Sorry, for some reason the posted clips here don't work for me and I haven't figured out why. So, can't watch it.

offtopic: Dom, it must be a browser problem/incompatibility. Any adblocks that you're running (though they shouldn't really interfere)? Or you need to update the usual suspects (adobe flash, etc.).

Of course, you can always quote the post containing the link (you do not need to actually post a reply) and just copy the link itself and paste it in your browser. That is, if you really want to see it.

RE: Consciousness
I checked the documentary. He showed few interesting experiments, though i heard for most of them before from other sources. But he never really defined what he mean by consciousness.


I think the right the right expression for consciousness is "a FEELING that something exists". And it s important to know that it falls in the category of feelings (emotions, pain....) because we have some ideas what feelings are and how they can (not) be studied.

RE: Consciousness
I saw consciousness as simply a huge extension of an important part of what defines life:

Reaction to stimuli.
