(Nature here is used to mean: that which does not appear to be intelligent, dynamic or alive). I partially disagree with this. Consciousness has requirements, and if you remove the requirements, the consciousness no longer exists. However, nature does not require consciousness. It does not need anyone to be aware of it. It exists regardless of consciousness. So removing the requirements of consciousness does not destroy nature (or even affect it). For example, nuclear fusion existed (e.g., in the sun) before it was discovered. It existed even though no one was aware of it. If civilization falls and people again become unaware of it, it will still exist. The same thing is true of distant galaxies, neutrinos, and other discoveries.
