Where Does Consciousness Come From?

Electrical activity doesn't explain how a physical substance can create non-physical condition like consciousness. Religions explain consciousness as a gift from God, embedded into our bodies to guide us through this world.

Scientists and sleep experts know when people normally dream. Typically, you dream during the rapid-eye movement(REM) portion of the sleep cycle. You can see when a person is experiencing REM sleep because their eyes zip to and their bodies may twitch and jerk, too. The brain's electrical patterns are very active in this phase, just like when you're awake.
