Consciousness - What's with the Light Bulb above the head ?
The study of consciousness in science is producing theory, which is what science does until proof is at hand, science = proof. . Yet to measure consciousness using physical instruments may proove fruitless because the arena of consciousness is not physical at all. You can certainly see the effects of thought as a stimulus on the brain using an MRI. The nervous system is not only stimulated by thought but outside senses void of thought, like being burned by the flame of a candle, the stimulus of burning comes first, then the thought.

I am not a scientist, let me set that straight. I admire the field of science.....to a point. I've had debate with a young gentleman who was convinced that if you can't show me the proof then it doesn't exist. Yet I can see and I can experience and I can give this gentleman a way to see and to experience but he does not take up the offer and the argument goes on and on and on. The pursuit of convincing someone what you experience is useless unless they too have the experience. Our mind will stay closed to many things until you venture beyond the limits of your current knowledge. Knowledge is to know, and to know is to experience. For many knowledge comes from the written word, but for others it's not good enough to be told. The experience must be the convincing element.
There is nothing magic or supernatural about coming to see for yourself that consciousness or the realm of creative thought is not physical. The process of learning to think above your head has perhaps been practiced previously and we've forgotten the art.
Where does inspiration come from? Where do ideas come from? Where does creativity come from? This is all consciousness. And it is above your head and not inside it. Layers and layers of highways of thought for you to TAP INTO. Like a light bulb going off above your head - that's where you go to get your ideas and your inspiration which allows you to be creative and active and stimulated. Like putting life into the physical puppet
If you have enough discipline, enough willpower to have a go then by all means take the test and see for yourself. Quieten the mind enough to see. Meditate. Yes, sorry you will have to at least have a go. Again nothing magic, nothing supernatural. Just empty your head for a minute. That's all the time you will need.
Slow thoughts down at least to a point where you can feel them. It's like you watch them drop down into your brain. Seriously it's an amazing feeling. This experience opens you up to attempt to fathom why you sense clutter around your skull. In the majority of cases it is how we use the inspiration, how we manage the thinking process that can create a grasping or heavy sensation in and around the skull. Be aware of what procrastination does to your brain, what does it feel like? To SEE and feel thoughts descending like pancakes into the physical brain is likened to pancakes being dropped into the pan.
For those interested in our metaphysical abilities, I had a conversation with a cyber friend on the emanation of thought which may interest you. http://hubpages.com/hub/Consciousness__Thoughts_and_the_Brain Whilst this subject may seem foreign to your current level of thinking, don't let that close you to the possibilities of this subject. For those who dabble in past lives your understanding of consciousness as a continuum may be stimulated by this topic. Even if you have no interest in past lives, don't let that frighten you away from seeing what consciousness is.
Regardless of your understanding of thinking, having an open mind whether you see it's in your head or above makes for broader possibilities.
