Hi Catharine! Welcome to Inner Space! I suggest that it is helpful with concepts like consciousness, it is helpful to start by defining or describing what we mean by consciousness. One definition, I found helpful is that consciousness is awareness. But the notion of awareness leads pretty directly to the question awareness of what? Well, the answer appears to be pretty much everything. We are aware of what we see, touch, taste, smell, and hear. We are not just aware of what goes on “out there”, we are aware of what goes on in our body. So, it seems to me, that consciousness is a general awareness of interactions.

This being so :

Catharine stated
He talks about the brain being a receiver of consciousness. I view it more as being a vehicle for consciousness.

Both your and Graham’s ideas cover part of the conception. But we also know that, as we bumble through our lives, we are transmitters of consciousness as well via holding, talking and controlling our immediate environment.

So, perhaps your idea of consciousness as a vehicle is a great way to combine the notions of the brain being both a receiver and transmitter. What do you think?
