    Can we therefore say consciousness is one's awareness of a subject matter or incident.

    Consciousness is being aware of your internal state and external environment. If that is true, then there must be a state in which you are aware of your external and not your internal and vice versa. Unconscious, like a coma, is the state of not being aware internally or externally.

    Definition of consciousness Consciousness refers to the level of awareness of our internal state and of our external environment. It consists of the sensations, perceptions, memories and feelings that we are aware of at any given moment. Consciousness exists at different levels, from being in a coma (unconscious) to being fully alert and in a state of hyperactivity.

    Being conscious is also being aware of something within oneself, such as ideas and thoughts

    Psychology -> Definition of consciousness Definition of consciousness Consciousness refers to the level of awareness of our internal state and of our external environment. It consists of the sensations, perceptions, memories and feelings that we are aware of at any given moment. Consciousness exists at different levels, from being in a coma (unconscious) to being fully alert and in a state of hyperactivity. Consciousness also exists in a wide range of states. Depending on what we are doing, consciousness can be highly focused or more passive. During a typical day, we experience many different states of consciousness from being very alert in an exam to feeling drowsy while travelling home on the train.
