At wider metaphysical level the consciousness inherent
in the smallest particle is its own "self knowledge" that is like an
encapsulated knowledge that determines how that particle is to appear to behave
such as be bound to electrons, single valence for a molecule, parity and spin
and charge etc.
A lovely concept! You seem to perceive a SCALE
of consciousness in this email from the particle to total consciousness (Gaia
in the West?) which is intuitively appealing and therefore interesting to
At higher life forms the consciousness is in Context
i.e. topic based if you want to verify it externally. All expressions are
through senses. But it is conceivable that a human is in coma but can not
express externally but is still conscious as it knows it is alive with severe
sensory limitations. <snip/>
Coming to cognitive consciousness at communication

You’re using the Western so-called “Object
oriented” method at least by analogy, IMHO, to taking the point-of-view

… if we could
notionally put a weight on the consciousness expressivity related to
understanding and knowledge and i realize that there is a spread there, we
could someday score these to be at some level of understanding,
A lovely concept, a consciousness scale. I
wonder what Western psychologists think about that? Indian mythology seems to
project so many complex gods and creatures, at least complex to me because I’m
Western to the core. Western mythology seems to project one resonant core
spectrum with the few major religions and science.
I would not today easily qualify to the responding
level in general relativity even though I taught a grad school course 40
How cognition and ontology are related - is my next
humble submission to John and others to respond?
P.S. Rich and Chris, Best regards and request that we
do not stop expressing ourselves in spite of occasional mis-communication as we
are working with multiple language and cultural backgrounds, Azamat would
hopefully also agree?
