Consciousness is perhaps the biggest riddle in nature. In the first part of this three part video series, we explore the origins of consciousness and take a closer look on how unaware things became aware.
This video was made possible by a grant from the Templeton World Charity Foundation.

My theory is that consciousness is just groups of thought and consciousness is just a construct for thinking. And I think a thought is just the circles and rings that the brain creates through electromagnetic pulses through synapses, these rings find information and then travels the ring through valuable parts of the brain to find the components of that particular thought. Then repeats the ring at least once to build on that “thought”

Wow, what nonsense. A lot of ‘probablies’ in this video. If you don’t know what you are talking about, it is ‘probably’ best to be silent. If we don’t yet understand consciousness, which is onviously the case, than don’t spread nonsense to the general public like this.

Are we saying the "sense of self" is consciousness? Or this too is an object to be conscious of and just a construct of our mind, mind, which is also probably an object to be conscious of and maybe also a tool of the consciousness to interact with nature? In that sense, can we not also say that the basic life forms and us humans have the same consciousness, nothing there to evolve, just different levels of "the sense of self" + "memories" + "Intelligence". Like in a deep sleep, we are conscious but there's nothing to be conscious of. Are we really that sure that, matter->complex matter->life->brain->consciousness that's how it happened, or the consciousness cam first! The wavefunctions to collapse and an object to take a solid form, we need a conscious observer, so it seems like matter/nature needs a conscious object to exist in this "solid/real" form!

The form of consciousness is like an ATOM. The form of the universe is like an ATOM to. It is a fractal. the universe is an orbital inside the consciousness . around the center of the universe exists the general. consepts are the elements of reason. life is an orbital inside the universe. deep inside life exists man. Reason is a circle around the man. Neuroscience maps the machine, but ignores consciousness because consciousness is the program.

"We have no idea what consciousness is, or how to define it, but it is likely to have occurred through evolution" = That is the most unscientific and ridiculous thing I have heard. We don't even know what "living thing" is. By the analogy in this video a crystal would be living, it sustains itself and needs energy from the environment. Are crystals living? I mean, an awareness of the environment does come in handy to a crystal, and it has evolved for a lot longer the DNA and RNA. Surely, if a Trichopax can move towards its food, it is aware of its environment. We can't put a boundary on the distance to decide what awareness is. If you have a blond dog that moves haphazardly until it finds food, is it not aware? I have just watched the part on the worm and realised this video is so flawed I think I will stop now, we should probably wait until we know what consciousness is. But this video is ridiculous.

@Magical like this π It really doesn't. There is no scientific theory that predicts consciousness. In order to be science, something has to be theorised and then make testable predictions. To suggest that consciousness is an adaptation of evolution when we don't even know what it is and under what circumstances it can be formed is quite ridiculous. It is similar to religion.

I wonder what's the angle of the Templeton Fundation sponsoring Kurzgesagt, which - as far as I've seen - does not mention god or intelligent design anywhere in their videos. Historically, the mission of the Templeton Fundation was to prove god by science. This led to funding numerous god-proving initiatives - like early support for intelligent design (dressed-up creationism: look up "Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District", videos with Ken Miller, a catholic and key witness against intelligent design are quite amazing) or Study of the Therapeutic Effects of Intercessory Prayer, to name a couple (all failed to evidence any god or magic) - and skewing grant-granting into direction of god-minded scientists and endeavours. Who knows - perhaps after the death of John Templeton and slight re-branding, the foundation rid itself of theistic biases. To be fair, after aforementioned prayer study (conducted still under John Templeton) showed that patients who were prayed for were not getting any better than control group (in fact, they were getting worse), the fundation did not try to dress it up and subsequently gave up further prayer studies :)

Why do living things need food? I know it is to grow and survive, but why can't we stay at a particular state. Why is the state so constantly changing that initiates hunger in living beings? What is the explanation for an ever changing state. Especially when you think about the newtonian physics on particles, an object continues in its state, until an external force is acted upon it. So why are living beings state changing all the time. What is that agent of change?

