Consciousness is perhaps the biggest riddle in nature. In the first part of this three part video series, we explore the origins of consciousness and take a closer look on how unaware things became aware.

    Consciousness is more or less being able to observe stuff, whether correctly/incorrectly, partially/fully. As long as we can detect it, it is a part of consciousness

    I think there's a great problem with this traditional way of viewing consciousness in this video. Try and look panpsychism or panexperientialism up. I think they actually give a much more fulfilling explanation for problem of the existence of consciousness or experience but you know - it's my opinion

    This is just superb, I been tryin to find out about "cleveland center for conscious living" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across - Renaliyah Wordless Recognition - (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? It is a smashing one of a kind product for discovering how to manifest the success you deserve without the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my buddy got cool results with it.

    Maybe Trichoplax adherens don't need to be conscious, but arguably, neither does anything else have to be conscious. I could imagine an automaton that can behave just like myself, but having no inner life. It seems to me that we have no more reason for having consciousness, than a rock does. Yet, I have consciousness, and you're sure you have it as well.

    Atheists are people who demand of themselves to believe that only atheists, a small minority of the people in the world, are right about the existence of non-physical things, such as their own spirit, because they refuse to accept the inference that their own sentience is evidence of their spirit and that the cause of their spirit is God. "Not a single salient characteristic of the mind is a property of matter. The strict materialistic explanation for the mind - the attribution of immaterial mental acts and properties to brain matter - is, by definition, a materialist superstition, a "false irrational conception of causation in nature maintained despite evidence to the contrary." -- Dr. Michael Egnor, award winning neurosurgon "It really is that absurd. For materialists, the metaphor of memory for computer storage of electronic representations has become metaphysics, which (sadly) is a bit of an improvement on actual materialist metaphysics, which is utterly incoherent. The proper response to this pitiful error is a bit of common sense, explained slowly." - Dr. Michael Egnor, award winning neurosurgon "Materialists have taken note of the growing efforts by non-materialist neuroscientists to point out the deep problems with the inference that the brain is entirely the cause of the mind. Materialist neuroscience, like materialist evolutionary biology, is a vacuous orthodoxy, and its proponents resent threats to their dogma. Darwinian explanations for functional biological complexity are nonsense, but some familiarity with the relevant science is necessary to understand that it is nonsense. Materialist explanations for the mind are transparent nonsense." - Dr. Michael Egnor, award-winning neurosurgeon "The plain fact is that the materialist picture of the body and brain as the producers, rather than the vehicles, of human consciousness is doomed. In its place a new view of mind and body will emerge, and in fact is emerging already. This view is scientific and spiritual in equal measure and will value what the greatest scientists of history themselves always valued above all: truth." - Dr. Alexander, University of Virginia Medical School, former faculty member at Harvard Medical School "There are not many options - essentially just two. Either human intelligence ultimately owes its origin to mindless matter; or there is a Creator. It is strange that some people claim that it is their intelligence that leads them to prefer the first to the second." - John Lennox, PhD mathemetician Oxford University, theologian If atheism were true, humans would be soulless bags if matter with no innate value. Therefore, atheism is not only absurd, obviously false, and cannot provide for the existence of anything including morality, but is in fact a dangerous necromancy that has caused the death of hundreds of millions of people in the 20th century - a mountain of bodies and a river of blood - all because atheists refuse out of pride to acknowledge God. Atheism is a sickness that has done too much harm already. It should be internationally illegal to tell anyone they are a souless bag of matter. This is abuse of the highest order. Atheism is the least intellectual idea ever produced by a human, and requires a person to be in denial of a large percentage of the accrued knowledge of mankind. Atheists believe the universe exploded from a spaceless point, produced astonishing order, ultimately producing rock soup which came alive which then organized itself into Beethoven and space probes. They believe soulless bags of matter write novels too. Logical, rational, scientific stuff if I ever heard it. Those atheists are so smart! If the mind is entirely caused by matter, free will cannot exist. If free will does not exist, then there is no such thing as an opinion. Therefore the atheist assertion, "There is no evidence for the existence of God." is is just chemical reaction, not an opinion, and cannot be either true or false. If atheistic materialism were true, then immaterial things like propositions, such the proposition that materialism is true, can't be true. Atheism is logically incoherent and self-refuting. If atheistic materialism were true, then the atheist proposition, "There is no evidence for the existence of God." is is just chemical reaction, neither true nor false. Atheism is logically incoherent and self-refuting. When asked how chemistry (of the brain) is able to produce opinion, assertions, queries, or make observations, atheists cannot provide an answer. They go silent. "If the mind is entirely caused by matter, free will cannot exist. Matter is governed by fixed laws, and if our thoughts are entirely the product of brain chemistry, then our thoughts are determined by brain chemistry. But chemistry doesn’t have "truth" or "falsehood," or any other values for that matter. It just is. Enzymatic catalysis isn’t true or false, it just is. In fact, the view that "materialism is true" is meaningless… if materialism is true. If materialism is true, then the thought "materialism is true" is just a chemical reaction, neither true nor false. While there are some philosophers who assert that free will can exist in a deterministic aterialistic world (they’re called "compatibilists"), and some have argued that quantum indeterminacy may leave room for free will, the most parsimonious explanation for free will is that there is an immaterial component of the mind that is undetermined by matter."- Dr. Michael Egnor, award winning neurosurgon

