Intuition - possibly a manipulating non-human force?

Lately I've been wondering similarly about the conscience. Is it a purely evolutionary trait which was needed to protect the tribe against dangers (including more distant tribes)? Or is it a divine spark from The Creator? 

Consciousness as a evolutionary trait…

so you dont think animals are conscious?

Yes animals are conscious. Or at least it appears so! But doesn't necessarily mean they have a conscience.. ie a definition of right versus wrong, and empathy with those they hurt.

 

After all, psychopaths are conscious but their conscience is very much lacking!

I didn't say morality is related to consciousness. You asked if animals are conscious. This is a separate issue.

 

"Conscious" means the ability to experience sensory input.

"Conscience" is the ability to determine right from wrong, a sense of morality. But what is the source of the conscience? Is what I'm trying to get at here.

 

The meaning of consciousness is of course very important but is a much wider topic! The thread here is about intuition specifically.
