Consciousness

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Consciousness is the quality or state of being aware. [1] To be conscious in the philosophical sense means to have mental processes that are self-directed [2] and which provide a locus of subjective experience.[3] Animals are alleged to possess a form of consciousness [4] although this is not necessarily to be equated with the Christian notion of having moral worth or an immortal soul.[5]
