1. The Most Difficult Issue
Consciousness could be known by consciousness only. This is the most difficult issue in consciousness study. Consciousness which knows is ontologic consciousness. This is consciousness-as-such. What is known about is epistemic consciousness. This recursive relationship is the most difficult to explore. Although consciousness is singular, homogenous and indivisible, plurality and heterogeneity are introduced by the presence of the brain or a brain-like structure that can 'trap','hold', 'seize' and use consciousness for its expression. It is mind which camouflages consciousness as divided, and it is geometry of information which binds apparently divided segments of consciousness.
