…… you may have noticed that small children don’t suffer from unconsciousness. They are thoroughly and completely engaged in the present moment, whether it’s good or bad. They delight in the simplicity of a flower. They can fall asleep on the floor when they are tired or scream like a banshee in public when something upsets them. For a child, there are few filters between the moment and the response.
Unconsciousness is a learned behavior we develop over time. But it’s also a byproduct of the way our brains react to perceived threats and how we respond to the societal, cultural, and technological input we receive (in massive volumes) every day.
