Where Does Consciousness Come From?

33 posts in this topic

Hey there,
I heard from Leo about this assumption of consciousness coming from brain. I realized that I hold this believe very strongly. Now I am trying to let go of it. Have you ever thought about this question?
I'm not looking for any logic or well argumented answers. I am curious about your perspectives.
Thanks for answers and love ya guys.

How the material brain produces our immaterial sense of awareness?

Consciousness transcends brain.  You are not body, nor mind.  Brain doesn't produce consciousness; you will not find it there because it doesn't have a location.  You don't live IN consciousness.  You ARE consciousness.

Certain plants grows in specific ways to protect themselves, some of them are even carnivorous.

They don't have a brain :)


If you want the moon, do not hide from the night
If you want a rose, do not run from the thorns
If you want love, do not hide from yourself

From God of whom our soul is a tiny fraction.

@DandaLeo also said that the brain is an idea, and fairly so. Counciousness comes from nothingness, which is in essence everything that surrounds us and us ourselves. You can't define it, it's that magical, like existence and life itself. Stop asking and you'll feel it for yourself, and the question(s) instantly disappears.

God was always there and will always be there, something like infinity. We can't ask where does SPACE come from. Where does TIME come from ? 

We can't ask where does INFINITY come from ?

Then what is God :) who always been there? Please define God. :)

Time and space are mental constructions when conciousness self reflect upon itself. Time and space hasn't come from anywhere because they don't exist. ;) but what really exists is an illusion...of  time, space, distance and gravity.

@Maxx I think it is everywhere at all time, but contracts and expands. When density is high the perspective from that point is very focused and gives a clear picture of feelings/thoughts/sensations. If density becomes lower it spreads in your body and you preceive a more non-biased sensation not relative to any other perspective/body part.

Expansion and Contraction are key in defining each other and make the flow of awareness possible.

It comes from infinite potential, it could be said that consciousness is the initial form of infinite potential.

The Infinite is beginningless, so consciousness cannot be the beginning of it.

You misunderstand, I did not say consciousness is the beginning of infinite potential.

What exactly is infinite potential? That which is finite cannot produce anything that is infinite. The only thing that has infinite potential is the Infinite itself.
