“what if consciousness is the lag time? ” In reading arguments against plant consciousness (I want it but I’m looking at different opinions), one of their arguments had to do with feedback – and showed the feedback system in the human brain as a possible model of consciousness and I thought: “what if consciousness is the lag time? ” “Extensive reciprocal communication (back-and-forth arrows) between processing centers (ovals) in the human brain is an indicator of consciousness. Such integrative communication also occurs within the centers (not shown). This is a side view of the brain, with anterior to the right. For simplicity, we only label/number a few of the main centers: 1. primary visual cortex of the cerebrum; 2. somatosensory cortex; 3. amygdala (for fear and other emotions); 4. thalamus; 5. superior colliculus of midbrain (optic tectum).
