Are "consciousness", "wakefulness", "wakefulness", and "metacognition" conscious access?

Updated: May 29, 2022

(Cognitive science) In coaching, rewriting the unconscious is a powerful means of achieving the goal.

By studying "Study of Consciousness", I would like to think about my method and the coaching theory, such as unconscious rewriting.

This series of blog posts is my study note.


He explained that conscious access is "a mechanism to raise awareness of much unconscious information around us." Conscious access is a state of consciousness activity.

Think more deeply about consciousness.

The words conscious and aware are

Use it like a fad, a fire, a bell sound, or a toothache "conscious of".

In this case, it is conscious access because it expresses whether or not the object is conscious.

You can also use it as "the injured soldier was still conscious", but it is a state in this case, so it is not conscious access.

Consciousness in this sense refers to the general ability to be lost while sleeping, fainting, or undergoing general anaesthesia.

Scientists refer to consciousness in this sense. As "awaking" and "wakefulness" avoid confusion, neither is conscious access.

"Awakening" is a term that refers to the cycle of sleep and awakening.

"Wakefulness" refers to excitement within the cortical and thalamic networks that support the state of consciousness.

In cognitive science, metacognition is the ability to think about one's mind.

Tomabechi-style coaching is called "increasing the degree of abstraction."

It is a term spread by Dr Tomabechi.

Metacognition is to "capture one's cognitive activity objectively" = to recognize one's cognition (thinking, feeling, remembering, judging, etc.).

In addition to looking objectively from a place that transcends oneself, it is called metacognitive ability, including the ability to control oneself and make calm judgments and actions.

Metacognition is conscious access.

"Several areas of the prefrontal cortex check their plans, give confidence in their decisions, and detect mistakes.

They act as closed simulator circuits, closely with long-term memory and imagination. Working together to support every one of us internally, thus we reflect on ourselves without the help of others. Consciousness and Brain: How Thoughts are Coded "(Stanislas Duanne), By Hiroshi Takahashi)
