Consciousness is the appearance of the world. The human consciousness differs from other biologically evolved phenomena fundamentally, that it makes a reality to appear in itself. Consciousness as a reality generator is the central theme of the film essay I-Machina. In a synthetic world a dancer moves graciously. Her movements are accompanied by a distorted voice which at the same time embodies our own inner voice. Her body resembles a loosely connected structure, similar to our model of reality, which can also disintegrate again at any moment.
