Is Consciousness an Organizing Force in the Universe? A Hypothesis on the Nature of Consciousness and The Relevance of Consciousness in Medicine

Carolyn Williams-Orlando, PhD



Is consciousness an organizing force in the universe? 4 fundamental forces have been described as governing our universe: gravitational, electromagnetic, and the strong and weak nuclear forces, while a fifth force has been speculated to exist. Supporting evidence for the hypothesis that consciousness is an organizing force is found in the sciences of yoga, parapsychology (psi), and quantum physics. The relevance of consciousness in healing and medicine is discussed. (Adv Mind Body Med. 2021;35(4):4-8.)
