Gonzalo Rodriguez Posted over 2 years ago What is consciousness? What is required for consciousness to exist? So... we are evolved objets, a conjuctions of facts that made us what we are, no thing more nothing less, not a mistery behind our behavior, or trascendancy in our thoughts, so under this premises there is a line, a dualist concept of life, energy that keeps a balance in our body so we can live, if that breaks we stop living therefore existing. I can only assume, because i have no factual evidense to support what im saying, that death is more than the abscense of life. i used to think in condcutism is what we are, a response to our enviroment a result, controllable and replicable, but here is a mystery, once you are aware of this proces you can decide, more than decide change our very inner preconcepts, conditions. in the very same way we can be aware of what made us, we can explore this inner proces of perception, and "be aware" of two diferent levels concius, one as the subconcius bound to the physical body, and other subtle perception that does not recognice facts, even thought it's aware.
