Where do we get our consciousness from?

  1. There’s a (non-widely accepted) theory that tiny tubes of protein in our brain allow entangled particle states (quantum schimazzle) which forms conscious thoughts. But, then again, maybe not.

  2. When the brain is changed or damaged, consciousness changes. Centuries of evidence shows there is no reason whatsoever to think anything more than the brain is involved.

  3. Jesus !
    Jesus is the WORD!
    Jesus made you !
    He put his light in YOU !
    Conclusion …. We get our Consciousness from Jesus who made everything and IN him all things consist !
    (John 1:1 KJV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    (John 1:2 KJV) The same was in the beginning with God.
    (John 1:3 KJV) All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
    (John 1:4 KJV) In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

  4. That’s an excellent question for a secular humanist.
    Self-awareness is a quality of human life that is set apart from all species, is it not?
    So why are people different?
    The Biblical answer would be that we chose to do so. That is, free will came first, and we chose to know good and evil. (We ate from the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil). The animals didn’t eat from that tree.
    The fact of the matter is that internally, we have some REASON for “morality”, judging between what is good and what is evil. And there is a distinction between the two. They can NOT be relative, because then there would be lawlessness, all men deciding their own truths, which is anarchy.
    If it were “impulses in the brain” or some other arbitrary biological process, there would be no CHOICE in the matter, and we would not act according to our own will, but we would, like the animals, act out of nature and impulse.
    But we don’t. We have restraint. We have choices, and we make choices. “The brain” is an insufficient answer.
    In fact, I would argue the the impulses that occur in the brain are the RESULT of choice, and choice is a RESULT of the consciousness itself, which IS the internal knowledge of good and evil.

  5. I think it begins with the first life to form cell walls, thereby establishing the formal distinction between self and other.

  6. Our consciousness started long before we were in the human stage, we went through four kingdoms before we even became human in form, we first started with Pure Spirit, which is Will & Imagination, then into Abstract Thought, then the Focus of mind, Concrete Thought, then begin to learn the Higher Desires, Feelings then Lower Desires, all of this to reach the Physical World, here we receive our Vital Body then the actual Dense Body.
    By the time Adam was created, it was here he separated Will ( Man ) & Imagination ( Woman ), when He made Eve. this is why we have two sexes.

  7. Tied to all the forms of consciousness:
    Subconscious – you at the base level of AWARENESS
    Conscious – you at the human AWARENESS
    Subconscious – you, at the soul or higher self level
    Supraconscious – you at the God level
    These are the four forms of consciousness, and there are ONLY four of them. Beginning with supraciousness, this is the awareness of God, at the SELF level. This is the totality of everything that IS. In a shorter way of looking at it, the ISness of All that IS, is the SupraSupra consciouse. This is the “mind of God.” The eternal, everlasting, all knowing, All Mighty Self.
    The superconscious – The level of the Soul, who is connected directly to God and has access directly to all the knowing that God has…but limits focus on BEING the SELF rather than BEING God. This is a little hard to explain. The soul CAN be aware of whatever it desires to be aware of and can directly tap into the supraconsiousness for answers. In otherother words soul can GET the information it wants when it needs it or desires it.
    Consciousness – Is a state of UNAWARENESS of the states of supra and super consciousness. It is the awareness encapsulated into the individual, who is tied to the soul who in turn is tied to God. There is an intentional and purposeful reason for the limitations of the consciousness. You can make yourself AWARE if you want to, but most people have no clue about that and no idea how to do it.
    The sub-consciousness, is the well of all deposited learning and experience in life. It is like a great library collection of everything you have ever said, thought, done or experienced. It is tied to the consiousness (yes, you experience the sub-conscious through your dreams, for example and thus it is tied TO your consciousness) which in turn is tied to the super and supra consciousness.
    What exactly is it? Exactly, it is energy, is what it is. Everything in the universe, everything in all states of existence, is energy vibrating at different frequencies. You know your mind has neural pathways, connected by neurons. Along these pathways moves electricity which is energy. All energy has frequency (the number of cycles per second). So exactly, the consciousness and all forms of consciousness I have described, are energy. That is exactly what consciousness is.
