Today, on the radio, I heard two famous scientists discussing consciousness in clinical terms, and brain research, which was in many ways fascinating.
One, a nobel laureate, said: “Awareness is a form of consciousness.”
While this assessment might sound correct, I would disagree. Awareness is a form of art. You can raise your awareness, but not consciousness. You can’t have a form of consciousness; it is already whole and not open to divisions or categories.
What did you learn today?
How do you know the scientist was wrong?
And what’s the difference. I don’t think about such things when I paint.
Awareness is a form of insight, not consciousness. This is a good question, and I encourage you to intuitively investigate these matters further.
Seeing beyond illusion is awareness and art.
