Humans have learned to live in chaotic cities, to live into a multicultural societies, to travel in the space, to study in the detail the human body and the illnesses and to understand the nature at the tiny level of its fundamental particles.
Yet we have no an effective idea about how our Consciousness, intended as our ability to experience and learn about the reality and our world arises in the brain and how we can evolve through this common, subjective, human perception of the existence.
Most of the questions about consciousness remain one of the most important unanswered questions of modern neuroscience.
“Consciousness is What it Feels Like” Thomas Nagel
According to a wide philosophical definition, Consciousness is an universal Human Experience that is, common, but extremely elusive and subjective.
It’s really difficult to describe what it feels like to be conscious, and to transmit the realization of this total subjectivity to an another individual.
Many researchers and neuroscientists are still studying how the brain produces consciousness: what functions are happening and in which parts of the brain that spark the feeling of existence, presence and awareness.
Consciousness is also one of the main topic of research in A.I. development that it is involved in the understanding of “if and how” a machine could perceive, develop its own consciousness and evolve by itself.
Consciousness as Oneness
Edgar Cayce, one of most influent psychic of the past century, has described consciousness under a transpersonal point of view, considering consciousness such as oneness and suggesting the experience of this definition as a starting point of a proper path of personal development toward a complete and integral holistic mindset:
“Everything in our life’s experiences is like a personal mirror that invites us to learn more about our relationship to all-that-is, or reality, or God for ultimately oneness demands that God is all there is. Our life’s experiences are reflections of our soul mirrors that we can learn from in the same way that we can learn from our dreams.
Our experiences reflect who we are. Our spiritual path moves us from perceiving ourselves to be as our ego experiences us as separate, autonomous individuals. Yet life is attempting to teach us a different consciousness of reality: although we are individual, we are one with all-that-is.”
