5 Modes of Consciousness.

Philosopher of mind, J. P. Moreland, has stated that there are 5 modes that consciousness is expressed. (In a simplistic analogy, there are 3 states that water is expressed: ice, water, and steam.)

Consciousness (or, the “soul”) is expressed through:

  1. Sensations.
  2. Thoughts.
  3. Beliefs.
  4. Desires.
  5. Acts of Will.
