More on the Stream of Conciousness...................

William James
 
 
 
Conciousness seems to be a stream of thoughts
 
 
These thoughts are entirely separate from each other...   Each thought follows one after another....
 
.....and yet somehow they combine to give a sense of unified consciousness.
 
This is because thoughts that enter our awareness at the same time form a "pulse" within the stream of consciousness..
 
These pulses jolt us from one conclusion, or "resting pace" to another......but continue to stream onwards...
 
Our consciousness is constantly evolving....
 
We know the meaning of "consciousness" so long as no asks us to define it....
