Basic definitions of awareness, attention, understanding, and intelligence

The word awareness is meaningful only in the context of the word consciousness. Consciousness is a divisive phenomenon. To be conscious of something is to be something and know the other thing. Consciousness is always in duality. You always say, “I am conscious of something.”
