What is consciousness? Inside our head we see swirling and pulsating thoughts and images. As an an objective observer we are aware of our physical
bodies and physical surrounding of the world.
The limits of the observers objective observation was once dependant on our eye sight, as far we can see to the horizion and out to the heavens. There
we quickley realised the limits of our conciousness only being able to discern abstract features of forms and shapes.
These days of course we have technology available that allows us to extend that perception. The computer i am working on now allows me for example to
use Google Map and view geographically most places in the worlds. Who in the days of discovering the New continents would of even dreamed such feat
This brings into question the very nature of perception. If perception and consciousness are one and the same thing (as postulated by mystics and
eastern philosophies), then the ability of technology to extend reach of the human beings perception is then also expanding the human consciouness is
The development of the first technology to increase human perception was this not the first baby step to taking over from mother nature; the
evolutionary control of the human mind?
And what is the fundamental nature of consciounness, is it the human mind, are all these terms of consciousness, the human mind and perception
interchangable? Are they all one and the same thing or different things all togther?
I have heard on occassions theories saying the human consciouness resides somewhere inside the brain as electromagntic energy. If this the same as
the electromagnetic waves which permeate all objects and the void of space? Is the understanding of electromagnetic energy the key to unlocking the
secrets of the human collective consciousness?
What will be ultimate outcome of human progress advancing technology. Is it to build a bridge of perpection between the mind of the human being
What do you think?
