    What is evolutionary purpose of subjective experience if p-zombies are just as good at survival as conscious humans?

    Yet more "Darwinism" applied to an INCREDIBLY complex subject!
    Step away from the current Faith of Darwinism and you may begin to find an answer!

    Is it possible then to evolve to not have consciousness due to humans not having to make a conscious effort to gain food? Also given the amount of energy and mental resources it takes to maintain our mental state

    This is the worst Kurzgesagt video I have watched and the thumbnail is hideous.

    These videos, except for presenting a huge amount of knowledge in a nutshell, they are also cute and present humanity in a kind and gentle way. I think that's the second reason for their success as a channel.

    I wish I could meet this team personally and make them my friends :D

    Food is the deciding factor for consciousness? What about sex?

    Crystals show some sort of basic awareness by growing in larger and larger structures over time under certain conditions , inside caves underground , for example . They appear to "reproduce" themselves in a similar way living organisms do reproduce themselves .

    What consciousness ultimately is, is a wasted gift. When we gain awareness in a dream we experience consciousness for the "first time" all over again, and it's such an exhilarating experience with endless possibility. Only to then wake up back into the dream like state that is our reality. Lacking the freedoms and wonder that we so rarely get a glimpse at in our dreams. Then again this is coming from someone who never got to experience life because of my differences, so my opinion is greatly skewed. Wish they had a cure for nightmares that didn't require a bullet to the head.

    Gotta love how reality is such a worthless hellscape that everything is forced to exist in. With minds that aren't even theirs, constructed out of nothing but memories of what did and did not hurt them. Only "wanting" to survive, reproduce and do much of anything else because of unending pavlovian torture at the hands of the skinner boxes that are their bodies. Real worthwhile existence we've all got here. 10/10, would incarnate again.

    You're talking about brain functions again instead of conciousness

    Everything good and fine, but what´s the mechanism of developing consciousness? The video shows just the island but I would also like to know the way how we achieve these islands...

    I will define consciousness: Consciousness is an illusion that allows us to survive.

    So, a cat have a less developed consciousness than us
    This means that we can possible reach a high level of consciousness, right ?
    But, this is not something possible to think about
    What can be more consciousness than this ... ?

    The rather circular argument in this video unfold as follows:

    Things develop consciousness to help navigate the world and get food for energy. 
    But why does it need food for energy?  
    Because it alive.
    But why is it alive? 
    Because it is conscious.

    Bad philosophy.
