Arousal. Awareness. Consciousness?

Scientists found a connection between the brainstem region involved in arousal and regions involved in awareness, two prerequisites for consciousness. (1)

We firmly believe that consciousness is being awake and aware. We believe we are more conscious when we are more arouse, part of the cosmos, doing things, thinking, speaking, running.

But we have been misled. And now we have treaded the wrong path for so long that there is no turning back.

Lost. Walking on thin ice.

Soon the ice will break.

And we will die. In a cold abyss.

We will find our self there.

Cold and unconscious.

Senseless and full of awareness.

Keeping the ice under our feet…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
