What does it mean to be conscious? Flying across the country earlier this month, I read a recent issue of the Atlantic and in particular an article on anesthesia: “Awakening“. While general anesthesia is designed to make a surgery patient unconscious, we actually know very little about what consciousness actually is. One of the models of consciousness put forward by Giulio Tononi is that a conscious mind is an integrated mind.
