I think therefore I am.” René Descartes
Have you ever wondered where consciousness come from?
Being conscious gives us the ability to feel sensations and to experience the world through the lens of our minds. We can enjoy a beautiful day at the beach or appreciate the laughter of small children playing. We get to feel pain and pleasure.
Our brain perceives nerve impulses from our physical world that get interpreted as sensations or conscious awareness of that stimulus that is triggering the feelings. Consciousness is what psychologist’s call “theory of the mind”. However it is more than this. The mystery of consciousness is now being explored as an illusion. Maybe it is there only to amaze ourselves? Maybe it is there to see ourselves as spiritual beings having this human experience?
The chief benefits of being conscious feeds our self-worth, gives us the joys of life, eases our fear of death and most important, increases our respect for others. Maybe instead of “I think therefore I am” it really is I feel, therefore I am?
