(which is another way of saying we are experiencing existence). However, we are not consciousness made entity, we are each an entity imbued with
consciousness. That is to say, we are imbued into a condition of a conscious state, and remain so every second from birth to death. Even in sleep we
remain ‘internally’ conscious, even though the higher mental faculties and motor circuits are electro-chemically dampened so that the body can do
its repairs…we dream. We remain internally conscious during sleep due to our brain processing what is called proprioceptive data signals from within
and around the body, it is something to bear in mind.
When we are sleeping, we are analogous to being an energy density at lowest energy phase, and only awaken when some form of external energy wave
impinges upon our external sensing organs, such as an alarm clock (waves of air pressure impinging upon our ear drums). We are raised out of lowest
energy phase and excited into the higher energy state of wakeful consciousness.
At birth we are a blank canvas in terms of being an individual entity. The entity is there, but the passage of years of growth towards adulthood and
maturation have not yet written their experiences upon our memory. The entity itself has not yet emerged clothed in the person-hood of ‘I’ we each
individually become, with our own unique character and personality traits. Yet, we are conscious, and were so to some limited degree even while we
were growing in-utero. No infant, whether in-utero or immediately born consciously creates the womb or the reality around it, it is both conceived and
born into reality already made, and from which it receives all the radiating energies which stimulates its young senses. It is already experiencing
existence with only a very limited reciprocal response mechanism…it cries.
The infant opens its eyes and photons immediately fall upon its retinas, causing them to fire and send signals along the optic nerves towards the
brain, Simultaneously, other external radiations bathe its small body, with sounds and thermal gradients and pressure upon its soft skin, all of which
stimulate the infant’s body to react and to send signals of stimuli to the brain, and the brain processes all these signals in some way and presents
a diffuse experience of its early life which is captured and assimilated into memory, much of which will become hard to recall later in life.
Memory plays such an important and vital part of what and who we are. An infant’s brain is smooth, unlike an adult’s which is crevassed, and the
reason why the brain becomes crevassed as we age is because of how memory is laid down. New experiences (and only new and original experiences) are (I
believe) laid down on the utmost outer layer of the cortex, on each modular piece of the brain as a new layer of neural connections, and as more new
layers are added as we grow to adulthood, the brain enfolds, layering earlier memories, older neural connections, down deeper as if it were laying
down layers of sedimentary rock.
All these deeper layers of neural connections remain active and connected to the upper layers of the cortex globally, but it is in the upper layers
which is where wakeful consciousness emerges, as the upper layers correlate to the consciousness of the present moment, but before the consciousness
of the present moment emerges, the stimuli of the present moment has to energise the upper layers of
