Plasma is the most common form of matter in the universe, making up 99 percent of the known universe, including our sun and the stars.
Several renowned scientists - including David Bohm, Marcel Griaule, Germaine Dieterlen, Paul Dirac, Peter Mitchell, and Chandra Wickramasinghe - have proposed that plasma may be intelligent, exhibit sentience, or at least act as a medium through which consciousness may manifest itself. Bohm was a physicist who developed the “implicate order” theory, which proposes that reality is a unified whole where physical objects exist as interrelated patterns of energy. Griaule and Dieterlen were French anthropologists who worked in West Africa and studied the Dogon culture, which has a sophisticated mythology that includes references to extraterrestrial influences and advanced knowledge of the Sirius star system. Dirac was a Nobel Laureate in Physics who made important contributions to the study of quantum mechanics. Mitchell was a Nobel Laureate in Chemistry who developed the chemiosmotic theory of energy transduction in cells. Wickramasinghe is an astrophysicist who proposed the panspermia theory, which suggests that life exists throughout the universe and can be transported from one place to another in the form of microorganisms.
Somehow all these scientists honed in on the idea that the entirety of the universe may be conscious, and the sun itself a neuronal link in its architecture, the node that feeds and collects everything we experience, feel, do, and learn on this planet.
Just an idea to entertain when you observe the next sunrise, to give it an extra tinge.
