How are you reading this!? I mean, congratulations on your brain’s ability to process optical inputs into usable information, but a good computer and camera can “read” like that too. Somehow, you’re also perceiving a *conscious experience,* like feeling vaguely amused by how meta this sentence is. Neuroscience isn’t yet sure how our brains all bridge the innocuous but crucial gap between information and awareness. The possible answers have different and wide-ranging implications for our society, depending on how the concepts and data are interpreted. Consequentially, understanding the nature of consciousness might be humanity’s most important (and personal) mystery.
