    My thesis is primarily about the ontology of consciousness. I prove that consciousness, otherwise known as the soul, is an uncategorized dark energy and force of life that is polymorphous, expressible as biophotons of light as well as waves. Like light, dark energy displays quantum activity, and also manifests as light. The constitution of consciousness as dark energy is radical because it also explains why waves change to photons in the presence of consciousness. Dark energy is surmised by physicists to be Einstein’s cosmological constant because it shapes the relativity of spacetime. In place of classical physics which cannot be used to study quantum energy, I use the approach of cosmophenomenology to study the ontology of consciousness. Cosmophenomenology, a term first coined by Danish theologian and philosopher K.E. Løgstrup, is used to describe an approach that extends the traditional phenomenology of Edmund Husserl to include the relation between human beings and reality as a whole (nature) from the point of view of the universe, rather than simply human-to-human relations. I am using cosmophenomenology to specifically discuss consciousness as dark energy, and the necessary relation it has with quantum mechanics, alterity in Husserl, harmony in Leibniz and Goethe, and multiple worlds, topics which either phenomenology or cosmological physics alone are inadequate to account for. The First Thermodynamic Law states that energy neither goes out of being nor comes into being. Consciousness is not dependent on the existence of matter, space, or time, although it interacts with these variables. I compare the continuation of consciousness after death in the Orch-OR theory of Sir Roger Penrose and Stuart Hameroff with that of the monadology in Leibniz. Both theories concern the inscribing of consciousness as quantum information in small structures called microtubules/monads, which allows this information to pass on into different realms after death.
