What Conciousness Is

Consciousness, per se (and substantially), represents the divine in man. Consciousness is a God-given attribute — inscrutable because it is divine, beyond definition because it is a spiritual thing, utterly transcending any of our objective or material experiences.  Now this also causes a moment of pause, because we know that we are now in the presence of a serious dilemma.  If consciousness is inevitably divine, then we must explain the margin of error in which we find in it.  Because we are not able to assume that there is a margin of error in the consciousness of God.  Consequently, if consciousness is inaccurate, if man can come to certain conscious conclusions that are not true, then consciousness cannot be totally and completely divine, because if it is, we associate it inevitably with the element of the infallible.
