ZetaTalk: Being Conscious

齐塔人之声:拥有意识
Note: written Jun 15, 2002

注:写于2002.6.15

A difficult concept for many humans is the concept of consciousness. They see the babe in the crib, aware seemingly only of its stomach and need for milk, and compare it to the dog at their feet, seemingly aware and alert. Is the babe conscious, and the dog not? The point at which consciousness is present is not crisp or clear. Is the human conscious because they have a certain IQ? Yet it is reported that retarded humans can have incarnating souls. Is the human conscious because they discern themselves as separate from other humans? Yet so many humans are so fuzzy about their identity that they join any group for a sense of belonging, and confuse their actions with the leaders. Is the human conscious because they have a memory, can compute, can put A and B together and come up with C? Yet the Chimp uses tools, and a wolf pack can figure where the prey may be running to next, and many animals have long memories and are crafty. At what point does consciousness click in, or click out, if it does, and is it thus possible for a dog to have a soul and a human not?
对于许多人来说意识这个概念很难理解。他们看到婴儿床里的婴儿,似乎只意识到肚子饿了想要喝奶,跟脚边的狗相比,狗看起来不仅有意识而且还很警惕。难道说婴儿有意识,而狗就没有吗?到底什么是意识分得不干不脆。说人类有意识是因为他们有一定的智商吗?然而据报道某些智力迟钝的人类也会拥有化身的灵魂。说人类有意识是因为他们清楚地知道自己是与其他人不同的单独的个体吗?然而如此之多的人身份感模糊以至于他们为了那种归属感而加入各种团体,并且将他们自己的行动与领导的行动混淆在一起。说人类有意识是因为他们拥有记忆,能够计算,将AB放在一起会得出C吗?然而黑猩猩也使用工具,而且狼群能够计算出猎物下一步将会逃向哪里,还有很多动物拥有长期记忆并且诡计多端。到什么程度算是有意识,到什么程度又算没有意识?有没有可能一条狗拥有灵魂而人类没有呢?
We have stated that an existing soul may chose to incarnate in an animal that does not have the potential of sparking a soul, for education reasons. Thus, the dog or snake or dolphin does not spark a soul, but can be incarnated on occasion. To spark, the biological entity must have the capacity to envision itself as separate, and where many animals seem to have this trait, they do not. A dog will understand that it is being yelled at by its master, or snarled at by the leader of the pack, and by groveling and crawling away is indicating they seem to understand another has interacted with them, as a separate being. But this is instinctive activity, this is not a discernment of separate biological entities. The dog has evolved to react in such a manner, to challenge until certain signs are present, then to submit. Instinct is not consciousness. Biologically programmed reactions are not consciousness.
我们声明过,为了教育的理由,一个存在的灵魂可能会选择化身到没有点燃灵魂能力的动物中去。因此,狗或者蛇或者海豚并不能使灵魂点燃,但是偶尔会有灵魂化身进入其中。想要点燃,生物实体必须拥有认清自己是与外界分别的这种能力,而且虽然很多动物看上去拥有这种特性,事实上它们没有。一条狗会懂得他被主人呼唤,或是被领头狗呼唤,而且还能通过匍匐和爬行表明他们似乎明白另一个人/狗正在与它相互交流,作为一个单独的个体。但这是本能活动,这并不是意识到了分别的生物性个体。生物程序性反应并不是意识。
Even as the babe is lying in its crib, asleep or crying for milk, seemingly unaware of its surroundings, it is aware. It understands that when it smiles at mother, and mother picks it up, that is has engaged in an interaction with another. This is not the same as a birdling in a nest, putting its beak up for food when the mother bird alights. That is instinct. On evolving worlds that do not have genetic engineering, the species that eventually emerges to have consciousness, and thus sparking souls, gets there slowly. At first, there is instinct. Then there is increasing intelligence until the concept of separateness begins to be a factor. Increased intelligence tends to be selected for survival, as the intelligent species can better their odds. Thus, the more intelligent in the group breed to increase intelligence, and the trend hastens yet more. Thus, where not visible in man, his consciousness, awareness of himself as separate, a factor absolutely necessary for sparking of souls, is there.

即使婴儿躺在床里,熟睡或是哭求牛奶,看起来似乎意识不到他的周围环境,实际上意识到了。他明白当他冲着母亲微笑,母亲会将他抱起来,这就是在与他人相互作用。这和巢里的小鸟,当妈妈回来时伸出小嘴讨要食物是不一样的。后者是本能。在那些并没有实施遗传工程的进化中的世界里,最终出现意识,因此点燃灵魂的物种,要花费很长时间。起初,是本能。之后智力慢慢增加直到 分别 的概念开始成为一个因素。智力的增加趋向于在生存中被筛选出来,因为智慧物种能够增大他们的胜算。因此,种群中更加智慧的生物繁殖会增加智力,这种趋势渐渐加强。因此,虽然对人类来说不甚明显,但是他们拥有意识,意识到自己是单独的个体,这对点燃灵魂来说是必不可少的因素。
