Reality builds on multiple levels.
There are multiple levels of understanding reality. What allows knowing those levels are following the flux of information, but it isn’t enough.
There are multiple levels for perceiving reality. What allows experiencing those levels is following the flux of consciousness, but it isn’t enough.
If the fluxes of information and consciousness don’t cross and interact, the power of information can be overwhelming, and the power of consciousness can be misleading.
Consciousness gives sense and meaning to information. And information provides the canvas for developing greater consciousness. The interaction between both is what gives us a relational view of the world.