Believe it or not, some anthropologists think that our 'inner voice' is a relatively recent invention, not something that was a feature of the so-called caveman, for instance...

    Intelligence does not require consciousness. Consciousness has no control, you don't have any control over what you think. It's just there perceiving but it does nothing. There is no event or behaviour that can be attributed to consciousness. You're talking about the origins of intelligence but even in that, you are not even close. The universe has always been inherently intelligent. It's a rational entity, the matter that's caught into self organising systems are literally the ideas of the universe. It behaves as though it wants to understand itself, simply because it's a rational being.

    I think it's pretty evident that consciousness is just a strange byproduct of having the type of brain we do. All these little pieces come together to give the illusion that we are conscious, the base of which is simply the ability to identify concepts and states of matter. The image of the "self" probably comes from this and while it is technically accurate, it's not so deep and mysterious...just a simple side effect.

    After asking the universe where my consciousness started, I had a detailed dream that my personal consciousness came from an advanced AI machine in the future. At that point in the physical world my spirit was created in the spirit world. And then my spirit was placed in a biological form at a different point in time in the physical world. When I woke up I was thinking no way that is what happened, but after thinking about it, maybe that's what really happened. Just another perspective that came from a question to the universe.

      @The Flip God1 Culture is the product of our mind-directed-behavior, obviously, but our minds are built by the culture in which they are nurtured, in which they're embedded (the language we speak, for instance, is both an element of culture and the part of mind that does most of our thinking (note how your mind is working linguistically as you read this very sentence)). So, we make the culture and it makes us which, taken together and viewed from a distance, we call civilization. We cannot know if civilization is conscious in the analogous way not one of the hundred trillion cells that make up my body has any inkling of my existence. Just imagine, it might be the case that for civilization to become a super individual conscious entity, we humans who make up its body must once again relapse into unconscious so that we can become perfectly obedient to the super beings instructions and that networked cell phones are just an early step taking us in that direction. Disobedience in that circumstance would appear to the super exactly analogous to cancer cells in us.

I wonder if are culture becomes so evolved it won’t be considered homo sapien any further . Either way we won’t be the same!

      Perhaps it's not the hunt for food that made us conscious. Perhaps it was the steadily increasing complexity of human settlement culture caused by the population explosion caused by the discovery of agriculture that constituted the conditions for cultural evolution to discover that conscious people were essential to the growth and survival of civilizations (in contrast to what their instinct driven ancestors could accomplish). If that is true then we should expect our minds to gradually transform as they adapt humanity to our steadily increasing cultural complexity. Maybe that means people become 'more conscious' but it might mean only differently conscious. I believe I can already see some kind of change happening as ever more of the folks I know become ever more tightly controlled by networks and cell phones, etc.

