This post is more speculative as it’s something newly unfolding that is incomplete and I don’t know of other references yet.
As a being, we experience life from here. Our point from which we view the world is stable. Even if we “astral travel” or move within dreams or consciousness or become infinite, we still come back to this point, these senses in this body. We could say our experience is tethered here.
From a perspective of universal consciousness, Self is aware of itself both globally and at every point within itself. When we’re awake, we can say we’re global awareness experiencing itself through one of these points. The awakening unfolds this to direct experience.
However, the entire process of consciousness unfolding to itself here is through this one point of reference as a human and its relationship to the whole.
Yet our body embodies the entire universe*, the entire creation, every point within global consciousness, the cosmic body of all bodies, and is an embodiment of the totality of pure divinity.
We could say once the one point is aware of its nature fully, then the other points can come on-line. Understanding this requires a shift in perspective.
Our body is full of life-forms. It is made up of about 37.2 trillion cells in an average sized body. 240 billion make up a liver. 35 billion build the skin. 2 billion for heart muscles. And so forth.

— talk title by Dr. R. Keith Wallace
All of these are life forms with a point of awareness. And as it turns out, all of them can awaken!
In other words, while we’ve been experiencing from just one point, the very body we inhabit is the totality.
Cells awaken very much like this point did. They light up and there can be a kriya (sensation, movement or other release) or experience triggered.
The stages of expression of each cell suggests they go through similar stages to what we do. In fact, we can say that someone else waking up is another cell in the cosmic waking up. There is no others here.
And yet it would seem there is a further stage of development that can embody all awakenings in one form. Curiously, it looks like such a person could embody an awakening that is not yet embodied by the apparent person who it’s unfolding to.
Just think about it – everything you’ve heard about the value of enlightenment.
Now imagine what that means if there is not just one point awake but thousands of points, or millions or billions more awake in one being.
Boggles the mind.
Note: molecules and subatomic particles are mechanics of expression not life.
