1Consciousness is learned, not inherited genetically.
Feral children do not develop self-awareness, language or concepts of
relationship, though they share our basic genetic code.
The nature of consciousness
2In our lives, we’re constantly spiraling around the
living systems prism to polish, learn and integrate
all three sides.
We may pause to focus on one type of consciousness for a moment, an
extended time or even a lifetime.
Our journey around the spiral is influenced by the focus of our surrounding
culture. The current Western culture is focused on divergent awareness, to
the near exclusion of the other types of consciousness or intelligence.
