How much say did you have in the Formation of your Consciousness? Have a little think. . . . . . . And how much say do you think you have in the reFormation of your

Consciousness? Now there’s a thought. . . . . . . The more aware you are of how your consciousness works and how it

got to be the way it is, then the more say you will have. There are probably millions of books on the many arms of psychology

which discuss the theories and proven hypotheses on how we came to be who we are. In this chapter I am going to take you through some concepts which I think are the most important influences on the lifelong Formation of Consciousness – see Figure 5.1. Of these general classifications (as the Purpose of this book does not require the detail), some have been recognized and verified by mainstream psychology and some I believe have yet to be.
