Consciousness is the closest thing to you because it’s what you are. It’s the only thing that belongs to you, and one defining thing in your existence of which you are unaware. You focus on what your consciousness is observing, forgetting the observer. The mind/brain is a sixth sense organ. Consciousness uses the brain, but it is not the brain. You see, hear, taste, touch and smell only because you are this consciousness. It’s always present, so you don’t notice it, like you don’t notice gravity.
