Have you ever wondered what is consciousness? I do quite often. If you are looking for a clear, concise explanation of consciousness, this post may not answer those questions.
Are humans the only species that possess consciousness? Have you seen the documentary My Octopus Teacher? It sure did seem as though that octopus possessed consciousness.
Do all humans possess consciousness? Probably? I like the way David R. Hawkins describes the levels of consciousness in Power vs Force. And I like the adaptation of the consciousness levels in the chart from Chris W. Metz.
I study this chart every so often. Not so much to understand consciousness in general but to understand my consciousness. This is my intrigue on the topic. Where am I? What do I want to do about it?
Yet there are theories that all things share a collective consciousness. Which is a pretty cool concept. I think we see evidence of this from time to time. Power of pray. Power of meditation. Herd mentality.
