self-awareness. The question is really “what is it like to be self-aware”? That is where this article, “The Three Levels of Self-Awareness”, comes in.
The goal here is to turn a new page, and not wait for it to load up, by using the three levels of self-awareness that are part of the The Three Levels of Self-Awareness. It’s actually a more complex process than just a simple one. We’ll talk about that later in this chapter.
Now that we’re all done with that. Self-awareness is a lot of words. I recommend you take a look at this video from the TED talk by the same name. It makes it seem rather simple.
You should probably listen to the TED talk as well, as it has some pretty awesome insights into how you can actually turn your brain into a super-smart computer in no time. You should also read “The Self-Awareness Challenge” by the same name as it goes deeper into the topic. Both should give you a good idea of how to approach the process of getting self-aware.
This is the part of the video where the concept of “self-awareness” makes sense. Here, a guy named Richard Wiseman explains that our brains are like a highly sophisticated computer that needs a lot of processing power. You can think of our brains as a huge computer that we just click “on” so we can perform a task. We don’t actually need to be aware of ourselves.
The question is, how do we get a computer to do a thing? The answer is that we need to use some of the same techniques that we use to get a computer to do something else. There’s a lot of common elements, but the key to getting a computer to do something is taking certain steps. This is the part of the video where Richard explains some of the steps we can take to turn our computer into a conscious entity.
How do you actually get a computer to give you commands? The answer is, when we give commands, we can use the same techniques that we use to get a computer to do something else.
If you’ve ever had your computer do something you didn’t want it to do, you’re familiar with the “command line” trick.
If you take your keyboard and the commands you want it to do, and you plug that into a computer, you can write a script. Then you just put it on a USB flash drive, plug it into that computer, and run the script. This is called a “shell”. If you have a computer with an “exec” command, you can use that instead.
