The subject of consciousness has been an exciting one to write, but it has also been overwhelming. Breathtaking to the extent that even in the Twenty-First Century there exists so much we don’t know and understand about brain anatomy, mind-body interactivity, consciousness/unconciousness, and perception/apperception. The need to understand our brain and its ability to have consciousness, awareness, comprehension, and the acquiring of new knowledge will continue to entice scientists, neurologists, philosophers, and psychologists far into the future. In my desire to understand these amazing human natural marvels, I designed the CACK Model. I created this model so I could have a guide and a map I could refer to in studying how consciousness eventually leads to new knowledge —> including useful knowledge of myself.
I sought to develop a state-of-the-art paradigm having an overall and broad view of strategies I could use in interacting with the events and happenings in my life. A major focus of mine in the Theory of Balanceology and the Balancetherapy Treatment Model is how to surface, emerge, and advance the levels of consciousness to awareness, awareness to comprehension, and finally comprehension onto useful knowledge. In addition, I wanted to construct a systematic operational model that allows me to have better judgment related to my decision-making. I view this model as a fine-tuning iterative process that neuronically progresses from a pre-condition of consciousness, onto awareness, onto comprehension, and finally the acquisition of new knowledge. I suggest this model is a repetitive process of proliferation capable of ever increased levels of inquiry and insight. I present the CACK Model as an incremental and sequential process related to consciousness, awareness, comprehension, and the acquiring of useable knowledge. In a later post, I will present a CuACK Model that applies to the unconscious and apperceptual world. The overall flow of the model follows this pattern:
