Consciousness is knowledge, intuition or feeling that a subject has of himself to statements and actions, along with the ability to make moral judgments about good and evil.[1]

"Philosophers have used the term ‘consciousness’ for four main topics: knowledge in general, intentionality, introspection (and the knowledge it specifically generates) and phenomenal experience.... Introspection and phenomenality seem independent, or dissociable, although this is controversial."
- From the Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy Online[2]

David Chalmers, summer 2014

"There's nothing we know about more directly.... but at the same time it's the most mysterious phenomenon in the universe."
