The ontology of the Cosmic Worldview (based on Martinus Cosmology) focuses on the "X-Structure" - the basic nature of life and reality, as this primordial form is unknown by man, the Danish intuitive philosopher Martinus (1890-1981) expressed it by the letter "X". This fundamental X-Structure is in principle the same for all forms of life and its main function is continuous creation of consciousness. The X-Structure operates via the "Reality-Consciousness Transformation Process" - X-RCT Process: the bidirectional manifestation-perception process from unmanifested initial reality into manifested objective reality (manifestation) and the experience of it as subjective reality - life-experience/consciousness (perception). The understanding of this fundamental structure of life and the X-RCT Process, gives an insight into reality as it is (the nature of objective reality) and, not least, the experience of it as qualia (the perception process and subjective reality). A profound solution to the "Hard Problem of Consciousness" (the mystery of perception, qualia) and the "Hard Problem of Reality" (the nature of objective reality). The X-Structure demonstrates that all living beings have, in addition to the temporary physical body, an immortal paraphysical structure with an "organic" system, which the physical body is connected to and dependent on. Martinus and his collaborator Per Bruus-Jensen describe the total organism complex and how it operates through three "organic" levels: Physical (temporary), Semiphysical (temporary), Paraphysical (eternal). Incoming objective impulses entering via the physical organism and the results/products of the physical processes are moving on to the semiphysical "switching body", which functions as a transition and transformation zone and link between the physical body and paraphysical body. The primary transformation and perception processes take place in the immortal paraphysical organism, the "eternal body", and are independent of the physical organism and the switching body. It is especially at this paraphysical level that objective reality is transformed into qualia i.e.: immaterial, phenomena only existing for the subject/the I - "the subjective reality complex". The paraphysical organism is very extensive, comprising a complex organic system including for example, the "talent cores"/"ability-nucs", stable storage units whose main functions are to accumulate all our personal experiences, abilities, qualities etc., in order to make it possible for us to reuse and develop them, including to take them with us from life to life. The talent cores are prerequisites for the development of all forms of life, and they play a major role in the creation of qualia at all levels and dimensions. Specialized talent cores constitute a personal "perception archive" and the information stored in these talent cores gives "resonance" to new incoming objective impulses and influences how we transform, interpret and act on stimuli. The X-Structure demonstrates that life-experience/consciousness is independent of the physical body and constitutes a personal, subjective, immaterial reality that our personal I, in interaction with our total organism, particularly our paraphysical organism and its organic functions, continuously generates.
