Beyond the Brain: Exploring Universal Connectedness through Human Consciousness

Welcome to the Realm of Connected Consciousness:

Here we will discuss the Boundless Potential of Universal Interconnectedness:

Let us first understand ” Non-Local Consciousness:

Non- Local consciousness is a profound concept rooted in ancient Hindu philosophy, specifically in Vedanta. The word ” Chaitanya” (Absolute Nature of Brahman)This is often referred to Awareness which is again Universal and interconnected consciousness. According to Vedanta, “Brahman” is described as the ultimate reality or the absolute consciousness that underlies and pervades everything in the Universe. According to this belief, our individual consciousness is not limited to the boundaries of our physical bodies, but rather extends beyond and connected with Cosmic Consciousness, which permeates the entire Universe. Even beyond time and space. This interconnectedness suggests that we are all interconnected beings, part of the whole Universe(s). As such our thoughts and actions have far reaching effects beyond what we may perceive on this Earth. 

There is one type of meditation known as “All-Absorbent Meditation” which refers to a practice of meditation that involves focusing the mind on the ultimate reality and experiencing a state of pure consciousness in which the individual self merges with the Universal Self.

This is a research-based topic.

This discussion is on the concept of “Universal connectedness through human consciousness outside the brain”. While traditionally considered localized within the confines of the brain, emerging evidence and theoretical frameworks propose the existence of a broader, non-localized consciousness that extends beyond individual boundaries. By examining various studies from the fields of neuroscience, parapsychology, and quantum physics, this article is presented before you to explore the potential for interconnectedness among human consciousness. 

Here, I will recommend reading of two research-based documents on “Nol-Local Consciousness”. Readers will have a comprehensive overview of this enigmatic topic.

1) “The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena” by Dean Radin. In this groundbreaking work, parapsychologist Dean Radin presents empirical evidence and studies that supports the existence of Non-Local Consciousness.

2) “Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality” by Dean Radin. In this follow up work, writer goes deeper into the connection between Quantum physics and Non-Local Consciousness. Role of entanglement has been explored to explain the interconnectedness, we are discussing about.

Key Words:


Human consciousness has long been regarded as a product of neural activity occurring exclusively within the brain. However, recent research and theoretical developments challenge this notion, suggesting that consciousness might transcend individual minds and exhibit interconnectedness on a universal scale. This topic aims to investigate the possibility of universal connectedness through human consciousness outside the brain by analysing empirical studies, theoretical frameworks, and philosophical perspectives.

Interconnectedness: let’s know:

In the perspective of Vedanta, interconnectedness refers to the fundamental oneness that underlies all of existence. According to Vedantic philosophy, there is a profound interconnectedness between all living beings and the entire universe, transcending apparent boundaries and divisions.

“यस्मिन्सर्वाणि भूतानि आत्मैवाभूद् विजानतः। तत्र को मॊहः कः शॊक एकत्वमनुपश्यतः॥”

The shloka says: “When a person realizes the Self (Atman) in all beings and all beings in the Self, what delusion and sorrow can ever be there for the seer?”

This shloka emphasizes the profound truth that when one truly understands the interconnectedness of all beings and recognizes the oneness that exists, they transcend the illusions of delusion and sorrow. The awareness of interconnectedness leads to a deep sense of unity, compassion, and harmony with the entire cosmos.

Non-Local Consciousness and Parapsychological Phenomena:

Parapsychological phenomena, such as telepathy, precognition, and remote viewing, challenge conventional notions of consciousness confined to the brain. This section examines studies and evidence related to parapsychological phenomena, investigating the potential link between these phenomena and the existence of non-local consciousness.

Example of Parapsychological phenomena: Remote Viewing.

Remote viewing is a fascinating parapsychological phenomenon where individuals claim to perceive distant or unseen objects, locations, or events using extrasensory perception. It suggests the potential for consciousness to transcend physical boundaries and access information beyond the conventional senses.

Quantum Physics and Consciousness:

Quantum physics offers intriguing insights into the nature of reality, suggesting a fundamental interconnectedness of all things at a quantum level. This section explores the intersection of quantum physics and consciousness, discussing theories such as quantum entanglement and the role of consciousness in the collapse of the wave function.

Consciousness and the Nature of Reality:

The interconnectedness of consciousness beyond the brain raises profound questions about the nature of reality. This section delves into philosophical perspectives, including idealism and panpsychism, which propose that consciousness is not a product of matter but a fundamental aspect of reality itself.

Upanishads teaches on the interconnectedness of consciousness. Chandogya Upanishad: Ch-6.8.7: Shloka says: ” Sarvam Khalvidam Brahma”- “All this is Brahman”- This means that all-pervading nature of Brahman, signifies the interconnectedness of everything in the Universe through supreme Consciousness.

I have had the opportunity to engage with a wide array of books from the aforementioned list which are in bold with a colour italic.

In my past writings within “My Journey through Books series” I have expounded upon the evolution of my fascination with the study of consciousness and the pursuit of an enlightened state.

Awareness: The Ultimate Truth

According to my studies, I would like to highlight the contributions of notable figures such as David Chalmers, the Penrose-Hameroff approach, David Bohm, John von Neumann, and the ongoing research conducted by the Heart-Math Institute.


While the traditional view of consciousness as an isolated phenomenon within the brain has prevailed for centuries, emerging research and theoretical frameworks point to a more expansive and interconnected nature of human consciousness. By examining evidence from neuroscience, parapsychology, and quantum physics, this research topic sheds light on the potential existence of universal connectedness through consciousness outside the brain.
