There are two types of reflections that compromise our consciousness. The first is the focused conscious side. Where from the outsider's point of view, a person may just be a zombie acting out life and exposing one's character by the means of behaviour alone. Yet the actual real thing may be different. The subject may actually be experiencing different levels and progress of thought. One could be so pre-occupied that they switch realities without knowing it. Now to discuss the second type, we could take the same example only the subject doesn't follow his/her thoughts but merely let's it free. This is the subconscious type and if we actively judge people based on their behaviour alone, we can never say when one is in such type of consciousness or the other. The interesting topic which is good to ponder is that we can agree about the demarcating line the divides these two types, and one open door towards this proof is how sometimes we become conscious of being unconscious; we catch ourselves off guard yet our physical body of a machine was actively operating. I’ve had deep reflections while watching a film that I actually understood, as if a conscious part of me was multitasking by watching both the film and listening attentively to my internal voice. When consciousness leaves the mind, where does it go? Does the question matter only if it goes back (life)?
