Can our brains help prove the universe is conscious?

As humans, we know we are conscious because we experience and feel things. But we are still unable to explain exactly what consciousness is or where it comes from.

“Consciousness — or better, conscious experience — is obviously a part of reality,” Johannes Kleiner, a mathematician and theoretical physicist at the Munich Center For Mathematical Philosophy, Germany, shared in an interview. “We’re all having it but without understanding how it relates to the known physics, our understanding of the universe is incomplete.”
