I like to watch the YouTube channel Vsauce, which is a channel of videos about random topics including science, funny pictures, and things you can do online. I came across a video today that questions and is titled, "What is Consciousness?" Although there is no clear answer to that question, it brings up some interesting information, and, not surprisingly, more questions. But I suppose that is the sort of question that leads to more questions! Personally, I think consciousness -- the mind and our awareness -- exists independently of the physical brain. I think the physical brain is more or less a control grid for the mind to control the physical body in the physical world. But that doesn't mean the study of the physical brain isn't interesting and sometimes confounding!
At the end of the video, there is also a link to a "Leanback," which is just a playlist of interesting videos about a topic with short videos of narration by the host in between each informative video. It's a cool thing to just sit and watch if you have a little time to spare.
