The universe is my mind; my mind is the universe.

-Lu Xiangshan, 1139-1193

Science is unable to explain how consciousness and a sense of self emerge from insentient matter. According to many Self-realised teachers matter emerges from consciousness and Selfhood. Until science recognises the Self as the substrate of the universe, from which things emerge, and not as an emergent property of the universe, it will not solve the problem of emergence.
