consciousness

What is your definition/model of consciousness?
o    what are its components;
o    how is it (and/or its components) detected;
o    where is it located/experienced/activated;
o    how is it related to mind, brain, body, Body, self, and society;
o    and how does it take into account Wilbur’s 4 quadrants (even if you are rejecting that model, address it and why your model gives a better understanding of consciousness)?
•    What important social questions or issues could be addressed more fully by incorporating your understanding of this aspect of human life?
