(Devamitta)the pure undifferentiated awareness that each and every one of us were born into this world with.
But computers have pure undifferentiated awareness and they are at this time simply pre-programmed artefacts.However unlike animals that have memories and therefore possibilities of creativity, computers and creatures with no memory functions are not creative: nothing new emerges from their P U A .
Does every living individual have P U A as soon as it is born? A bird just out of its shell? A seedling newly germinated? I'd say yes, if one living newborn individual has it is there any reason to assume that only humans or 'higher' mammals have P U A?
Then, we usually assume that plants and 'lower' animals don't learn from experience because they lack the sort of nervous systems that support memories.So do these 'lower' creatures continue throughout their lives in states of P U A ?
This all fits with the sort of nature pantheism displayed by Romantic poets of the 18th and 19th centuries.It's a pleasant theory to go along with, and probably very good for the struggles of environmentalists against our consumerist greed.
