With an immenent cold season ahead (let's forget for a second that global warming exists and that it will taint my prediction ), I think we may be in need of another heated debate. Let us thaw out any frozen brains in the forum. How would you define consciousness? Can it be merely justified with scientific and medical terms? Or can we soundly explain such phenomenon with religious ideologies? Who are we to think that we're intelligent human beings, with powerful tools such as Mathematics and Physics, which will eventually lead us to understand the mistery of the universe? Is it a paradox to state such a thing because the universe itself has a conscious of its own?
