The Fact of Consciousness

A Conscious Event from the Psycho Dabbler

Self-Conciousness: The Self as a Fact of Consciousness or Conscious event

Subjective awareness or self-consciousness is split off from objective consciousness pursuant to the conditioned perception of the individual body that seems to possess the self or mind perceiving it. The condition is the fact that such a self is referred to by the social environment; that is, the self-entity is an injected/introjected social concept. The self is identified with the desires of the organism, hence is conceived of as if the willing entity were itself an object, a landlord, as it were, inhabiting and possessing its body; that is, the physical self-object. The possession and mastery of the physical and nervous or energetic property, the bodily fact that is always changing, is imperfect because the body is a resisting mass, and, as the origin of self-will or will made conscious, the body or energetic mass retains, so to speak, a will of its own. In fact, the organism is a unity; its division into the subject – which is nothing but the inference of a willing self from its perceptions of the objective world set against it – and the objects in themselves – which can only be known according to the equipment provided – is artificial. In a word, the subjective self is a socially conditioned artifact. For convenience’s sake, we posit the subjective and objective moments of subject-object consciousness as if they were actually two objective factors or concepts of separate things dynamically perceived, hence we have constituted two concrete abstractions rooted in a fictitious difference.
