This is a Phenomenalogical Perspective on Consciousness
That means we assume nothing, the field of our experience, necessarily interacting with an apparent corporeal world (Whether in a dream or somehow 'actual') and understanding the world with a personal model built up over days, then weeks, eventually years and years of interactive corporeal experience.
We start with where we are in space and see how what we call consciousness is never quite What we are thinking about, but in fact it is Time itself, seeing through our eyes. What "we" often consider ourself is some person we know in the field of persons, and judge those events from a new time, a new context, and, if we identify with that idea of that person, who we thinki we are then we cannot see the clear consciousness of who we are now in this moment.
That is why we invoke the Brackets of the Phenomenological Epoké.
