Consciousness is the awareness of the outside world and of one’s own mental processes, thoughts, feelings, and perceptions.


Can unconscious thoughts affect your behavior?

The features of consciousness—what reaches your awareness, and the decisions you are making—make up your consciousness state. Possible states include coma, deep sleep, hypnosis, meditation, daydreams, and alert wakefulness.

A0. Consciousness States

10. States of consciousness can be viewed as different points on a continuum of consciousness, from active to passive.

20. In active states, you intentionally direct and manipulate mental activity. In passive states, your mind wanders and allows various mental processes to “come to mind.”

30. People are most often in a waking state, in which attention and arousal dictate the mental processes reaching awareness at any moment.

B0. Levels of Consciousness

10. The mental events that you are currently aware of exist at the conscious level.

20. At the nonconscious level are mental events that cannot be experienced consciously.
