The Totality is infinite, unbounded, mind appearing as sentient (conscious) or non-sentient (unconscious).

Such human hubris to judge the [infinite] consciousness of God or Totality as being one of consciousness and unconsciousness. When can there be a moment when Infinite Mind is unconscious? You are not alone in this most limited and human-centric view of Infinite Mind, it is the ruling view here on the Genius Forum.
Cathy Preston: There is no judgment involved, how conscious are you when you sleep? how conscious are you of your bodily functions. The Totality can't be the Totality if it isn't the appearance of you too, otherwise it would be the Everything but movingalways and movingalways. Two separate things, no Totality.
How conscious are you when you sleep?

But, in order to be so, there can no moment when the Totality is unconscious. Rest is not unconsciousness. While I sleep, as you so correctly pointed out, my heart remains beating, does it not? How can That which beats my heart, be unconscious? How can That which moves my dreams, be unconscious? Understanding the Source to be unconscious, and then, to be conscious from this unconsciousness, is not only very poor logic, it is insane thinking.

And, if the Totality is the appearance, the world, and the appearance, the world, is the Totality, how will you overcome it? Also, it was you who said "Something higher is calling each of us every moment, it's the degree to which we believe in the world that we miss this calling." If the Something is calling, how can it be unconscious, and how do we stop believing in the world if the Totality is the world?

Cathy Preston: I think we've beat this horse to death, now we're just going round in circles, my words just creating confusion. I will leave you with this; When we think we know everything we cut ourselves off from new understanding. Like pouring water into a full pitcher, it just flows around, wasted.
