General Psychology: Consciousness Cheat Sheet (DRAFT) by

Cheat sheet for consciousness

This is a draft cheat sheet. It is a work in progress and is not finished yet.

What is consci­ous­ness?

Consci­ousness is not the same as awareness or cognition. It is a self-i­llu­min­ating phenomenon that helps a person relate to oneself in terms of an identity, person­ality and self.
There is no single stream of consci­ousness but rather multiple channels, each of which handle their own tasks. All of these channels operate in parallel, a kind of chaos of consci­ous­ness. The organi­zation of those channels is determined by our social groups and culture.
