I suggest that your position as presented is patent bollocks.

For a start, it's poorly presented: learn to parse your sentences, mate. Secondly, you have to define "consciousness": you're going to run in to a lot of problems doing so, the most obvious one being demonstrating a single well-recorded instance of a "conscious mind" existing absent a physical substrate - brain.

Were you conscious before, say, the age of 18 months? Do you remember actual events back then or before? How about in your past lives? Can you actually provide anything other than wild speculation and patent bullshit to support your claims?

Good luck, I look forward to your challenges.
