It seems to me that what you call "consciousness per se" is the mental fabrication that I construe to be out there mixing it up with those sights, sounds, smells, tastes, tacticle sensations and cognitions which arise and I call "consciousness". I don't see why I need mention those products of my ignorance to be considered to be talking about consciousness per se.....maybe I'm missing something.retrofuturist wrote: ↑Fri Aug 02, 2019 4:38 am Greetings,
The rest of your larger exposition appeared to be about "some thing called consciousness", rather than consciousness per se. To wit, it didn't really explain much.chownah wrote: ↑Fri Aug 02, 2019 4:16 am As I clearly introduced my post: "I'll briefly tell what I think consciousness is." I tried to make it clear that I was not saying what conscciousness is according to others.....unless by coincidence they happen to have views identical to mine.
Other than this I don't know what your question is asking. You put "that" in italics but I don't really know what "that" is referring to.....if it is referring to the short excerpt you present then I say that the short excerpt you present does not express what I think consciousness is....you need to take the entire post as being a short description of my views on this. I think my post taken as a whole expresses something that is by and large understandable.
