I believe that all quantities, have qualities associated with them. Qualities are, in principle, inaccessible through quantitative means. For example, brains have minds, but you can't tell that by looking at them.
This must be true of all matter.
How would consciousness come from inanimate matter? It makes no sense that consciousness wasn't inherent. All matter must be "conscious" in some kind of way. The tricky thing is defining the word.
This interesting post got lost in the mix.
Steve, how do you think "consciousness" is retained? And what do you mean by consciousness?
