Enimerism: Beyond Naturalism

I have been thinking for some time as how to put together a manifest of a level of consciousness that supercedes naturalism. I have finally come up with the term: “Enimerism” derived from the Ancient Greek “enimeros” or “aware”.

Enimerism is different from Animism in that it does not believe in a supernatural soul. Instead it believes in a naturalistically understandable consciousness. Enimerism believes that consciousness has evolved along with the species and that right-brain omni-consciousness (assimilation) and left-brain self-consciousness (dissimilation) are spectra not an absolute afforded only to humanity.

Enimerism requires us to respect the consciousness of all things. That all things have an omni-consciousness and a self-consciousness. Since there is no way we can supernaturally understand this it appears we will only come to understand it through science and technology that will augment communication between the minds of different species including the human species.

We think about teaching an artificial intelligence about morality in order to protect ourselves from it.  What would other species teach us about our morality when they communicate with us?

Will we discover consciousness in living things that do not have nervous systems?
