Kind of similar to this, at least with the consciousness aspect, is the idea brought forth by the movie Arrival.
SPOILER - DON'T READ IF YOU WANT TO WATCH ARRIVAL
The movie presented an idea of higher consciousness achieved through learning a certain language that had no form (a sentence would happen all at once, in a single moment). Once learned and mastered, the person could then think in that language and actually travel through space time at will, seeing the future or traveling to events across the planet.
This is kinda similar to the weird aliens in the Kurt Vonnegut the Tralfamdore that has access to the 4th dimension and could perceive time at their own will.
