How would you explain consciousness, if you can at all? It seems like a generally interesting topic, and I can understand what each centre in the brain does, but I can't connect it as it seems pretty hard. What do you think?

Well, my problem with this is that I can understand what each centre does, but I find it hard to connect them into one entity that is in this case separate and contains more than parts themselves (as far as my understanding goes). I find odd itself. For example a computer could do almost anything that a human does, but it still is not conscious. I just find it odd for some reason.

I'd reckon conciousness arrives in you at some point in between the cells in your brain performing what they're supposed to do and the point of them reconsidering what they're supposed to do.
Such as somewhere between cells in your brain analysing images, sounds, tastes, movement and such and the point when you start considering those given things... @Marshy14 what are you exactly trying to say?

If you don't understand I'm not going to articulate myself for you. The electrolytes get absorbed from absoprtion of consciousness. you have to be a truly sad person to not get this... maybe the cosmos didnt even give you consciousness..

Consciousness is like a laptop screen and what's on display there. You can't see anything on it until you boot up the system, and even then you only see whatever your you seek out, watch, write down etc. and it's the only thing you are fully in control of while the other wired processes (or subconscious) just work by itself in the background.

I suppose I meant the whole system and connections in the brain, how they form the subjective feeling. I don't think we actually know that much to be able to say surely why and such things, it is till interesting to think about and at least try to explain it. I might of course be wrong.

I don't believe anyone has this answer yet... the only thing I can really say confidently is that the ability to have memory is really important.. with this explanation you could say that consciousness is a spectrum..

Well questions ought to be respected none the less don't you agree?
Now what do you mean by electrolytes? and how do you define cosmos I'm curious for your next reply.

Haha, Im not even going to reply to this post... so good luck thinking about my next response. now run along, your electrolytes are clearly out of whack, if you cant grasp the concept of electrolyte-cosmic relations leading to consciousness then you truly are not worth responding to as your electrolytes are out of whack... do you even understand magnitude of tangential transformers? We can start there.... Now run along, you wont get a response from me.

I'm just assuming you're no scientist and didn't formulate this theory on your own.. so may I request your sources? A book? Youtube link maybe? I'm very curious.

There's a common saying that has to do with assuming... it would fit perfectly here.

So you're a scientist and developed this thought completely on your own? May I ask if you had any sources I could look into which might've influenced this? Or have you taken it upon yourself to do any writing available to me?

Ok, are you familiar with topological transgression? Logical analysis dictates that these transformers come somewhere from the cosmos, however, they ought to be a byproduct of illogical statutes. Believe the picture and see the truth, 2+4=6

I'm not familiar with it but I'm looking into it now, thanks

The motorcyclist is (blind) to the bike they are riding [thus consciousness 'explain' can only go so far before it becomes incoherent],

Although, "consciousness," is a high-functioning magic trick -- it is the brain is projecting an "avatar" (re: you) via the environmental simulations in which you occupy to make 'navigating' the terrian less rocky. In other words, it is a function of awareness produced via a highly complex nervous system of most (agents), it projects not only ("you"), but a majority of high-functioning stimulus, such as, when the brain 'perceives' correlational external environmental data, it also "transforms," it into adaptive simulations.

This includes, "you," (re: self-consciousness); which is your own, personal adaptable / modifiable "avatar".

I have tried to break it down inside of my own head, and everything is really connected. Memory is really important for future planning in humanity the way I see it, the other very important aspect of planning is innovation.

Yeah.. what I was mostly getting at is the voice in our heads is impossible without memory so it's got to be one of the crucial elements.
