The earth is in motion. The earth's motion is the concept of self?
As the earth is in motion, we are always in motion. Since we never have a lack of motion, we never have consciousness.
You're posting in a physics forum. Don't be surprised when people expect you to use words with mathematical precision.
I like using words with mathematical precision and posting on a forum like this means I'm always refining my points when they are not fine enough to be understood. Yes we are all in motion but if you're running down the road, does the scenery around you look as clear as when you are standing still? Can you see as much of it, when you are in this 'relative' state? This isn't rocket science but observable fact as I say. A car on the sidewalk is stopped in relation to the planet it is on, so yes it is moving with it but not at a different rate. It is still in relation to the planet's motion as a part of it, rather than moving at a different rate over the surface.
Simple experiment: Stop and look out the window, if you're mind is not chattering away what do you see? Now allow yourself to get carried away with daydreaming about your favourite hobby. Do you see the outside world now or only images in your head, accompanied by verbal soundtrack?
Life is defined by motion. Even molecules and atoms are in motion. But do planets all move at the same speed? What about increased temperature and motion, plus decreased temperature and motion (Pot of boiling water)? Does this relate to the idea of being cool headed and in control of your life versus being hot headed and not in control of it (reactionary, rather analytical)? How about being studious and working in libraries (Silence and stillness encouraged) versus sport and being active (Noise and motion encouraged)?
Consciousness is I believe caused by slowing down motion as unconsciousness comes from action. When we slow down we see what was (solid matter / the past / memory). When we speed things up we dream what could be (free energy / the future / imagination). By 'real' I mean solid (objective) and by unreal, I mean unformed energy or potential (subjectivity), which is why I liken it to Quantum Mechanics (Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and Schrodinger's cat). As an analogy think of a volcano - the lava is undefined & unformed potential (the unknown) and the cone is layers of defined history ('dead' certain / known). I don't think I can make it any clearer than that but perhaps I'm wrong?
