The other thing was just a day or two ago my friend asked me when I dreamed in greek and when in English and I said it's totally random but then I mentioned thinking in certain languages and he laughed and said you dont think in words which threw me off. Not an hour later I was watching the Ricky gervals show and he cracked up when Karl said he thought in his accent saying you think in thoughts not words. How strange. Because I bave only ever thought in words like told co.plets sentences or even paragraphs to myself thru the voice in my bead. Never images charged with the thought all included.

Am I normal or what? I know for learning styles I am 100 per cent auditory 0 per cent kinesthetic and 0 visual ob every test I've taken maybe that is the same with thinking.

Well said you’re right it is better understood as awareness and thank you for your post.

I know I that I don’t have the best at grammar and punctuation or have the largest vocabulary but I do know the message Im trying to communicate so about the language part I was talking about the OP it comes from when we hear that little voice in our head the voice you hear when you’re reading, Is that voice not aware do you not think using the language? Have you never thought a really good comeback you could’ve said in an argument that happened two weeks ago?

How would describe that phenomenon without saying the word conscious or consciousness?


I did enjoy your OP, and understood your POV and grammar just fine.

Not sure where you came up with arguing and comebacks, I'm not arguing with You lol.

That internal dialogue you keep talking about is going on when we THINK.

Consciousness is before THOUGHT. It is not the one thinking, that is your brain and internal dialogue.

Consciousness is the one that is aware before a thought ripples in the brain. It's the one that watches the thought manifest via internal dialogue and brain activity.

Separate thought and consciousness. They aren't the same thing. Your thoughts are drawn from the internal dialogue or the "voice in your head" (some people have multiple voices, that's called schizophrenia btw) .

Conciousness is the ocean of awareness, thoughts are the internal dialogue conducting brain activity .

Think of it like the while chicken and the egg thing... consciousness came before thought.

Consciousness to 1 does exist as the connection to the CREATOR.
It acts as a catalyst for development.
If beings never gained it consciousness the fundamentals or core aspects of advanced societies to actually thrive could not be developed (like raising and protecting the young or elder- being considerate of the environment and other inhabitants in it or being aware of how to manipulate it artificially-forward thinking into the future of how to update and upgrade it- without a consciousness the space agencies wouldn't care or know to sterilize the technology they send to other planets to prevent cross contamination) so yes a consciousness does exist.

Without the consciousness development the mind or thinking is set primarily to primitive survival instinct of eat/reproduce/get sick/die leaving those beings to behave as unaware animals...

Consciousness does not exist, but not for the reasons you stated. Consciousness, awareness, or any derivative thereof, is a concept regarding the human body, but not some magical substance.

Very insightful so the internal dialogue comes from thinking, which isn’t the same as consciousness which is actually being aware of having thought itself.

Now I have a few questions , If there was a creator who created the creator? Do you believe synthetic life can have this same form of awareness? And do you believe morals like good and bad are real

Your brain is the radio set. Your consciousness is the music that plays through it. If the radio set breaks, that doesn't mean the music is no longer there. That's really all there is to it.

Re the universal connection - i believe this is where those random thoughts come from, also why we get answers to those things we say 'it'll come to me later'.

Many indigenous cultures still ask their ancestors, the greek or maybe it was the romans had the muses, now we have the major religions/saints etc .. but my point remains when we just ask and wait - often we are answered and this would seem to have happened throughout recorded history. Now over that time we have followed many religious beliefs and yet everybody gets their answers which kind of proves all religions/belief systems are just tools to connect within the ALL.

If you think consciousness doesn't exist, then these experiments will blow your mind:



To the observer consciousness does not exist because he is conscious.
