CACK Model: Consciousness

Consciousness is a self-organizing process of nonmaterial quality (mind) coming from a material quantity (brain). In the Theory of Balanceology’s CACK Model the C stands for Consciousness, the A for Awareness, the second C for Comprehension, and the K stands  for Knowledge. Consciousness brings different levels of awakefulness and alertness. As I point out in my theory, all living creatures have some level of environmental intelligence and alertness. But for humans there is some advanced autopoietic interaction that allows for consciousness to emerge from brain matter. This process of self-organization and self-creation requires us to be awake-and-alert to what we experience and perceive. Consciousness requires us to go into any situation with “eyes wide open,” because it will  allow us to be awake-and-alert.
