Many leading physicists are waking up to the realisation that the traditional seperating of "matter" and "energy" is simply not feasible.
There is widespread abondonment of "particle" theory physics . . . and that sub-sub-atomic particles are simply energy waves presenting a "particle" illusion that is completed by the five human senses interpreting energy as physical (matter).
Once you get your head around it . . . it means the physical world is simply energy in a spatial environment. Even early physicists such as A Einstein regarded this as a likely scenario.
The understanding of "Consciousness" has also moved beyond seeing it as purely the result of electrochemical processes in a purely organic sense. Electromagnetism also invokes brain response and electromagnetic energy is in turn produced by the brain. This type of brain activity occurs without conscious thought and can operate outside of traditional physical boundaries.
For example; A mother is busy in another part of the house from her young baby daughter. For no discernible reason the thought pops into her head to check on her daughter. When she does so she finds her daughter unknowingly about to engage in something dangerous. What preceeded the conscious thought? Before you think this is a rare phenomenon . . . think about how this works for you during the course of a day . . . you might be surprised.
A similar connection may exist quite strongly with identical twins. Anecdotal support is widepread for this phenomenum.
