Ursula–There are empirical expressions of consciousness as well as matter. 
I understand consciousness to be an invisible life-force and knowing capacity that permeates the entire universe. So-called “material” systems (strings of resonance?) are able to utilize this permeating knowing capacity in order to self-organize. As self-organizing matter and consciousness co-evolve, they can reach sufficiently high levels of complexity for us to recognize and describe them as “living.”
