"Consciousness" is a basic "Field" in Physics.
There is much interest in the details of just how the Brain "creates" Consciousness, but very little that I can find about just why that idea is a lot like the "Ether" controversy of a hundred years ago. A much more fruitful idea would be that C. is an Undefined Term, like Electro-Magnetism in Physics Theory. i.e. you cannot find language to say what it "Is", just because it is too basic. So you use it as an axiom, with the usual field characteristics, to see what conclusions you can derive which might be useful . And they are.
