What is this?

Consciousness is a universal property of embodied minds that refers to the experience of a subjective, first-person world. These experiences enable us to interact with our environment and respond to changes in our environment. It emerges from the binding of sensory modalities into unified subjectively experienced objects and actions, and involves a phenomenal vocabulary, that is, a range of intrinsic qualities of feeling or experience. Consciousness is also related to intentionality and action, as it allows us to select and respond to our environment, and can change over time with learning and with various cognitive interventions.
