Every life-unit thus, has an eternal I and an eternal paraphysical body/ structure that exists and operates totally independently of the temporary physical body. This means that life and consciousness are independent of the physical brain and body – and that the Subject/I is continuously and eternally able to create and experience through the immortal body, (where all experiences, abilities and skills are also stored).
The Cosmic Worldview describes the nature of consciousness and the perception process (the Reality-Consciousness Transformation Process, X-RCT Process) which comprises different “organic” levels and explains how and why we have subjective phenomenal experiences, qualia (providing a profound solution to the “explanatory gap” and the “hard problem of consciousness”).
Martinus and his collaborator Per Bruus-Jensen describe the aforementioned semiphysical and paraphysical structures and their processes which, side by side with the activities of the physical brain, constitute the foundation of our ability to experience, remember, think, feel etc. – in fact, of all activity within our consciousness.
The “I-perception”, the “central point” we refer to and express as “I”. One can find evidence for the existence of an eternal, immutable Subject/I within us by referring to the perception we have of being the same person throughout our life, even though our physical body changes and ages and our mind matures. There is something within us that experiences this and finds it strange that the body and the mind have changed so radically. You still feel that you are the same person now as you were when you were young. This is due to the fact that you are neither your body nor your consciousness, but you are the Subject/I in possession of your body and mind. Martinus states that one can come to this conclusion by analysis, for instance the fact that an experience cannot be experienced by another experience. We can also ask: Can a feeling or thought be experienced by another feeling or thought? If this is the case one may ask what the difference is between emotions that are experiencing and emotions that are experienced? …
According to Martinus, experiences imply the existence of an experiencer. The experiencer cannot be found inside the brain either, where only electrochemical processes can be observed.
An experience consisting of colours and shapes does not exist within the brain, but in our subjective paraphysical “space of consciousness”, i.e. in our personal and completely private world and reality. Experiences are immaterial phenomena only existing for the subject/ I (X1). This can be illustrated by the following: Close your eyes and imagine an apartment building of the same size as it is in reality. Now, where does this apartment building exist? It is too big to be inside the brain and also it cannot be observed through electrophysiological investigations. ‒ It is only to be found within the “non-local world of conditions”, not bound by space and time.
All life ‒ every life-unit ‒ comprises an I /subject with a double function; that of creator and experiencer. This is made possible by the fact that the I/subject has the ability to create and experience through an associated organism with an immortal paraphysical body structure. Taken together and very briefly expressed: all life consists of an indivisible triune operating principle (the triplementary principle X) that could theoretically be split into:
X1 the creator and experiencer, the subject/I
X2 the creative and experiential ability
X3 the created and experienced
