Consciousness = Self-awareness?

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

To some degree self-consciousness can be observed or measured in others, but is this the same as consciousness?

And if consciousness is not the same as self-awareness, then what is the difference?

What do you think?
Consciousness is the state of being aware. There is one mode of consciousness when you are aware of yourself. You are aware of many other modes of consciousness on other times.
