well, this is the question that i have been asking myself for a few years. we all have that thing called "consciousness". it's a mystery, but it gets a lot more complicated when you mix it with science.
there are a lot of cells in our body, which are created by atoms, which are created by smaller things, and it goes and on and on. so, when we go really deep, there is a scale which is so down low you that can't even imagine that creates us all and i'm not even sure that there is a bottom, maybe it goes smaller and smaller forever. but we can say that we're created by some little things that creates some bigger things that creates us all and our consciousness in the end. or maybe that's not even the end, maybe we are some kind of things that serves a bigger creature just by breathing or something. maybe our sun is just the core of a bigger-type atom. i don't know, it's anyone's guess.
let's go back to our scale. when we get into a battle it's much more easier to lose an arm than losing your head. but deep down they are all the same thing, except they are not. they are like generals and infantry. but why is that? with kingdoms or democracies or any other form of management, are we creating something like that has been ruling our bodies or cells unconsciously? our brain rules the body because they are much more sophisticated or advanced, but still they are all the same in the end. it doesn't make sense. my fingernails are just slaves that sacrifices their life daily for my brain. weird.
so what i really want to ask is who am i? i talk and think and write these lines with my consciousness, but what controls that consciousness? hormones? evolutionary knowledge that has been scratched to our dna? if so, doesn't it make us all slaves? or something else?
i don't know man, i'm so confused that i can't even explain myself. if anyone understood what i tried to ask, an answer will be really appreciated.
