Simon Lewis: Don’t take consciousness for granted

Simon Lewis

A tv producer has a horrible car crash which puts him in a stage 3 coma for months. He experiences cosmic unity.

A theory– mankind developed conciousness to help us survive when the climate changed in Africa and modern humans were born.

But now we are retreating from conciousness. Brain injury, depression, etc, our minds are messed up. We face catastrophic global climate change, but instead of raising our conciousness we are retreating from it.

My take: Emotionally I agree, but factually the dude is probably wrong. Except that screen culture is bad for our minds.
