STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
State of Consciousness is often used in everyday speech to
describe being awake, self aware and responsive to the
environment. This "self-awareness" may involve thoughts,
sensations, perceptions, moods, emotions, and dreams.
Generally, there is nobody who is always in a normal state of
consciousness all the time. Sensory deprivation sleeping,
meditation, hypnosis and drug induced experiences are all examples
of these altered states of consciousness.
