I've been picking on and off philosophic material (currently reading Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder) and instead of thinking about the most difficult questions that man makes himself, I rather go to the most primitive questions that man has asked himself since the dawn of time. What comes after death? Now some of my many realisations is that we cannot think about death without thinking about life, and what ensures us that we're alive? Some of the greatest philosophers have entitled consciousness as a possible answer. Being alive brings with itself a state of consciousness, what we still canot explain the mysteries of the brain. A very good enlightment about consciousness follows.
