Keith Jones on Consciousness
August 25 2012, 2:00 AM
The consciousness that we experience as "ourselves" is a defence system against the intrusions of other people but in life or death situations our good angel shoves us aside, slams things into slow motion and does its damnedest to rescue us.
If improvisers were content to be "Just average" and go with the flow this good angel could operate even when there wasn't a dire emergency.
