Are You Conscious? Of WHAT?

Our ability to choose to be conscious is what separates us from our animal friends. They act upon pure instinct. We have the capacity to understand and seek knowledge.

Our brains are designed to make choices. We do it constantly. Literally millions of times per day. 

I find myself making choices out of habit because I am sometimes lazy. I am tired, do not want to think, expel energy to make a choice. 

Other times when I make habitual choices it is about routine, leveraging the power of not thinking and using my time more wisely or many times making the same choice to create a predictable result.

So what are you thinking about consciousness???
