Where do you think consciousness comes from?

Science can give answers to many things, but consciousness seems to be an unsolved mystery. Why do you think people have consciousness? Where does it come from? Do you think it can be created artificially? How?
You may answer based on anything you know, it does not have to be a proven fact. Thank you.

    Jul 23 2011: I wish I knew the answers.Any way let me say what I think and feel. we have consciousness to guide us.Many a time we hear someone saying "My conscience doesn't allow me to do that"So there is an inherent power or energy with in us which acts as a guide.It must have come from the same place from where we have come.I do not think that it can be created artificially,but it can be expanded.
