Edit summary : Consciousness is associated with all matter and vice versa, they are two sides of the same coin. Both are primary. Inspired in part by Whitehead's "process philosophy," all things are actually processes. All processes/entities oscillate between potentiality and actuality, mirroring key features of quantum mechanics. Resonating processes sync up when close enough and can, when sufficiently synced, result in higher-level conscious entities that combine the lower-level conscious entities into a new whole. Biology has leveraged faster information/energy resonance pathways that allow for far larger-scale relatively stable-over-time conscious entities. It is the speed of resonance pathways that determines the size of each higher-level conscious entity in each moment. Developed by Hunt and Schooler, initially described in Hunt 2011 ("Kicking the Psychophysical laws into gear: A new approach to the combination problem."
