Sorted Consciousness

perspective17Our conscious motivations, ideas, beliefs are a blend of false information, biases, irrational passions, rationalizations, prejudices, in which morsels of truth swim around and give reassurance, albeit false, that the whole mixture is real and true.

The thinking process attempts to organize this whole cesspool of illusions according to the laws of logic and plausibility. This level of consciousness is supposed to reflect reality; it is the map we use for organising life.
