What if consciousness is not what drives the human mind?

quote [ Most experts think that consciousness can be divided into two parts: the experience of consciousness (or personal awareness), and the contents of consciousness, which include things such as thoughts, beliefs, sensations, perceptions, intentions, memories and emotions.

It’s easy to assume that these contents of consciousness are somehow chosen, caused or controlled by our personal awareness – after all, thoughts don’t exist until until we think them. But in a new research paper in Frontiers of Psychology, we argue that this is a mistake. ]

This sounds very familiar to that Incognito book Steele made me read.

steele, I think you'll like this. And main link broke the prepper tool. Gave me a white page instead of the posting page and when I went to the posting page it wasn't in my cache. Thought you should know.

I'll add it to the list of shit to check out thanks.

Regarding the link, yeah this fits with narrator way of looking at consciousness. It's the listener, not the speaker. The seer, not the imaginer.
