The topic of consciousness is highly debated across scientific and philosophical fields alike.

So, what does it mean to possess human consciousness? What’s the difference between conscience and consciousness?

Looking at consciousness psychology , there are two major components of our human consciousness:

The first is the development of the free will.

Free will is thought to have manifested as a biological necessity, where pre-human entities found it evolutionarily advantageous to be able to discern between certain specific ideas.

That is, free will allows us to ana...

The second major component of human consciousness likely developed as a byproduct of free will. At some point, this hypothetical pre-human entity acknowledged that it was making decisions.

  • A state of mind is only attainable if one is receptive

There are certain physical ailments that alter the mind, of which dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are prime examples.

Certain psychoactive substances also serve todecrease our sense of conscious awareness. Take alcohol, for instance.

When we become hyper-aware, we enter the realm of the superconscious. An altered state of consciousness where our individual energy and the energy of the universe as a whole are acting together, in parallel.

So, what about these last four of our seven levels of consciousness?

Where do they point, and where can they guide us?
