I think most of you will agree that awareness is a biological function facilitated by the specific physiological functions of the nervous system of the more complex living systems residing on planet earth. But, if I'm failing in my assessment of you all, here are some definitions from the web dictionaries available on google. this is from the Oxford Dictionary: Please look these definitions of "awareness" over carefully then could you please state any objections to these definitions or your support for any one or more of them. In this manner we might come to a better understanding of the word "awareness" and what it means. We might avoid any more collisions with these fairytale like notions of a metaphysical "consciousness" or the hairsplitting arguments that may actually be clogging up the PF server or, in the least, clogging up constructive communication on the PF site.
