Reference to “consciousness” opens yet another can of quantum worms.
Quantum weirdness implies that consciousness transcends the individual, that it is somehow shared, seamless, constant, everywhere.
That view holds that there is just one consciousness.
But not everyone chooses to comprehend and embrace this idea.
That is, some of us are more or less aware of consciousness than others.
Perhaps awareness is more properly the term we should use when we are comparing the so-called “consciousness” of individuals.
