...the universe is neither static nor dynamic - the very division is a construct. The universe IS - it is all things, at once, chaos: the sum of all possible orders. Time is not a ground in which the universe sits, it is a ground in which WE sit, and we - from this vantage - can't see past that limit. Of course there is no change without consciousness - there's nothing to change. Consciousness [will] is not a product of evolution, it's a precursor to incarnate existence.
