(disclaimer I am nee to this site. I am also dyslexic spell and grammar are not my strong suit.) I am struggling with the concept of consciousness when does it begin, when does it end. If we have consciousness then we can create it or bread it into aminals because we ourself just a by product of eveoulution. Is it already there in animals such as dolphins and other. To say consciousness is a form of eveoulution would mean it would require a start. But we can't define where is starts.
But to accept there is no consciousness and we are just animals pursuing our own instincts. The instinct to freed, breed, and survive. Would accept the fact we are no different then the animals around us. As we were both created equalily via eveoulution. Consciousness in essence, is just man not willing to accept he is driven by his animalistic nature. He works to provide shelter for his family just as the a beaver has the instinct to build a dam.
If man is nature and man is conscious. Then concussion has always been apart of nature. But if there is no consciousness in nature, then is man just a ape to arrogant to accept he has no control who is he? Is the illusion of choice just humans instict to survive.
"I think so there for I am." But do we truly think? Is "I am arrogant so there for I am." I am standing for there for I am." If thinking is just the chemical reaction on the brain than we are just computers running a around on auto pilot for the vessale of cells we call a body.
