So you're saying this consciousness is something that can possibly be detected or measured rather than just being some illusion?
I definitely wouldn't rule it out.
You make some good points. It is indeed difficult to speculate much more about the conciousness without defining it properly, though that is easier said than done!
Until now I had not considered the 'roots' of conciousness, but I suppose assuming they exist in this physical universe is a necessary, albeit major assumption I must make to fit in with my earlier argument. Hmmm, the more I think about this the more mind bending it becomes!
