To consciousness belongs the stream of experience. The experiences perceived and those which have not yet entered perception. Experience is, for consciousness, the “actually lived” and “the coming to be lived.” It fulfills awareness and, through reflection, leads to complete ideation which climbs out of “the present” and towards the future. This ideation which presents itself to consciousness through its own awareness, is the informing principle, the reflective glance that allows being to attach itself to an unyielding reality. Formed of its own memory of itself, and its eidetic visions of what lies outside of it, consciousness uses experience to tarry with the world and others; to apply its Ego inwardly so that all that remains on its periphery is that which coils within its sphere and either becomes or does not become an experience which is, in itself, an experience.
