Even if the psychedelic experience that everything is one (or more accurately, part of a connected whole) is true, that doens't imply that the universe can know its entire state simultaneously. That would imply that the universe has unitary consciousness (which implies incredibly massive information processing capability) or infinitely fast propagation of information. Given that light has a finite rate of propagation and time slows down in the presence of a lot of information in a small space, neither of those appear to be true.
