When it comes to consciousness, there are really two forms that exist, absolute consciousness and relative consciousness.
What is Absolute Consciousness
Absolute consciousness is your moment to moment awareness of everything in the world. I am aware of the computer screen in front of me and the Mulder and Scully Barbie dolls smiling down at me from their shrine on my shelf. I am aware of the snow falling on my skylight and the wind rustling my window panes. All of these things are arising in my pure or absolute awareness.
What is Relative Consciousness
Relative consciousness is how each of us interpret that absolute experience of consciousness.
