Consciousness first

Would we know that consciousness exists

without being conscious first?

Come to think of it

would we know that anything exists

– including thought?

Therefore, why believe

that neural operations in the brain

somehow gauge its reality

by being different

and indifferent?

Discovery

Did nature give us a brain

to gain a mind in return?

So who’s the proud owner?

Does the brain tell us what to do

– organising our actions and decisions

formulating our ideas, concepts, and reasons

– the engine of thinking, knowing and memory

orientating scientific understandings

in the ‘neurological mind’

in order to discover

what it is doing?
