Brief suggestion on philosophy and science of consciousness. And to complement the following discussion on panpsychism https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfAhup-fDYs should be redefined, evolved, or expanded philosophically as:
"The essence (i.e. potentialities of possibilities) of nature is everywhere and in everything. Consciousness is everywhere but not in everything"
Consciousness implies aspects of mind which implies aspects of awareness which implies process of being and becoming or process of emergence through the process of interaction, evolution, and optimization of nature essence (wholeness or universal intertwinement and entanglement of infinitely finite fractal parts with infinitely infinite fractal parts of sum of parts of the greater in the local and non-local cosmos (i.e. timeless dependent and interdependent origination. And dependent and interdependent arising arisen wholeness process philosophy or wholism process realism)). In simple words, interaction of fractal parts potentialities of possibilities of sum of parts potentialities of possibilities of the greater whole gave rise to infinite potentialities of possibilities or the whole is far greater than sum of its parts. Another way of saying is individual and collective self-realized and self-actualized process.
Wholism process realism means wholism process epistemology and ontology. Wholism realism implies both material (or physical) and immaterial (or subtle physical) or immaterial simply implies presently not observable and unknown rather than does not exist (such as dark or immaterial matter and energy or spectra-field. Does not exist implies non ontology. And therefore, non epistemology. However, if an entity exists, then it must have an ontology and complementary or epistemology whether such entity is part of the greater or the greater whole) as well as related or interdependent and interconnected information processes and mechanisms for dynamic, transformative, and continuous emergence of form-formless or many body-system rather than dual, reductionist, fragmented, stoic, and non-process material philosophy and science.
