This is believed because the feeling gives it to them.
But if man look more closely, it can be realized that the brain and not a "spirit-consciousness" that is outside of them controls us.
(For normal daily life, it is usually irrelevant to know that the brain controls one: you act and respond to that for an important event.
But it is interesting for those who want to know why they act and react.)
When something is important to us, such as the dangerous, the unusual or the new, the decisions or activities of the midpoints (so the neural networks) cross a certain threshold in the brain, it intensifies our senses. As a result, you perceive the outer and inner world more intensively, consciously. You experience it more insistently.
The amplified senses, so the perception, then send the recorded information to the brain - especially to the midpoints, which ultimately (mostly with their feelings) may provide a change. This result is perceived again, etc.
If you ultimately decide against his feelings, then you can get a bad gut feeling.
(This allows people to be absolutely blind to facts.) - It is impossible for them to consciously perceive something in areas that are excluded by the midpoint mechanics.)
But if the brain is activated by mostly strong external or internal stimuli, then it can expand its scope by means of corresponding goals, which can also be newly formed and further stimulate the consciousness.
But how could one explain that, despite these facts, people still believe, their consciousness decides?
Answer: It is probably due to the pleasant feeling about free will, which feeds the illusions of total control over oneself, and to the belief in metaphysics, which particularly includes religious aspects.
Believing that they have a free will, they cannot believe that they are only guided by goals in themselves and have "influence" only through the information of the amplified senses that consciousness provides to the brain.
And another question: how is it possible that most people still believe that consciousness is a mental activity (mind in the sense of metaphysical)?
Answer: Because they have learned so because they do not look at the consciousness more closely because they do not want to rethink.
They believe in a spirit, something that makes them feel.
But this is just a feeling, without the slightest proof that there is such a metaphysical mind.
This belief is supported by many "experts" who have fortified it in the past, and today professionals, such as various philosophers and psychologists hang on the lips. They cannot prove the immaterial mind, but cheerfully maintain that there is such a thing.
Ultimately, through this definition of consciousness - it is merely perception - we would strengthen our self-knowledge.
I can assure from my own experience: The experience in all its facets is not limited by this.
The consciousness (the perception) does not control, but gives only information, so to speak "recommendations" to the brain; to the midpoints of the brain. These decide how and if they use them.
If the answers given by the brain are not satisfactory for other midpoints, then awareness (the perception) can be activated. These amplified senses then provide information to the brain so that it may find better answers.
For self-knowledge, the knowledge of how the goals or midpoints correlate with the consciousness (of perception) is of great value. Because the brain - with the goal thus formed - gets a real view of itself.
Thus, the goal of reflection can be activated more intensively, the clearer it becomes, the clearer it becomes that everything had to happen the way it did.
Here are some definitions of consciousness:
On the topic of consciousness an example from life:
If an athlete, such as an archer, wants to hit the very midpoint, then his brain needs accurate information. The Sagittarius achieves this by strengthening his senses, thus concentrating his consciousness (his perception) as far as possible on the outside world.
This also activates the midpoint-mechanics and only records the information that is important for the target.
The final impulse to shoot the arrow makes his brain, more precisely; the fine control in him: the feelings - not his consciousness.
Finally: I talked to many people about the subject of consciousness and the brain. The conclusion was that almost everyone shied away from the insight that only the brain makes the decisions. I often heard, "But then I would be a slave to my brain."
I replied, "Everything you've done so far has been through the decisions in your brain. This will continue to be the case in the future. Your ME, your will are part of the brain.
With this insight, you can see the world more realistically - without this insight, and with the belief in an ME, or a free will as spirits that somehow float in space, the midpoint-mechanics make it impossible to look at these realities. "
The word "consciousness" is heavily burdened with esoteric, metaphysical, religious adjectives.
Especially the expressions "mental" or "spiritual" cause ambiguity, because it does not explicitly mean the brain (because only here can perception and knowledge be held and stored), but mostly implicitly (and thus usually also something supernatural) is meant.
And finally, I would like to make a suggestion: Since consciousness is always perception, but it is often for the supernatural (mind) or as (mental) control and decision-making in man - such as, consciousness expansion '- it would be good, the definition " Consciousness is perception (normal or amplified) "to clarify again and again.
