Consciousness is pretty much everything. Everything that you’ve apprehended in your life is due to being able to have conscious experience. But why is it that perhaps the most fundamental ability in our life is so hard to pin down? Why are we Conscious? Where is Consciousness? How did we become Conscious? What do we do with it now? Is it evolving? All of these questions are brought up with my guest Zoi in the latest (and most chaotic) episode of What Magic is This?
Note- Apparently I like to use the word conscious instead of the word consciousness. I’ve been noticing that I do this quite often not just in this episode. Hopefully going forward I’ll be a little more conscious of how I talk.
