I suggest "consciousness" results from the development of control of one part of
the brain over that of another.  More specifically, I intend to say that
consciousness results from the control of appetites and aggression by the frontal
lobes.  In evolutionary terms, this would be the first recognition of "self," in
that it is a form of "I" will not act lower drives.
