This article takes a Self-Actualising perspective of Consciousness and is formed from my prior 5 articles on the topic of Formation.
Consciousness may be defined as a Being.
Think of Consciousness as a system, that is interactive within a larger system and contains subsystems that are interactive and that contain further subsystems.
From the articles on Formation we can begin to elicit observable properties that form the system of Consciousness or the being that is the Consciousness.
The most defining properties relevant to Self-Actualisation are:
- It contains beliefs or programming that grow.
- It functions utilising a process called events or moments.
- It deliberately evolves, utilising information from events run through its programming to create output.
- Outputs are the realisation of beliefs.
- Outputs are direction or intentions or thoughts.
- Outputs maybe compounded or made manifest in larger ways through expansion and repetition.
- Programming or beliefs form Identity. Identity is the formation of “I am” and “I am that I am” a singular Being.
- Evolution for Consciousness is the expansion or growth of Identity (beliefs and programming).
Meaning: Conscious is being that
To be conscious is “being that”, a rock is being that. Look to the Self-Actualising properties above to determine how similar it is to your individual being or consciousness. A dog is being that, look to the Self-Actualising properties above to determine how similar it is to your individual being or consciousness. Another person is being that, look to the Self-Actualising properties above to determine how similar it is to your individual being or consciousness.
The fuller your awareness of the rock, the dog, the other person, will enable deeper understanding of all this in relation to you. All perceptions or understandings are in relation to your beingness.
Meaning: Being is that which exists
That which exists is a perception or understanding of data or information processed from the environment.
Other Beings or all that exists may be thought of as, influencers. The entirety of influencers constitutes the environment or all of life or nature.
Being is also an awareness and awareness is the knowledge or perception of a situation or fact.
Meaning: Levels of Consciousness may be defined as levels of awareness and beingness.
All that exists, exists in relationship to all other parts. The parts constitute the whole that is the larger system or greater level of consciousness.
In the context of Levels of Consciousness the consciousness or being maybe viewed as a system. Systems are a machination as well as an interconnected network that always function with the environment. For a system to sustain itself it must demonstrate that it contains the knowledge to maintain itself in a moment. This is the capacity of awareness, awareness meaning knowledge or perception of a situation or fact.
Remember that being is that which exists, the levels of beingness may be thought of as a beings size and functionality. A level could mean amount of awareness and size and functionality of the system or the consciousness or the being.
