Human consciousness is a mystery.
It seems to be something different from intelligence.
Making machines more and more intelligent (AI) does not seem to generate consciousness.
Cats and dogs seem to have a measure of consciousness–the Watson computer on the other hand, probably not.
So what is this self-awareness we call consciousness?
Have a look at this short video above. The line between deep wisdom and craziness is pretty fuzzy…
So does the brain and its activity CREATE consciousness, or does the body/brain just “host” consciousness? A throne for the soul/spirit?
And what is the Spirit (Ruach, Pneuma, Spiritus, Geist), and is it any different from the Soul (Nephesh, Psyche, Anima/Animus, Seele)?
And if you believe in an afterlife, what part of you leaves the dead body?
What do you think?
