In a 2018 article for the Journal of Consciousness Studies, philosopher Bernardo Kastrup postulates that every human being is a personality taken on by a cosmic consciousness. Everything in the world today is a physical manifestation of the thoughts and feelings of this consciousness. Our consciousness as humans can only access the outside boundary of this cosmic consciousness, which prevents us from changing the laws of nature, or hearing the thoughts of others.

Instead, we are part of a much larger whole, and that our existence has a purpose.
