It all comes down to this question: is consciousness a side effect of our biological brain, or is there a part of consciousness that operates independently from the biological brain. Or is all of consciousness operating from outside our biological brain? I prefer the position in the middle, not entirely this, not entirely that.
I follow my freedom of not knowing. This leaves both possibilities open to be used by my reasoning consciousness, not closing myself from one or the other. Eyes and hands wide open, heart reaching out.

But it doesn’t work when I try it as an experiment, since then ‘attraction’ is not genuine.
