god sleeps in the rock
dreams in the plant
stirs in the animal
and awakens in man
Consciousness = Self-awareness? Meeting a transformatable yet unavoidable destiny? Ability to propose future actions and plan for consequensis with innumerable and questionable outcomes? mmmm...maybe. But only directional and only under orchestrated cicumstances of a multi-dimentional, outside of spatial realm, intelligence. See what I mean? (sorry for the spelling mistakes ... not a strong point.)
Perhaps Everything living has consciousness ...
But that is an else question what do we mean LIVING ONE?
