unified level of consciousness on a global level is activated.
Global Consciousness & The Role of the Internet
The internet is one of the most significant technological developments of the present time. Through the World Wide Web humanity has been given a tool for global communication and interconnectivity. Its use has become central to the lives of millions of people, businesses and organizations, linking humanity together in ways unimaginable a few decades ago. But how does it relate to the emerging consciousness of oneness? Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee gives a visionary perspective on the role of the internet, and how we are only beginning to understand its real potential.
