The Science Behind Consciousness
By Justin Kander
Some people talk about being lucky, getting lucky, having something lucky. But it's very possible that all of us, everyone in the world, are born being very, very lucky.
What follows is just a theory, but quite possible. Every man's body on the planet contains billions of sperm cells, and is constantly creating them. Each cell contains an individual that would be developed once the sperm united with the egg. That individual body would hold a consciousness. Therefore, each sperm cell holds one individual that holds one consciousness. If that sperm never unites with an egg, that individual consciousness never develops.
What does this mean? The chance by which you came about was 1 / trillions. That's slimmer than winning one hundred state lotteries (no statistical research backs that up, but it sounds true). So, theoretically, anyone can say that they are lucky to be alive.
Of course, this is not the only theory. Another is that if a consciousness that would be in one sperm dies, then that same consciousness could come out in another person. A problem with this theory is that it would kick out an existing consciousness, but it's still possible. Another theory is that one consciousness is in all sperm until that consciousness is developed. Once it is, a new consciousness would take over.
There is another subject dealing with consciousness, although very unrelated to this one, and the question is: What is conscious? Humans, obviously, but that is the only thing we are 100% sure about. Monkeys, dogs, cats, tigers, wildebeests, and other large animals seem to be conscious, but they could just be acting like bacteria, and doing whatever is necessary to survive. However, animals like dogs go beyond that, as they are able to be trained and exhibit things behind fear of death. But on a lower level, like ants, beetles, and other bugs, the chances of them having any consciousness is low. They are most likely just automatically moving and doing things simply so they will survive. Some might say that bugs do amazing things; spiders, for example, make webs, and that appears to take intelligence. Think of a virus, which is definitely not conscious (and is still being argued to if it is even alive). They do amazing things; attach to a cell, inject DNA/RNA, and multiply through that process. They're not conscious and they can do that, and it is most likely the same thing with bugs. So if you've ever felt bad about stomping on an anthill or killing a spider, just remember that they didn't even know what was going on.
