– Does consc. happen at birth or after being stimulated by the environment through senses at a later point possibly close to 1 year of age?
– Does consc. arise due to connections formed by neurons, whereas most non-human animals neurons don’t have the capacity to form many connections or
there are not enough neurons to develop a sense of self-awareness?
– Is it an requirement for the neurons and their connections to maintain previous connections for a prolonged period of time?
– If consc. occurs because of many types of connections to different parts of the brain along with a minimum number of neurons and/or connections, then consc. is an inevitable part of the brain given more neurons, connections.
