What is consciousness?
Consciousness is not a thing. When we add "ness" to a word we turn an adjective into an abstract noun in order to talk about it. The suffix "-ness" means "the state or quality of". Thus Happiness is the state of being happy. Being happy exists as an experience, but happiness as an independent thing does not exist.
The same with consciousness. It does not exist as a "thing" . What is true is that I am conscious, as is each and every one of us. It is an essential, ever-present quality of all experience. The noun consciousness simply allows us to talk about the fact in a more generalized way.
In this respect, consciousness needs no definition. It is self-evident. I am aware that I am aware.
This simple fact needs no argument, reason or research. It is beyond doubt.
An old legend goes as follows In ancient time the creator wanted to hide something from the Humans until they were ready to see it. He gathered all the other creatures of creation to ask them for their advice. The eagle said give it to me and I will take it to the highest mountain in all the land. But the Creator said no. One day they will conquer the mountain and find it. The Salmon said leave it with me and I will hide it at the very bottom of the ocean. But the creator said no. For humans are explorers at heart and one day they will go there too. The Buffalo said I will take it and bury it in the heart of the great plains, But the creator said no. For one day even the skin of the earth will be ripped open and they will find it there. The creatures of creation were stumped But then and old blind mole spoke up Why don’t you put it inside them that’s the very last place they will look. The creator said it is done.
