Conciousness and the Brain

Just finished reading an awesome book and this quote completely blew me away and I’ve been thinking about it far too much:

consciousness is an emergent property of the brain as a whole, a natural consequence of millions of neurones processing information in parallel. It may seem astounding that something so “physical” as electro-biochemical processes within the brain could produce something so intangible as consciousness, but that is what happens. We just don’t yet understand how.
