To place such a thought within and outside of the physics of consciousness would call for defining thinking as the active element.

Cosmic intelligence suffuses everything. This is no simile — it is, in effect, the quintessential purport of our life and existence. It is also the foundational compass for all things to begin and progress. It’d, therefore, be apt to call this intelligence’s substance “mindful wisdom”, or conscious awareness. You’d call it the divine entity, or the core of our being, or god, that resides within us too. The equation is simple — there can be no intelligence without the divine substance within us. There can, likewise, be nothing without its all-embracing presence.

To place such a thought within and outside of the physics of consciousness would call for defining thinking as the active element. This is unlike thought, which is passive. Any living substance, or entity, that thinks is blessed with vitality, also vigour. Add to this intelligent, thinking action, or act, you are a part of the “rock band” of the spheres. Thinking is also a psychosomatic function, while thought isn’t such an energetic entity. This is precisely because any function that is labelled as “function” ought to be endowed with motion — this cannot emerge without thinking.

It is a given that most philosophers assert that thought is expanded stillness and thinking its intelligent corollary. The fact is it is our intelligence that makes it possible for the movement of energy in our mind/body. You’d call it your personalised, archetypal kinetic wave of motion. This is also the upshot for a glut of signals in the brain to absorb the “fire” lit through thinking and propel its “intelligent engine” to drive our thinking patterns for a purpose. To cull a philosophical allegory, our intelligence permeates our entire body, every cell, tissue and organ. It also pervades everything in nature — more so, because nature is exemplified intelligence. It is rightly said that nature knows more than we all do. It also knows all things, big and small; the minute and the most complex too. Nature’s knowledge, unlike us, is not restricted; it is, in more ways than one, comprehensive.

While it is agreed that our mind, from the beginning of time, has been in touch with all things, its knowledge is yet restricted within and outside of us. This corresponds to our so-called “complete” knowledge base, including life experiences, among others — of things we know to a certain extent, each in its own manner. This may be contrary to the divine experience, or essence of god, which encompasses all the things that have occurred ever since creation — right from the “‘big bang” — although it celebrates the idea that there’s intelligence in all things, far and near. As the Rig Veda exemplifies, “Let knowledge and noble thoughts come to us from all sides”.
