Evolutionary biology meets consciousness: essay review of Simona Ginsburg and Eva Jablonka’s The Evolution of the Sensitive Soul

Accounting for the Evolution of the Sensitive Soul evolution and emergence of rational souls must await a later book. Salvation is the spiritualization of the self-realization of the moral consciousness, which thereby becomes possessed of survival value.

I have been pouring out my soul before the Lord. After presenting the historical, neurobiological, and philosophical foundations of their analysis, Ginsburg and Jablonka propose that the evolutionary marker of basic or minimal consciousness is a complex form of associative learning, which they term unlimited associative learning UAL.

On gradations of consciousness, I actually think the issue is that consciousness itself is not well defined.

These are, presumably, evolved natural kinds of raw exercise of intelligence which might or might not presuppose some equally raw degree of sentience. Unfortunately, I am not certain this term or more generally the idea of gradations of consciousness is well-defined.

In describing UAL as a biomarker for consciousness, they appear to take the second view—that while UAL is sufficient for consciousness, it is not necessary for it. It is the best synthesis I know about consciousness. Learning is making changes in the associative memory. And it is the reuniting of the morontia-soul trust of the seraphim and the spirit-mind trust of the Adjuster that reassembles creature personality and constitutes resurrection of a sleeping survivor. Without causal efficacy, consciousness is reduced to an epiphenomenon and it is difficult to see how such a complex biological feature would emerge and persist across species through evolution.

Variation and selection produce new information -information for a better adapted organism and indirectly information about the ecosystem of organism.
