Consciousness trying to confine itself to a conceptual format would be like light trying to shine on itself.

In some faraway mountains (or maybe it was some ravines)
no, mountains, I imagine (it sounds so much loftier and inspiring) -- any damn way
this guy found an ancient, mystical dictionary which turned out to have only one page,
with one word defined -- "Consciousness."
And you know what it said? It said:
"Consciousness: a well-known synonym for many other things."

...Well, sir, after reading this, the man sat down on a rock and pondered this
then reread it several times (always followed by some additional pondering),
then finally it was as though some sort of "light" ignited in his head,
and he immediately stood up and threw the book as far away as possible;
which takes us back to the beginning of the story: "In some faraway mountains...."

This.....self-awareness.......is as close as it can get.
Any closer and it melts back into itself.
It's always trying to break apart and merge back again.
And it is who you are.

In order to know that, one would have to be outside of consciousness.
And that ain't happenin.
The I amness emerges downstream within sentient-awareness and evolves to become self-awareness.
The only problem with that is that there is no self.
When consciousness tries to look inward....it seen nothing......for one very good reason.

"Consciousness" is the label that "what-ever-it-is" gives to itself and in so doing it creates another conceptualized object that it mistakes for a separate existential entity.
It then tries to define this objectified entity by using other labels.
When its covers are pulled........there is nothing left but the laughter.
