Let me start by saying I have been researching consciousness heavily for the last few months. I think I was driving home one day when I thought "what if our consciousness dies every night and a new one is created when we wake up", this thought somewhat freaked me out because we could be fading into oblivion every night without knowing it, and every morning a new consciousness would be created with all our memories and everything that makes us us. So anyways I went on and after watching tons of videos looking through hundreds of Wikipedia pages I find that nobody really knows, so i started thinking, and started to try to explain it myself. Could it be that our brains are not where our consciousness lies? Are our brains just projectors that relays information, senses, and feelings from the physical world to our consciousness, or minds eye? For example while reading this post you read each word aloud in your head, why do we do this? Who are we reading too? What do you think?
