Theirs may not even be as complex as ours. I don't know. We have a hard time comprehending any other consciousness that lies outside of the human consciousness. The very top-level "God" can experience them all and in fact He does simultaneously. You are one of those many.
On the other hand, I also agree with Steve in that what you see has to do with your own consciousness. What shows up, what you experience is purely due to you and nothing outside of you. Each consciousness is a complete entity. Most people think their consciousness is comprised of their physical body, but to me, this is a very limited, insufficient scope. You have to expand that scope to "anything you are aware of in the physical or mental space-time continuum".
There is still no tug-of-war of intentions or contradictions. What you hold true in your consciousness space (not just any thought, but beliefs) will show up eventually. The correct type of consciousness needed to manifest your beliefs will show up within your consciousness space to have you experience what you hold to be true internally.
That's how I see it.
If this is true, then we'd better get everyone to genuinely believe "people rock!". Otherwise, even if a single person thinks "people suck!", then someone will have to be that consciousness to manifest this thought in that other person's consciousness space.
This actually gets very complicated very fast.. Because supposedly, the "God" consciousness intended everything as is.. Will we ever get everyone to believe "people rock!"? Who knows... But at least you better believe it yourself to avoid the wrath of consciousnesses that respond to "people suck!". Of course believing means acting in a way that supports the belief. You can't think people rock and then call them names or avoid them in fear...
Sorry.. I rambled a lot.
