Why can consciousness not be detected? (consciousness as “the larger energy field”, where you are talking about.)

Clive, stand up and take a step towards yourself……it is not a trick question….it is impossible to take a step towards yourself, because you are to close to yourself.
Consciousness is to close to itself to be detected, everything you detect is consciousness.

Again, Olive, you are quoting the article that I posted, not my own words.

But it is interesting, certainly. I sometimes think "the eyes cannot see themselves"

Good question! My first response was: “none”. No difference.

But the word “memory” is usually reserved for things associated with this particular life, this set of experiences particular to this body, since its birth. For me, I think human consciousness contains all the memories of all the human beings who have ever been born on this planet (many of them obviously also having died) since the brain started to develop.

(It may go further back than this also).

yes Clive no diference... the consciousness is memory, the consciousness is this part of memory which is printed through the "self filter". printed when the the first translation from senses are memorised as something separate... and then born a kind of memory which is named the consciousness...

Yes, fundamentally it is so. It came to me recently that "we are living through dead people's memories".

Just to say that i will resume my pending dialogues (and PMs!) as soon as possible, as i'm having a hard time trying to recover lost data from a 2.TB HD that yesterday decided to say "bye, bye" ... :-(