    Evolution became a laughable myth in the 20th century, during which it was disproved by millions of discoveries. One such discovery is that polymerase is a product of it's own translation, which proves Special Creation. Another is the discovery that the cell's structural design is not generated by genetic information, but is instead passed on by reproduction from the reproductive cells of the parents (Cortical Inheritance/Cytotaxis) which traces back to the original created organism. Evolutionism is a philosophy which is contradicted by science. Over 100 yrs ago, Evolution Theory was plausible for naturalists because of their rejection of God. Biological science was rudimentary and archaic, and provided no information about the operations of the cell. Modern biology has very greatly changed what is known of genetics and biology. It has been discovered that life is based upon information which is digitally encoded and stored in a more compressed form than man's best computer compression schemes. DNA is a material medium encoded with digital information which is compressed to a level greater than man's best information compression schemes, operates with linguistics by employing phonetics, symantics, punctuation,syntax, and grammar which is more complex than any spoken human language, operates algorithmically, operates semiotically (the application of meaning to a symbol and interpretation of meaning from a symbol), is prescriptive, functional, and possesses meaning. There is no potential for the material actions of chemistry to produce information, algorithms, and linguistics. They are non-physical fundamental entities that can only be produced by intelligence because they require forward thinking - consideration of and planning for the future. These facts are proof that all life was designed by a mind of supreme intelligence. Modern discoveries about biology have overwhelmingly demonstrated that evolution is impossible and creation is a scientific fact. During an organism's development, the genetic information instructs the cell on how to turn on and off, like chemical switches, numerous sequences of information of the DNA in a supremely complex and yet to be understood orchestral arrangement of groupings and orders so as to build the structures of an organism. These patterns of genes being switched on and off is so complex that man will likely never be able to decipher it. If you want to believe in evolution because you refuse to acknowledge the existence of our creator, nobody can stop you. But doing so is to be a denialists of the discoveries of modern science because the truth is uncomfortable, and to continue to believe things which the outdated concept of Charles Darwin over 150 yrs ago could not have predicted. Believing in evolution today is as antiquated as it was to believe that flies arose from meat, or that frogs arose from mud a century prior to Darwin. Eugenie Scott, a militant anti-creationist and promoter of evolutionism has stated, "If your local campus Christian fellowship asks you to "defend evolution," please decline. Public debates rarely change many minds; creationists stage them mainly in the hope of drawing large sympathetic audiences. Have you ever watched the Harlem Globetrotters play the Washington Federals? The Federals get off some good shots, but who remembers them? The purpose of the game is to see the Globetrotters beat the other team. And you probably will get beaten." Atheists in fact hate the Scientific Method and refuse to employ it. The most agregious example is the scientific knowledge of the effects of random genetic mutation. Random genetic mutation experimentation has been conducted for over 80 years. Over one million studies have been concluded, and they have provided consistent results demonstrating that random mutations are destructive and have negative effects upon organisms, both biochemically and anatomically, and do not add anything useful to the physiology of any organism, not even incrementally. What do we therefore conclude? We must conclude that mutation cannot be a mechanism for accruing change that results in macroevolution. But what does the atheist conclude despite such a massive body of evidence? They continue to claim that random mutation IS a mechanism for accruing change that results in mind-bending complexity, microscopic interdependent machinery, and macroevolution. They do this not because of science, but because their worldview requires it to be, since if evolution were true, random mutation would have to be the base mechanism for evolution since genetic information prescribes the features of organisms. In this way, they refuse to come to the correct conclusion because of their paradigm, tossing out the Scientific Method and the conclusion it would require them to accept.

      Charles Darwin was a Christian. You can't go on attacking atheists for their views when the concept and discovery of evolution was started by Darwin, a Christian himself. Science relies on facts. Facts point to evolution. You can't change facts. Period. Edit: It is kind of funny that you hide the like-dislike ratio on your videos.

      "How do neurons pull the rabbit of sensation out of a hat of information"? What is sensation? What is information? How much do they overlap? No need to answer these questions here in public but I imagine by thinking about these things deeply enough for long enough and with the assistance provided by reading Hofstadter's book, "Godel Escher Bach", you will have a good chance of achieving the feeling of understanding how it happens just as I do.

    The way they snuck in the assumption that consciousness just happens, ugh. I can write software that can search for food. Is it conscious? By the logic of this video: yes, necessarily. But what's the essential functional difference between it and a hand calculator, i.e. why should I expect it as a circuit to have consciousness, and the hand calculator not to? Or they both have consciousness. Ok, so why not just eddie currents from the Earth's magnetic field, induced in a piece of iron ore? So now we're at panpsychism, completely accidentally, with conscious rocks with "no observable behaviour", just because you lack the product you claim you're selling: Reason. Scientism at its worst, beautifully packaged.

    I find that not knowing why we experience and how we are even able to perceive anything at all like thoughts and consciousness as a whole to be absolutely fucking terrifying. The whole ability to put electric pulses in cell into experience and the emotions, feelings, senses is uncanny thing its so weird and abstract, and the fact that atoms know that they are made of atoms for about 80 years is a miracle
