We don't know what creates this feeling. It is given to us as a phenomenon – you have an “inner eye” with which you can feel the world around you and the world of your consciousness, and it is with this eye that you associate yourself – everything that you see with it can be designated as “not you”, but it is yourself that you cannot see with it. It is impossible to turn the eye inside out. But you can try, which is what they do in various spiritual practices. Believe them or not, no one will decide for you.
So far, our self-awareness remains a miracle, because a miracle happens where no one is looking.
Your identification with consciousness is due to the fact that in you, in addition to consciousness, there is one who perceives consciousness (not included observer). Let's call it that – “the one who says I”.
This is the feeling that the Solar System gives you. One of the principles of its organization is the individuality of all living things on Earth, including humans. This means that each person has their own brain, head and body. Thoughts, consciousness, clothing, and everything else that is not like others. This is the power of life. And a person must preserve this individuality, because only death has the same identity.
First of all, there is no Burden of Being, it is your own idea. You asked this question out of a Gollow thought that came up inside you. How do you know that these are your thoughts? Maybe they appeared in someone else's gollow thousands of years ago and accidentally came to you in the course of time. The main thing in philosophy is not whose consciousness, but how my consciousness can transform the external consciousness. People's consciousness. Consciousness of the universe or God. Then you will know the path of the philosophist. Good luck)
The” burden of being ” is precisely defined by consciousness. Based on Hindu philosophy, consciousness is really “someone's”, but only it is how to put it – “One for all”, and in any manifestations of all living things, and in some interpretations of everything material in general. And what you feel as ” mine “is” One for all ” consciousness, limited by your ego, the capabilities of the physical shell. You perceive this “limitation” as “I” or a person. With the death of the ” Ego ” or personality disappears, the body and the limitations of the “general” consciousness associated with its physical capabilities die.
Consciousness is a synthesis of mind+personality+life experience. By the way, personality is also formed from life experience. Therefore, your consciousness can only be your own. If you start imagining that you have lived some other life, you should either live in India, where you have invented a good religion, or go straight to a psychiatrist. As for “after death”, we can only guess. My “guesses” are as follows: for some time, consciousness will be present in the soul, you will remember yourself, your life, and it will be painful and the soul does not need it, because it no longer has anything to do with it. In addition, the soul freed from the body will have access to EVERYTHING (except bodily joys), all the information of the universe, and the memories of the sorrowful bodily life will only be a burden to it. (and maybe in joy, but still not to anything). The soul will try to get rid of this unproductive information load, that is, from the individual. In the end, both the personality and memories will be erased, and the soul will simply completely connect with the world of God (the energy structure of the universe). (this is all in my book, The Theory of Everything That Isn't There. This is not an advertisement, but a reference for those who want to understand this topic, the book is freely available. And I don't pretend to be the omniscient pasarata)
It's simple :you are ALONE in this consciousness,there is no one else there.
Therefore, it is YOURS and no one else's.
If it was someone else's mind, you wouldn't be there.
For someone else would have thought,reasoned,dreamed, and this he would have been aware of himself,and not you.As it is, it is only you who do it, and no one else.
Although…there is SOMEONE ELSE for whom your mind can be an open book…but He does not read his creations unnecessarily,because the Creator was the One Who once ironically hinted to humanity ,at the stage of the latter's formation, that it is immoral to read other people's letters…)
Everything I notice about myself is a priori alien. I don't feel my own way. This is the brain itself, in which awareness occurs. Why, then, is there a clear understanding of the boundaries of self-identification at any given time? And why is this sense of self contradictory? Because the mind is a kind of monitoring system, a security alarm that is triggered when an alien object enters the field of view. To recognize a stranger, you need to be one. This is the mechanism of consciousness. The brain is generally very fond of “tasting everything”, “being in someone else's skin”,”exploring from the inside out”. This is especially evident in the case of the disease. The consciousness of a sick person (regardless of the nature of the disease) is broadcasting from the position of the disease. If you listen carefully to his speech, you will easily recognize at what moments the disease speaks in him.
I see the mechanism itself as follows. There are different types/ways of implementing a cognitive function.
SCIENTIFIC method of cognition (rational): I am the subject, you are the object, it is the object. This is not the right option, let's move on.
MYSTICAL way of knowing (irrational): it is the subject, I am the object, you are the object. This is also past.
METAPHYSICAL way of knowing: you are the subject, it is the object, I am the object. Here. This is our case. Look at the world through other people's eyes, developing your own views.
The soul has consciousness, and man is just a shell for it. So somehow our body picks up the vibrations (?) of the soul. However, since we are not able to isolate the soul directly, and the soul itself is inseparable from it during a person's lifetime (it is its component, therefore it would be strange for it to interact with him physically); our own ego, which belongs to the bodily and not to the spiritual aspect, dictates to us what we think independently-this creates such an illusion. Proof: the deceased does not have consciousness, the soul leaves.
My existence is based on the independence of the individual from either external or internal influences. A person is a unity of being and consciousness based on parental prerequisites in the development of the child's psyche. The further process of being a person develops his consciousness. After a person leaves him, his thoughts, theories, and creative works remain. And he didn't have the feeling that,that his consciousness wasn't his , but someone else's.This is not a valid question.
The fundamental principle of discrimination: Me and Neya.
If I am not Being, then who am I and where am I? No one and nothing and nowhere.
If I am Being, then who am I? If I am indistinguishable from being, then I am not.
But I am. I am aware of the Self and I am aware that being is Me and not Me, that is, I distinguish. And only being knows how the principle works.
“Consciousness is always someone else's.”That's the question and answer .Yes, this consciousness came to me that after death it will remain someone else's . So the torment will be endless. A person does not immediately begin to understand himself, and each of us can wake up in someone else's body . How sad that is ….
We didn't know until then that we had come to this world .We learned about this gradually .
I want to wake up in the body of an entrepreneur, a naval officer, maybe a reputable bandit, or an engineer . Or better yet, don't wake up at all …
Self-identification. This is the answer. Now let's analyze:
What is death?
In fact, for what you perceive as the basis of yourself, death is the end of that basis. For example. If you are a person, then your death is a radical change of personality or its disconnection. If you are your memories, then losing your memory or erasing it is your death. If you are your talent, then, well, and so on.
How do we apply this knowledge?
Here are cases in which you personally will disappear after death:
Emptiness. If you are the body, and your mind and memories are turned off at brain death, then after physical death you will be gone in about 20-40 minutes.
Soil. If your energy and the particles of your soul mix after death, then you participate in universal immortality, as in the water cycle in nature. But you, like any structure, disappear after death. Therefore, the burden of being is already borne by someone else. What becomes of consciousness? We don't know for sure, but the sense of self will no longer be you.
Lower worlds or hell and heaven with memory loss.
Reincarnation in a fly or baobab tree.
Reincarnation with memory loss. Then you still have a chance to start again one day, if you can recover some of the memory.
Psychotrauma, disfiguring the personality beyond recognition.
You can also end up dead in your lifetime if you break your psyche or have amnesia.
Please note that all this concerns you personally. If you get one of these endings by the method of death or by merit, and someone else does not, then the other may not die.
If you include materialism, you are left with option 1. and disappearance after death. But then self-awareness is a function of the firmware and hardware. That is, if you find a way to copy you, you can achieve your personal immortality.
All this time I assume that all the people of the Earth are not manifestations of a single Consciousness, but separate individuals.
