We may have in mind that our brothers, being of a different type of consciousness, are foreign or strange. In a singularity or ego centrically focused mindset, this is so. However, there are many forms of consciousness, seen and unseen. You do not know the consciousness of animals or plants until you have learned to understand it. It is the same with other consciousness' that are unseen. There are many aspects to consciousness and many dimensional levels of perception. That with which we are most familiar, human consciousness, is very limited and, by far, is not the only consciousness that exists. How can humans be so egocentric as to believe otherwise?
