What Is Consciousness?

A brief investigation of consciousness may lead to the idea that we have a consciousness that experiences things—consciousness is the self and the world around us is other.

Vasubandhu, the influential 4th/5th century ce Buddhist monk, scholar, and philosopher, expressed another view, "Everything conceived as self or other occurs in the transformation of consciousness."

Neither the self or the other is consciousness. They're merely conceptions occurring within the process of consciousness.
