Diagram: “The Cycle of Life” by Toru Sato.
Summary of “A (potential) Cycle of Consciousness pt.1”
(summarizing a blog posting from May)
We begin life without consciousness of the “self” and we move to a point where we once again discover how interconnected we are to everything and everyone else in the world. This awareness may lead to the end of the “micro self”. This may also become the beginning of a “macro-self” that includes humanity and the environment at large; (maybe more?)
Today I found this diagram by Toru Sato. According to the blog posting where I found it,  it is from a book called The Ever-Transcending Spirit, , and it deals with the “cycle of life”.
This diagram mirrors the (potential) cycle of consciousness I described above.
(Thanks to folks at the Unurthed blog for finding this great diagram.)
