Is it a result of a certain part of the brain?

@Bashar Doesntmatter,
Matt, it's a sort of illusion perpetrated by our dualistic tendencies. Because nothing is entirely anything while everything is partly something else, it's pretty obvious that there's consciousness everywhere. A sufficiently complex machine for instance would probably claim consciousness

The apodictical existential pantheist maintins that the Universe is Her body and all the activity therein Her thinking

In a sense Que the apodictical existential pantheist would agree inasmuch as the general principle that nothing is entirely anything precludes the absolute dualism distinguishing Her body from Her mind

Not under just usual US usage, as some of us might assert or furiously insist

@Bashar Doesntmatter,
For me we become more or less aware depending upon what state of consciousness we occupy.As to what consciousness is well that’s the ultimate question isn’t it.

@Bashar Doesntmatter,
Because the mind serves the will, so I think the answer is no.
Is it a result of the will
the will - the root from which my desires, thoughts and finally my actions come

@Jasper10,
I think consciousness can only be described as .. the “I am”.The “I am” has an awareness of not just the outward but the inward also.

@Jasper10,
However,the “i am” sits outside of consciousness because the “i am” is AWARE that there are 2 off consciousness type states i.e. manual and autopilot.In this respect the “i am” needs to be described as something else.
