Well the definitions I have read are totally wrong...consciousness is not an awareness.....no...rather one is aware of a consciousness state one RESIDES IN
Awareness and consciousness are different things.
I have given you a practical experiential example that proves this.
We can operate in idle mode and as I have said most people do all the time....but manual mode (in the moment) is better if one can learn to do this more and more.
When you truly embrace these concepts and learn to stay in manual more and more then many more intriguing questions arise.