Deeper consciousness can't even define or quantify itself so what makes us think at a superficial level we can define it? Consciousness is not simply awareness or behaviour either! Those are simply some aspects of consciousness :-) so back to the drawing-board :-) Clue: Humans exist in a 'field' of Consciousness that the brain and body interact with and each human is a tiny part of existence connected to everything in existence both living and not living.
Stephen Nixey
Stephen Nixey 27 days ago
@Farhan Fiaz Alvi This is fine and I present no evidence here either as I do not have to or have any need to sway another opinions or views in any matter. I found it 'hard' to believe' 'things' in my past, it was easier to 'disbelieve'! Science may not ever find the 'truth' it seeks either! My hypotheses started some time ago. If we do not experiment within ourselves and with our own conscious or awareness how do we gain empirical insight into what we actually are? The world has relied on other people (nothing wrong or bad here) and so called 'experts' and 'teachers' for millennia and history shows the accuracy of such experts, much dogma exists in science and 'belief' nowadays in all areas genetics, neuroscience etc. My hypotheses are based on empirical observations (and self empirical) and not fallacious vicarious teachings of others. The 'belief' (materialistic reductionist belief system) in most science is that there has to be a physical action, physical reason, physical explanation for 'everything' (this has been long inherited in our 'thought' though much of academia). I was taught by own findings and experiences early in life that most I was taught and told at school was not factually 'true' or correct by any 'reason' so that was my base assumption and guide in helping me figure out what people/humans are (what I am and 'who' I am - true Identity without image or fears that drive such). We (humans and probably all animals) are both physical in the physical reality and we have 'non-physical aspects', emotional and 'thought' energy connected and one with everything in existence (as after all science tells us we are purely energy in every aspect). The non-physical aspects is simply our consciousness coupled with our 'awareness' which more than probably holds much long term memory, 'imagination', 'illusions', 'truths', emotional energy and other items that is not for disclosure here and another subject altogether. The quantum area of science is starting to push this forward now especially with the 'observer problem' and the older 'Double Slit Experiment' (these being external experiments by 'experts') we do not have to be a so called 'expert' to experiment internally with our own states of being or emotions we simply need the help of our deeper aspects of consciousness which I use daily to guide me away from and dissolve illusory 'belief' and 'disbelief'. So simply put to have a hypotheses with own experiments coupled with what is 'truer' and inner inquiry no further external evidence is needed (however am open to evidence in 'truth') when we start to use our deeper attributes over our superficial 'mind' (even 'mind' is illusory and does not exist in 'truth' or 'reality' or 'What Is'). And although I still have some 'belief' and 'disbelief' within me (to which I am aware) I do not use this as my guide and often ignore the emotions, story and thoughts that arrive with those as they are all self-limiting (and not the absolute 'truth' in many situations). I do not use many of my 'thoughts' as a guide in fact even if it makes me feel 'bad' I use that as an indication to need to clear something that is illusory. Experiment within yourself and find our illusions there are many that humans live with causing them issues daily (as I found out the hard way). The physical reality is not purely the only reality there is, we interact with physicality with our non-physical realities consciousness and awareness (which is an aspect of consciousness and holds and is responsible allot more than current science with lead us to or be able to explain - limited 'mindset'). We do not need science to tell us we are experiencing 'something' as after all science is purely a tool and a tiny part of 'What Is'. Even I do not 100% know what the moon is made of? we can only postulate from presented evidence as I have not been there!, however I have more understanding with my way hypotheses of how a caterpillar, pupa can morph into a butterfly without any brain in the pupa as it's liquid, science and biology gets confused at this juncture. And (this statement is simply to open your mindset and not as critique) - You based your question on one assumption, that being science has proven and can prove everything!, just because there is no evidence that something does not 'exist' does not mean it does not! And simply as 98% of people 'think' one thing, does not make that one thing 'true', even intuition can lie :-) I wish you well.

Consciousness is an emergent property of a biological brain which provides the illusion that we are free agents in control of our actions, when in reality we are controlled by our instincts, emotions and other external stimuli coming from within and without. These factors influence us to make decisions that we cannot consciously explain or justify because they lie outside of our conscious mind's perception

Here's a good description of what consciousness is. Close your eyes. Ignore all senses in your body. Don't think about anything. Forget who you are. Now, look inside yourself. If you are not conscious, you will find nothing. If you are conscious, you will find awareness. That's it. That's what consciousness is. You are a thing that knows it's a thing.

These are all senses that the brain uses to become aware of it's surroundings, but none of it actually requires consciousness if the brain is sophisticated enough. Consciousness seems so impossible, and yet it so obviously exists.
Farhan Fiaz Alvi
Farhan Fiaz Alvi 29 days ago
@Todos Locos This is what I've posited too. Cool to know someone else thinks of it the same way. The reason I make the same argument you do is because we've made intelligent systems like self driving cars who can sense alot more than even us humans can. And we all know they aren't conscious.
Todos Locos
Todos Locos 29 days ago
@Farhan Fiaz Alvi Well, yeah. The senses we feel are transmitted through neurons to the brain where it processes them to understand the world around it. That doesn't have anything to do with awareness. Yes, the brain becomes aware of its surroundings, but there is no need for it to actually know it's a thing. Again, if you ignore any impulse in your brain, all you're left with is awareness. If you took that away, there is a possibility that our brains and bodies would continue on living without us. They might just continue to gather and process information, only without us really in there. tl;dr, the five senses are the way in which our brain gathers information about the world. That has nothing to do with an awareness of being
