The process of consciousness is a dynamic accomplishment of the distributed activities of populations of neurons in many different areas of the brain.
Gerald M. Edelman, biologist
Consciousness is a process. Some call it “soul,” others call it “spirit.” In any case humans are aware they have “it”. We can feel it but are only beginning to uncover its truth. Consciousness is about speed, like light. It is heightened neuronal activity; like electricity traveling through a cord to a bulb. The light turns on and changes everything. A conscious moment begins and we can see.
We connect to the world and become live. We feel, emote and think. Reducing consciousness to processes can’t be bad. It can only lead to more, well, consciousness.
