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.
