Consciousness

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

Since there is nothing at all that is different from consciousness, the five elements, along with the five senses and the five organs of sense, all these are consciousness only. Whatever is in the beginning, in the middle and in the end – all these are also consciousness. The indescribable illusion is also consciousness. The one who perceives everything and the act of perceiving are also consciousness.

All the world’s diversity, which derives from the misperceptions of the mind and which appears to be real – is the witnessing consciousness alone.

I have no idea what you're trying to say; This all sounds very poetic, but it's as if we don't even have the full context since you don't explain why that is.

Hey guys and gals: Stop looking for something behind the scenes. Reality doesn't need some metaphysical substrate. All there are are first person appearances.
And that too is subjective.

There is no one in the character to explain what that character is, knowledge is a character within the dream of separation. The illusory object and subject divide.

There is no answer to 'why' it appears that I am a character ..because what you REALLY are has no characteristics. One cannot have characteristics without first having a place to put them, that place being the screen of awareness, aka this empty space inseparable from it's contents, aka characteristics.

The endless questions to why or who or what is aware consciousness is a pointless endevour ...or you could have all your answers to your endless questions right here now in an instant contained in just one question only.... who wants to know? and the answer will come ..I do...and there is your answer.

This is it, tag you're IT...and it doesn't need an explanation...for who would/ could the other be to explain IT?

Yes, 1st person experiences are subjective. But then again all we have are subjective experiences. The scientific 3rd party objective is always
couched in the subjective. Always. The objective is something we've created to gather a consensus. But the scientists results are still occurring within the first person subjective!
