Consciousness : the state of being aware of and responsive to one’s surroundings.
This is a random page I picked from an old health encyclopedia I have. I thought about the words on the page, then tried not to think about anything for a while. I tried to think of that moment just before a loss of consciousness, the moment when you realize everything is changing and you can’t stop whats happening. I haven’t had that feeling too many times, and certainly not recently. But I do remember that feeling of total fear. Fear that in a moment I wouldn’t be able to do anything. It was never a nice feeling.
