Consciousness has been defined as subjective experience, awareness, the ability to experience feeling, wakefulness, the understanding of the concept of self or executive function. It is an umbrella term that may refer to many mental phenomena. People realize what everyday experiences are, yet consciousness has been difficult to define. Consciousness may be said to imply four characteristics: subjectivity, change, continuity, and selectivity. Consciousness is the subject of confluence in the disciplines of philosophy of mind, psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence.
