Any interest in human personality and culture must approach the concept of consciousness. Various disciplines have produced explanations of the foundation and context of human consciousness, yet their lack of assimilation perpetuates the ambiguity of conscious. Theorists diverge on either a physical or ?cultural? underpinning for explaining consciousness, with little medium for collaboration and consequently, little progress towards a successful understanding of consciousness. Deliberations on consciousness oscillate between mechanistic analogies which lack the synergy to be valid, and humanistic explanations which lack the tangibility to be grasped. Yet it is perhaps the nature of these qualms found through approaching consciousness that best display its disposition.

[...] Computer analogies are attempts to atomize and clarify conscious processes from a more adaptable construct. Models such as Dennett's von Neumann example lead to an understanding of mental software, hard drive plasticity, and programmed consciousness (Dennett 211). The belief that ?conscious human minds are more-or-less serial virtual machines? permits the concept of the mind as the computer and the motor skills as the functions (Dennett 218). Yet this fails to consider the involvement of consciousness, and the capacity to which a computer's ability is equivalent to consciousness. [...]
