Around the world the sun was worshipped in ancient times because of the important role it plays for this planet, so even if it had been lifeless at the start I'm sure it has some form of consciousness by now. As far as where to look for more information take a look at this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_deity and you'll see something useful, hopefully anyway.

My own understanding of the ‘Central Sun’ is this:
Quote:
The Saami drum is Sun-centred. The 'Beaivi' is a part of the pillar of the universe around which everything takes place in the heaven of the deities as well as among people below.
The drums of the Saami shamans depict mythical representation of the world. These cosmologies are featured around a central sun, based on a sacred, tripartite (3 worlds) model. These veritable cognitive maps are used during shamanistic trances. Inside, these drums also bear esoteric and ritual significations.

Quote:
"The Eagle in the traditional interpretation embodies the Sun, authority and the Upper World, while Elk/Moose is associated with Power, Generosity and Beauty".

It is the Thunderbird/Eagle (sitting on the top of the World Pole) that initiates the shaman-to-be to the Central Sun Power - as I understand it.

This is very interesting, Thanks. Eagle also can be used to symbolize intelligence...

I didn’t exactly answer your question - if the sun is a conscious being? – directly.

At least, how I understand it from my cultural point of view - the physical sun symbolizes the spiritual source essence, its light energy – which is the luminous consciousness itself.

But is it an entity …. Well …. You cannot exactly ‘summon’ the Central Sun (you are already of its essence), but you can ‘summon’ the Eagle, which like a go-between (or energy function between the absolute & the relative awareness levels) - can awaken us to the realization of the consciousness energy of the Source/Essence/Totality.

Here a sage – clad in holy red & white – 'rides' a black eagle:

Yes, I believe the celestial bodies, such as the sun - like the moon and the earth - are conscious, personal deities next to being physical..
You could check the wiki on solar deities or do focussed meditation.

That’s some nice artwork again, sentient!

if you look at it from the perspective of puritans we are all one being so in esssence the sun is a part of everything and you are apart of the sun...are you alive? are you the sun? what is you? i think if you dig deeper youll find some interesting answers
