Abstract Consciousness is the breath that makes everything live. When you are conscious of the whole world at the same time then you can become conscious of Divine. Consciousness is the source of all the knowledge and power. 
Consciousness is the origin of all creation - without consciousness, no creation; and what we call "consciousness" is just a far-off contact, without precision and exactness, with the supreme Consciousness. It can not be seen but it makes the eyes to see. In Eca, it is told it is both within and without (it is all-pervasive & eternal); Kena it is told that it is formless, timeless, & eternal Truth.

 

Summary & Conclusion :What was attempted in this discussion was to look whether the duality involved in the understanding of consciousness is basic. Intentional and integral mode of consciousness could be better explained and the epistemological circularity involved in duality-approaches could be avoided if we include a third factor of "I-ness" which is non-linear, a local and a causal, and hence metaphorically described as "beside" in this paper. 
The mystery about consciousness is that it is self-oriented. Breakthroughs in consciousness research could happen if we encourage self-exploration and spiritual enquiry as well as third person approaches.
