Subject: Concerning Conciousness
I have concluded that conciousness is governed by the idea we have of ourselves. This idea is widely referred to as the ego or self.

When someone is asked "who are you?", I could almost guarantee they will tell you their name. What is a name? It is given to you a birth to identify who you are and what family you belong to. Your name is a bi-product of language.

I further conclude that conciousness is the bi-product of chaos. We are nothing and everthing at the same time, and we realize ourselves. We are the manifestation of the complexity of our universe.

That was me trying to be a philosopher. This was all inspired by an Alan Watts lecture on youtube and a schedule 1. Thoughts, comments, and criticism welcome...

Where did you conclude that?

Isn't this inter-locution too, pretty much, the product of language and your world that of your private language? [ I read Chomsky other day wink]

My only complain is: Conclusion should follow a body. You have given pithy conclusions and no propositions at all. thumb up
