Without consciousness, we would have no pain, but also no joy. No excess of hate, but also no excess of love and creation. So it seem that consciousness is a sticky spot to find ourselves in. It can either create an amazing life or one of pain and suffering.

Well as we know knowledge is power and even further, awareness will always set you FREE!
According to Antonio Damasio, while we have an individual self when we are conscious, the experience of consciousness is something share by everyone.
