Me and My Consciousness

Avalokateshvera at Angkor, author’s photo

I have no standing to write about the phenomenon of human consciousness. It used to be that you qualified as a contributor to the topic based on religious or philosophical credentials. I did major in philosophy as an undergraduate almost fifty years ago, but that’s not only inadequate — it’s irrelevant. Now consciousness commentators are neuroscientists and while I read a lot, I have no stature.
