The following statement by a Zeta represents the view expressed in various ways in the book, “A primer of the Zeta race”, that all that exists is a form of consciousness.
Zeta: All life, all forms of existence have consciousness. All are a form of energy which exists and transmutes to each new state after its transition. All energies, when moving to form will choose what form they take, whether it be animal or mineral, there is full consciousness of the form they have taken, and the ramifications of that existence.
Taken by itself, it says that the form of consciousness that is the soul is no different from anything else. However, the following two quotes say that the soul is in a class different from all other energies of consciousness.
Zeta: The nature of the soul in its own understanding, its own container, understands that by its own nature it belongs to a class of energies. This class of energies remains as a whole form, one entity, broken into many forms, many existences.
Zeta: The soul belongs to a class of energies which distinguishes it from all other conscious entities in the universe. It is self-aware and understands its distinctiveness. The soul is multifaceted and incarnates in many states of being in many realms while still remaining one entity.
Here they say that the soul belongs to a special class of energies different from all other classes. Further, it understands that it belongs to this class. That is, it is self-aware and understands that it is different. Self-awareness seems to be what makes it a unique form of consciousness.
The following interview fragment questions the uniqueness of the soul as a conscious entity, but appears to allow an interpretation that is consistent with the blatant statements of distinctiveness given above.
Interviewer: We as beings have a consciousness that belongs to a special class of consciousness that is self-aware, that is what we have been told…
Zeta: All matter has consciousness. Your table as you say cannot speak. Why is that? Does it have a mouth? [Interviewer: no] Does it have the organs to support a connection process? [Interviewer: it does not] So how would it communicate with you?
Interviewer: I would conjoin with it?
Zeta: Yes, and so now, you believe that there are different levels of consciousness, but if you were, for example a stone, a crystal stone, are you able to communicate with this entity? You see, human beings believe that if you cannot speak or somehow indicate your intentions, then your level of consciousness is in some way different to them.
Interviewer: To my mind, what distinguishes us from inanimate objects is the nature of the consciousness that they contain.
Zeta: No, I will say to you that these supposedly inanimate objects are conscious things, and that the difference is in the level that you communicate with them, as you are only a construct of matter as they are a construct of matter.
Interviewer: Yes, at the level of matter, but at the level of consciousness there is supposedly a difference. We have been told that there is a special class of consciousness from which souls were derived, and this consciousness has self-awareness. It knows that it exists.
Zeta: There is self-awareness, yes, but I think this is a little bit complicated, and we are using a very simple work. Your table is aware because it is made of matter, and matter at its basic level is consciousness. It cannot communicate because it does not have the required physical components. I cannot in some way speak to the table, although I can sense the table as you can sense frequency from a stone. If I was to hold a stone in my hand, or a table or a chair or any other item, I would receive information from the energy of the item.
This conversation was part of a discussion concerning the separation of articles of matter. The Zeta insists that an object like a table consists of the same energy of consciousness as living beings. We humans see the table as having a different class of consciousness only because it does not have the physical structures that would enable it to communicate with us.
But then the Zeta said, “There is self-awareness, yes, but I think this is a little bit complicated.” This suggests that he intentionally did not include the concept of self-awareness in the discussion, ignoring any attempt by the interviewer to include it. He was speaking only of awareness in this conversation, and not self-awareness. That is, the consciousness that is the table could send energy to another entity even if the table did not have the structures needed for communication. But for some reason he did not consider that its ability to know that it was doing so was relevant to the conversation.
This interpretation appears to explain the apparent contradiction in the Zeta’s comments about consciousness and the special nature of the soul. Although all things are consciousness with the potential to interact energetically with other aspects of consciousness, not all have the the ability to be self-aware. The soul is self-aware, and in that sense, it is a unique energy of consciousness.
