John describes how "consciousness is the most important aspect of our lives and yet a neglected subject in our scientific and philosophical culture". He goes further to say that, "[Consciousness] is the most important aspect of our lives... It's a necessary condition to anything being important in our lives. If you care about science, philosophy, music, art, whatever, it's no good if you are a zombie or in a coma."
