Our experiences are the fruits of our own judgement. We are our consciousness’s perspective on our experience. So consciousness is aware of the truth of all our experiences. Consciousness is not aware of our perspective’s version of the truth of our perceived experiences. We evolved into what we perceive and define to be the ‘self’. In truth we cannot be defined because this would place limitation upon something that the concept of evolution has attempted but failed to explain. The body is the manifestation of consciousness.
