A particular self-conscious consciousness could be considered a “mad” consciousness if it would treat itself as inconsequential in relationship to the world. It would decide that what is necessary as truth, what is essential, be shared by all other self-consciousnesses and not just its own. It starts out reasoning that the external world is at odds with the virtues and morals it believes are universal and, that this particular world, stands in opposition to rational order. This is the self-consciousness that enunciates “change” and redirection. It leads revolts and stampedes upon the inherited values passed down through history. As it transcends into subjectivity this particular consciousness falls to the self-consciousness it has become, and must isolate itself in its determinations to stand apart from the absolute concept at hand; the laws that govern a society and transform all individuality into a universal precept.
