For the next couple of days I am going to unveil to you my perspective on how I perceive consciousness, as well as, life itself.
I feel these mysteries beg to be ‘deeply’ explored. So, before we all suit up and take a deep dive into this vast sea of the human unknown let’s first swim towards what many have defined as our “conscious mind.”
Consciousness is considered the state of being aware of an external object or something within oneself. It has been defined as sentience; the ability to feel, perceive, or to experience subjectively. Consciousness has been deemed as wakefulness, having a sense of ‘self-hood,’ and the executive control system of the human mind.
Despite the difficulty in definition, many philosophers believe that there is a broadly shared underlying intuition about what consciousness is.
Okay, now let’s address Sigmund Freud’s theory surrounding the human mind. Sigmund Freud believed that our behavior and personality derive from the constant and unique interaction of conflicting psychological forces that operate at three different levels of awareness: the conscious mind, the pre-conscious mind, and the unconscious mind.
Well, in my opinion, until someone is capable of unveiling a ‘so called’ conscious mind we human beings do not possess one. Considering, the soul or the spirit of who we are is indeed the divine consciousness.
Furthermore, we are born pure in ‘mind’, pure in body, and pure in soul. Thus, we do not even have a pre-conscious or unconscious mind, assuming the ‘mind’ is not plural! Hence, from my insight, we human beings only occupy one mind. And this one mind is the “Almighty Subconscious Mind.”
Now, although Scientists have yet to determine a specific location within the human brain that produces consciousness, they have presumed there is no other practical place outside of the brain that could naturally produce consciousness.
So, we live our entire lives believing in a scientific presumption that the most essential phenomenon in this Universe stems from our brain as if it’s an undisputed fact!
The question that is forever burning is does the ‘formless’ essence of consciousness really stem from the human brain? And if so, how is it possible that something made of matter is actually capable of producing a ‘mysterious energy’ that contains no matter?
As a matter of fact, I feel we should all ask the following question: Why do we believe that our brain really matters as it relates to exuding the elusive nature of consciousness?
