Consciousness 4



Consciousness is pain + memory.
Is it?
Consciousness is self + consideration of self.
Is it?
Consciousness is looking ahead and behind.
Is it?
Consciousness is a pattern of a pattern-seeking pattern.
Is it?
Consciousness is desire corrupted into hope.
Is it?
Consciousness is sensation organized into perception.
Is it?
Consciousness is a finite affinity for fidelity.
But is it?
