Consciousness is our gateway to experience: it enables us to recognize Van Gogh & rsquo;s starry skies, be enraptured by Beethoven & rsquo;s Fifth, and stand in awe of a snowcapped mountain. Yet consciousness is subjective, personal, and famously difficult to examine: philosophers have for centuries declared this mental entity so mysterious as to be impenetrable to science.

Bor argues that this brain-based faculty evolved.
