Steve, what if I said that you were sub-human, that would be an insult right? So what if I considered that I was conscious and called you or another part of my brain sub-conscious?How arrogant of me and I think I might have it the wrong way round.
What if we got it all wrong. What if what we call our consciousness is actually our sub-conscious and what we call our sub-conscious is actually more conscious than we are?
Who or what is our driver, and who or whatever that is then maybe the one in the back seat is the “sub”. Maybe we are so unconscious or sub-conscious that we consider our conscious to be the sub.
Well I think that I might be on to something here and the game is afoot, Sherlock!
If we were conscious then we couldn’t learn anything new. Maybe our sub-conscious is the one that knows it all, i.e. conscious, and feeds us every now and then with a clever morsel.
Well that is what it feels like to me.
This goes back to the “Hooked Up” post and that we are just out of the tree and your Facebook comment; “I wouldn’t sell my level of consciousness for all the money in the world”. Would you sell your unconsciousness? Because I think what you call your consciousness is really sub-standard and it might explain why some people can get more in touch with their “consciousness” (what we call sub-conscious), or our consciousness can get more in touch with us.
So now all I have to do is let my consciousness inform me why this is so….stay tuned,
and maybe you could try give your “consciousness” a bit more credit and it/he/she might get in touch with you a bit more.
