Discovery and Distinction of Awareness, Consciousness and Cumconsciousness  Deepak Loomba (Delhi, DELHI India)   P1

In this paper, the author has discovered & distinguished awareness and consciousness along with their origins respective origins and constituents. Awareness is very often used as a replacement of consciousness. Through this paper the author has described with examples what is awareness its types, its origin and it's distinction from consciousness. Awareness is discovered to be the inverse of measure of stimuli-response latency, subject to state of responsiveness of an aware entity (observer) remaining largely, irrevocably, unaltered. Origin of Awareness lie in non-spontaneous birth of systems with an observer constituent. Consciousness is a state of aware observer constituent of a system, when it can interpret, influence and alter changes; sense external (higher systemic complexity level) & internal (lower systemic complexity level) stimuli, cognize and influence changes with 'intent', in events that are not smaller in duration & higher in frequency than the threshold below which the principle of observer's causality can be violated. Concomitantly, sensing, cognition & alteration of one's external & internal environs happens for diverse reasons, but with ubiquity of at least one of the below-mentioned: [1] Survival of one's state of responsiveness without any irrevocable damage, thus exhibiting a resistance to one's de-classification as a resource; [2] Preservation of the 'capability to interpret'. In latter case in case decay or abrupt silencing of this capability is imminent to oneself, then preservation is exercised through transfer of capability to interpret; [3] to distinguish, through interpretation - aware animate observers from inanimate and non-observers. Especially those, which belong to one's own class of animate observers from other classes, inanimate and non-observers. This capability laid the origin of : (a) the feeling of self, (b) and connect using the 7th sense of vicariousness; [4] to distinguish through interpretation, new events from those recurring and tag (characterize) new ones with valence. The event importance or priority magnitude of valence. This too gives rise to the feeling of self as in (2) above. In the process of distinguishing awareness and consciousness, the author discovered the need to create a new class which he termed 'cumconsciousness', which includes subconscious processes, besides those that are conscious.
