What is consciousness? On the face of it, this seems like an easy question. We all know what it is like to be conscious. It allows for our individual experience of the world, making possible the magic and mystery of our everyday life as well as our interaction with an external reality. “This consciousness that is myself of selves, that is everything, and yet nothing at all – what is it? And where did it come from? And why?” In human nature we are always trying to explain and understand the world, the longing for certainty within our own specific interests and beliefs and selves. There must be more to life than survival and chance, something must be added from outside of this closed system to account for something as different as the unconscious.
