I must state that I am not an intellectual in the sense of being a scholar with a lot of facts, but please do not disregard any of my theoretical thoughts as being completely unfounded because I do think of abstract things in a relatively scientific way.
Also I would like to add, when you get into theory it can cover a lot of ground. Science of my understanding is fickle in the sense there are things which have been proven but science can only hold its integrity with its innovators keeping an open mind and acknowledging that anything is possible, which then also includes that it is possible that everything we now know and have proven is wrong. But I won't go there.
Besides the fact that I think this is a question for neuroscience before anything else,
I think the argument/discussion began above pretty much encompasses the reality of the question: we don't know because with knowledge we have now, we are unable to retrieve some of what has previously been, but in theory it is possible to retrieve anything.
The question that arose in my mind relates to a similar question I have had regarding consciousness, subconscious, and all that we experience due to those. And it also requires an extensive knowledge of the brain and neuroscience, which again we do not PRESENTLY know all that much about.
Can we trace the physical occurrence that creates dreams, complex thought, the aftermath of feelings (the reaction the initial feeling causes for the rest of the brain), and extra perception such as intuition, instinct and dare I say thinks such as chakras (if they are scientifically sound)?
What type of energy are these and what are their properties?
Information can also be interpreted as being only present due to consciousness. The only reason it is information is because we can process it as such. Through science we can confirm information that has been available before we existed or acknowledged it, and there is information which is still available which we have not. I think in the scientific sense this is true because it is information that has become concrete.
To further connect this with the previous paragraph, it is obvious to us because we are the ones with the brains and conscious thought that dreams, etc, are real. Hallucinations on some level are real, because they are really experienced. Then there are dreams. Then there is abstract thought that you are thinking and feeling but can't quite explain what is going on. Then, there is intuition, and broadening into the possibilities of other extra sensory applications.
To further try and explain where I am coming from, because by this point people may be assuming I am talking about clairvoyance or that stuff, I am talking more about how animals other than ourselves process information and live their daily lives. And obviously there are different levels of this.
I think the study of neuroscience in animals brains combined with ethology and behaviorism can open many doors in the halls of understanding these types of questions and all those related to it, including those of other types of physics as discussed on this thread.
For anyone still reading, I thank you for indulging in my narcissism with me.
