Produced Consciousness: Shapes of the Machiavellian Snake

Abstract
Consciousness, in the beginning of its scientific use, was considered to be material, i.e., to represent an attribute of substance or matter. During later periods, it was associated with learning processes. Based on questionnaires and interviews, a number of different definitions have made its learned content dependent on statistical measures of what people consciously know. However, statically and without a proper time-scale, it is impossible to identify causal links to the biological mechanisms, responsible for consciousness. Despite the fact that no satisfactory explanation exists at the morphogenetic level, speculations continue about what consciousness actually is about. As a first measure, it has been important to establish the... (More)
Consciousness, in the beginning of its scientific use, was considered to be material, i.e., to represent an attribute of substance or matter. During later periods, it was associated with learning processes. Based on questionnaires and interviews, a number of different definitions have made its learned content dependent on statistical measures of what people consciously know. However, statically and without a proper time-scale, it is impossible to identify causal links to the biological mechanisms, responsible for consciousness. Despite the fact that no satisfactory explanation exists at the morphogenetic level, speculations continue about what consciousness actually is about. As a first measure, it has been important to establish the quality (q) function of consciousness. Empirically, it is demonstrated that the (q) function, together with the developed Agent-action-Objective (AaO) formalism has the capacity to connect spinning strings to flowing consciousness. It will also be demonstrated that a biologically important link exists between changes in the flow and the production of various shapes of consciousness. By referring to the balanced states of Orientation that involve (1) Heretic for the original Italian text and (2) Proof for its English translation, the latter signals an important deviation due to the ethical conduct of the translator. Moreover, the Intention in the original is emerging as (1) Warning meanwhile the English translation is resulting in (2) Confession, which again is markedly different from the original Italian import. A full description will be based on the established functional text geometry. This includes both potential and free energy surfaces. The calculation of their dynamic (flow) and thermodynamic (fusion) properties are derived directly from real time imaging procedures. (Less)
