Sy Ginsburg - I appreciate your summary of the Gurjieff view of
consciousness. You go on to write,
>Gurdjieff says we have for existing in consciousness state #3 is
>"ATTENTION". It is, in fact, our only tool. The work is to include ourself in
>our ATTENTION in every moment and at the same time include in our ATTENTION
>whatever else we are attentive to.
I find this significant - This "Attention" - has the character of
"intentionality" - in the sense that "Attention" is impossible without an
act of intention...Would you say that "intentionality" is a pre-requisite to
consciousness? Or does consciousness exist independently of "intention" ?
