Human consciousness can be described as amazing

Human consciousness can be described as amazing, unifying, and vital for the success of mankind throughout the globe. We all partake in the game of life, and yet philosophical thinkers spend so much time questioning the source and meaning of the voice inside our head along with the physical sensations we experience all day. Perhaps the ability to think as deeply and as limitlessly as the human mind still leaves us unqualified to pinpoint consciousness. We can ask questions about the experience, but so far no distinguished authority on what it means to be human has provided a worthy answer. It can be hard to analyze the human experience without full labels for all living things on our planet. Despite our immense knowledge, the human race is missing important information on the natural world. We can argue day in and day out about which religion is right or which planet will be the next to host human life, but the fact remains that the very planet we stand on remains a mystery. I’d say that as a collective race, humans believe themselves to be the utmost authority on all that is. This is, to me, an overconfident stance and could be why the mind struggles to grasp the idea of a more powerful figure responsible for the conscious we live with and the world we live in. I wonder if one day the real son of God came down from Heaven with the promise of life everlasting for all people, if collectively the people of Earth would doubt intensely the Creator.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
