who can tell me what the biological basis of consciousness is and why it exists?

who can tell me what the biological basis of consciousness is and why it exists? What selection pressure led to its development,and how many of our fellow creatures share it?

  1. I can only assume that the biological basis of consciousness is for surivial. If you consciouness you will know if you are in danger from something, be it if something that wants to snack on you, or an envirmoment that is not healthy for you. Take a plant for example it can not move, so if something comes and rips it up and eats it, pain and having a consciousness would be useless for it. Animals that can escape by moving can feel pain so to avoid damage places, fights etc and so having a consciouness to feel pain is usefull to them.

  2. How many of our fellow creatures share it? I can tell you truly that not many of those who read your words share it – perhaps even you don’t. Most of us live a shadow life compared to what is truly possible. You sound like a thinker, forget all this crap and go find your own truth.
