I thought the poison problem comes from the top down, like with all the secrets in religion, politics, high finance. Why do the worlds biggest 2 religions seem like the lowest of cults. If I say the names I'll go straight to hell (which doesn't exist anyway), or be sentenced to death. No wonder I deal with God directly. Open your eyes , it's all about power and control, the worlds biggest problems. Love of power comes from the top down, power of love from the bottom up.

If matter and energy are the same and can be both particle and wave and the particle nature of consciousness (biology) ends perhaps consciousness continues in wave form (changed).

I agree.
